I had the pleasure of competing against Jeffrey and Steve in a small club game in Delray Beach FL a few weeks ago. They won handily and I asked in Butch and Sundance fashion, “Who are those guys?” Anyone in the bridge who didn't know them before know them now. Congratulations on a most impressive week in the Vanderbilt, Team Wolfson.

Your initial Pass said I don't have 4 hearts you would have bid them over 3 Clubs. Bidding hearts over 3 diamonds doesn't even say Imlike them better than diamonds - it is taking a preference for the Major even though partner probably has 6 Diamonds. It is not a rescue - it is common sense after an incorrect pass at the 3 level over 3 Clubs.

How can you believe this is rescuing when you have clear game-going values in Partner’s 2nd suit when partner has shown extra strength and shape? It is not just reluctant support to bid 4 hearts especially when you have failed to make clear at The the 3 level that you have 4 card support.

Thanks for your thoughts, John. Jerry’s take was that pass was the weakest bid. I felt that 3 hearts was the the equivalent of 1-2-3 stop - a blocking bid. Obviously, there was no agreement. BTW The hand makes 4 on a diamond lead on 23 HCPS.

I tried to delete the Post as the original asked what WEST should bid. BridgeWinners didn't seem to provide me with an option to delete so I just fixed it. The whole poll is skewed because of my publishing erroneously. Sorry to all! My interest was in what you think North should bid over two spades.

Someone said they asked a renowned professional if 4 Diamonds meant bid better major and that the professional said no. I did not believe that and did this poll as a test. I absolutely agree - it should be unanimous!!! My sister will be appropriately defended. Her bid was totally correct.

I would have doubled after 2 hearts so I abstained. 3 Clubs after partner's reopening seems basic.

My vote is based on 2 Clubs being game forcing.

And the “extra” extra will be made clear after partner’s response to the one round force!

John, would you ever consider PASS as an option? My partner did and I was surprised. I felt that 3 Diamonds showed extra and was one round force.
