Depends on whether partner is playing you for most of what you have. Here I want to try for game for sure.

Had a very similar hand recently and bid 4, 3 is clearly taking advantage. U would impose a 3 contract on them.

|The opener had AKxxx ? What did your partner have? A spade void and what?

It may not have been tested in a criminal court but when cheating happens and prize money is involved is this not a criminal offence? Richard is correct there was a case involving a solicitor in England some years and he lost both his reputation and legal practice. From memory this case involved master point certificates and there was some debate about whether they had monetary value.

They may do but nothing I bid now will alter but lets say a 1 response and a raise to 2 dbl will be fine.

Does anyone think 4 did not do this hand justice?

Since 5 is clear bidding 5 can only help send a message of interest. Cannot see your poor benighted partner figuring a pass is forcing.

Systems all have weak areas, I mention earlier opposite a passed partner I might try opening 2nt. !NT does not do justice to this hand.

I so dislike starting 2 2 3 that leaves me no option other than 1. You can easily imagine a hand opposite with kxxx xx xxx kxxx or similar where you get to 3nt after a 2nt opening that i gives you a chance to avoid.

If you want to bid then 1 is best but this might get easier next time,

I think that is whatever the individual finds easier. I use vertical.

Well I start with getting students to think in terms of rank first.
Second the hand pattern. Thirdly Honor cards including tens. A simple exercise is to ask students to sort the hand then put it down and call the shape. After this try it with honor cards. Sequences are very easy to remember. J D R Collins had a drill for his team mates ten seconds to look at the hand and then bid it and play it without looking.

Not any type of blackwood surely. For me is a slam try in diamonds and also shows one reason why 1 should show at least a four card suit.
