East is the dealer. Five of nine pairs got to 6 on this layout at the local club game. Unfortunately, we weren't one of them.

After 1-1-1 is this one of those situations where the probability of a slam justifies using Blackwood even with the possibility of two fast diamond losers? I'm quite sure that's how it went at all five of those tables.

I decided to use 4SF and bid 1-1-1-2-3-3. At that point, I think 3 sets the strain and shows interest. Partner bid 4 and I cue bid 5 hoping to hear about a diamond control, but partner wasn't on the same page.

What would your auction have been?
