I was asked to mediate this deal:

Matchpoints, 11 tricks were there in diamonds, but 10-11 were possible in a heart contract.

North felt that South (with five good hearts and not-so-good four spades) should have first bid 3H.

South felt that North should have passed over the 4C advance (minimum opening with poor diamonds and 3-3 in majors).

My view is that South has somewhat the better of the argument.

1) Your view?

2) Do you see/favor a different or better sequence?
