I should have clarified… I was speaking in a context of Standard, not big club. My mistake.

I think, with a heart and a club in the bag, East might not have risen A…

I think so… he buttonholed different experts and left a trail of confused retractions…

To all the runners:

- What do you imagine partner has, to make a TOX of 3 and wish to run from 3?

- What would the redouble be at total-points?

Presumably the bidders gave thought to what it is North had, so I am not so sure it's a different question.

FWIW, I play the double of 2 as takeout of the one known suit - clubs… otherwise, one falls victim to an opening on rubbish and responder horsing about with a relay on nothing.

I am at a loss to imagine what it is the bidders expect North to hold. Maybe he has a 5-3-6-2.

- East opened 2 at favourable… having nothing at all for such a bid is quite the fashion

- West passed 3

- North's double of 3 was takeout

Above, I asked what South should do with:
xx Qxxxx xxx xx

Andy Bowles says, 4

So, what is a typical hand for North?

What is it that the SOS XX advocates recommend for South when he holds:
xx Qxxxx xxx xxx ?

I once defended 5NTX.

We were playing 4th-highest leads, and, being a dutiful partner, I led J.

Not unless they wanted to risk South cashing 10 tricks…

2 for me, every time.

If the opponents want to compete, they will have to advance to the three-level, and that could be costly.

Dont't worry about hands where you have 9 spades and 8 hearts and 4 fails…
