There's No Justice in Bridge

Both were vulnerable

  •   As West, in first seat, I am dealt 12 HCP (4 spades and 4 diamonds).  I open 1D.  
  •  North Doubles with 13 HCP as follows:

10 7 5

K J 

Q J 10 6 4

A Q 8

 

  • East redoubles with 12 HCP and 4 spades.
  • South bids 2NT holding:

6

Q 7 6 5 4 2

5

J 10 7 5 2  

 

It's my bid and I'm totally confused.  I have 12 HCP, North doubles, my partner redoubles showing 10+ HCP and South makes a strong bid!

  •  I pass.
  • North passes.
  • My partner now shows her 5-card spade suit by bidding 3 spades.  Now I'm going to game.  But South doubles 3 spades!
  • Confused even more, I pass.  I'm happy to play 3 spades doubled.  
  • North then bids 3NT.
  • My partner doubles 3NT.
  • South now bids 4H.
  • I double that and it is the final contract.

They go down 1 for a top score!  Everyone else is in 4 spades my way making.
