Now, this business of wandering into the auction at the three-level is interesting.  Here is another example.

South was playing a system whereby 1 included all flat hands of less than 1NT strength; partner's pass of 2 confirmed that sort of holding.

At the table, South bid 3

 

Here are two hands partner might have. Partner opened each hand with 1, in the same World Championship, ten boards apart.

A.  A x  A x x x  J 10 x x   A x x

B.  A 10 x x  A x x  Q x x  K x x

 

The 3 bidder found the dummy with four trumps - Hand B. 

And that's just as well, because, after 3 was doubled by East, South passed and played there.
