Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: 32 A4 AKT85432 A
Simple calculations suggest that this hand may occur 1 per 5000 deals. So if opener uses this 3C bid as a game forcing bid playing once per week it would take about 4 years for it to come up again. Thus it would not be a regular method of bidding ...

Steve, Please tell me why you think the opening hand qualifies for a game forcing rebid, with 4 losing tricks.
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: 32 A4 AKT85432 A
Do you think the hand qualifies for a game forcing bid with 4 losers and a responder promising none? Bidding a suit on a singleton makes it impossible to bid a second true suit. The 3C bid should be a mini splinter for hearts in this auction.
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: 32 A4 AKT85432 A
Yes Nick, Goren never discussed a rebid of 4 D,because he did not cover opening hands with an 8-2-2-1 pattern. The hand in question has 4 losers and it is not realistic to make a game forcing 3C bid expecting responder to have more than 6 pts. Openers objective ...
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: 32 A4 AKT85432 A
Most of the comments apply to advanced players, not to old style Goren bidding. Thus a rebid of 4 D would show exactly what kind of hand opener holds, namely 19-20 total pints with an 8-card suit. responder would know that 4 pts come from the long suit and thus ...

It might be interesting to show responder's hand, which was Ak-KJ9xx-Q-KTxxx. Responder assumed opener's 3C bid was based on a good 4 or 3 card club suit and asked for Aces and then Kings. Having all of these, responder bid 6 NT. It would have been a laydown ...
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: KT862 AKJ83 83 A
It might be interesting to see the South hand and the bids. South held AQx-Qxxxx- Axxx-Q and the bidding was 1H-2S- 3S-4C-4D-7H. North never asked for Aces nor for Kings. Down one. If the bidding had been 1H-2NT-3C-4NT-5H-5NT-6C then N would have known that the pair was missing 2 Kings ...
Jacoby 2 NT response
By conducting the slam investigation at two levels lower and learning most of what you need, there is plenty of room to ask for additional info without overbidding.
Quick Trick Step Bids
Why can't the strong responder just show what is above 4 or 5 with the San Fransisco bid and thus keep the bidding lower?
Small typeing
And yes, the problem has probably been caused by pressing Ctrl+ instead of Shift and not realizing the error. My computer skills are at best rudimentary and my typing is one finger at a time. So I make lots of mistakes.
