thanks for the detailed comment, actually I had bidden 4NT in case partner is 6-4 but failed to bid over 2c!

I really enjoy reading your articles, this nice article shows how hard it is to find the right defense (required a series of actions from both defender) while a single mistake may blow all efforts, if for instance a is not return then all has been in vain!

Henry was always with positive attitude and energy, in every debate he expressed himself with honesty and respect, although I only knew Henry through his posts in BW, I will miss him .

I do play 2 multi for at least 8 years the version consisting of weak in a major is in my opinion by far the best way to play it, the only advantage to include a strong NT is having 2NT opening free for both minors, the downside are too great, good opps don't really care about the strong 2NT option they treat the 2 opening as a weak in a major opening anyway..

As usual well written and great article, this hand also illustrates the basic principle that when we have two suiter hand one suit is very weak to treat the hand in respect, 6-4 instead of 6-5, when bidding a slam suit quality is a major parameter.

I agree with your general principle, “No one needs two minutes for a rebid…. There is no excuse for slow rebids in an uncontested auction.” this simply drive me crazy! the worst is that so many players actually bid like this most of them are “decent” players, but I am not sure that the STOP card will solve the problem it may even make the situation worst. I think that John suggestion to give a small procedural penalty is a better approach

Leo I understand that the 1 and 2 bid are incorrect, assuming I would have bid 1 the final contract is likely to be 2 doubled which go down at least -500

for me 3 or 3 are the best option, I prefer 3 to gather more about opener distribution, later 4 to setup keycard

Although I agree with most of JoAnna analysis the 4NT bid is inconstant with this logic to me, with the hand described above I would bid 5, expecting partner to cue with two aces over 4 (settled clubs as trumps). After partner bid 4 suggesting to play there something like xxx AQJ10xx Qxx(x) x(x) why bid 4NT? maybe opener though 3 is GF but that although don`t make much sense to me…

Agree +
1) this is a bidding poll
2) this is not even close to deserve the “article” title.
3) the fact that it is an important event is not relevant

I play this as a solid 6+ cards suiter with 16-19, any rebid unless 4 & 4 is a cue. Any other agrement is fine as long as it is coherent with your bidding system.
I think it is important to show a solid suit so for me 3NT show a solid suit, unless partner was passed hand.
