Sorry. Fit showing jumps not part of our agreements.

I probably should have divided strong into GF and non-forcing…Sorry

Bob, I think this was a great analysis. I debated between passing and bidding 2. In retrospect I like your approach. I bid 2. Partner's hand: KJx 10xx Qxx 8xxx. Opponents can cash 6 clubs vs NT. Spades are QTxx onside, hearts Kx onside, diamonds Kx offside. Computer says 4, 4, & 5 all make. I took 12 tricks in diamonds when LHO pitched a spade, +170 was a top at club. Out of 1046 plays in Common Game, +170 was 90%. surprisingly there were no scores of +150.

I believe there should be a penalty (suspend flagging capability?) for frivolous flagging as there is in bridge for frivolous appeals.

3NT. Has a chance to make. But, more importantly, don't want them to find 9-card heart suit.

4NT. Over partner's minor bid, 5, letting partner know I'm interested in more.

Do you really want to take the chance pard will pass 4? How about 3 then 5 exclusion BW over partner's 3NT, 4 or 4 bid. If partner shows none, pass his 5 bid. If partner shows 1, bid 6.

I admire your chutzpah. But if 3NT is the right spot, isn't partner likely to bid it over double?

Also harder for partner (missing our 4-4 spade fit)

I'm a little surprised by the results. I was expecting a bit more support for pass.

Weak field, some merit to what you say. Strong field, act now.

If you have that agreement about 4nt, fine. Not sure many partnerships do. Would have to have that discussion first. Plus you are leaving room for a 5 bid by LHO inviting the grand.

Not really. They are almost certain to make 6 and they are odds on for 7. 7 should be a good sack against even 1370. So if they double 6, it's a bonus.

My partner, a good B player, didn't think it was automatic. I had passed with x, Kxxxxx, x, Axxxx. RHO bid 3S, I bid 6C which I thought reasonable at favorable vul knowing they had 9-10 spades. Clubs were 3-1, it was not pretty.
