We both agreed that X could not want a club, whether that is right or wrong I've no idea.

In my other regular partnership 1 is semi-forcing as Frances describes above.

This was my exact thinking at the table. And the question we discussed at the end of the hand was how often it is right to double.

1N - 2R:

2M+1 (same as 2R+2) : Max, 4-card support, either a trick source in oM or no trick source
3M: Min. 4-card support
Else: Max. 4-card support, trick source here
Retransfers for all of the above

3M-1: does not exist so we can always retransfer
1N - 2 - 2N: max. 4, trick source in

After 1N - 2R - 2R+2:
3R is retransfer (i.e not interested)
2R+3 : asks which, then 3M: max. no trick source, 2R+4: max. trick source in oM (re-transfer can still happen)

Thanks all. This was actually a UI situation, as I thought, PASS is not a clear LA!

1) Never played a relay here but after 1 - 1 - 2, 2M is GF semi-natural (and FG hands having gone through 1 are similar to Frances's above) 1 - 1, 2 plus are all artificial

2) 1 - 1R - 1M has a variety of options in it, not just a wkNT 2-3M, but:
a) 1: asks partner to bid 1N if they hold a wkNT, then 2 is 45 upto invite, 2 is the walsh hand, 2: to play
b) 2: asks what hand type partner has, similar to XYZ, but we can't play in 2 (hence a))
c) 2: art FG

3a) Never played a relay after 1 - 1N, but as 1 is always unbal. 2N is strong single suited with diamonds

3b) 1 - 2 we play Kokish (2 includes FG raises as 1 - 2 is 5+4+ 4-9):
2: 5+, may have 4cM
2: 1444 or 4441 any
2: 4 any strength
2N: single suited diamonds, thinks it's right to declare NT
3: 55 minimum
3: suit setting
3M: splinter, 55 extras

If I could invite and show diamonds I would consider it but only vuln.

If I have to invite by bidding 2N, I would rather throw up (i.e. pass) at all vuln. maybe FG if losing the match and vuln.

If I could have invited by being able to play in 2 (1N - 2 - 2 - 2) certainly would vuln. still pass NV
