I thought I had clicked 2 Hearts and when I saw the results I thought who could possibly have chosen 3 Hearts. Checked the public votes and lo and behold it was I. I hate misclicks especially on BBO!

High risk pass but values well placed.

I would consider a new suit by an unpassed hand to be forcing. Anticipating a rebid of 3 Diamonds I plan to bid 4 spades.

Interesting, Mike, how do you find yourselves in 3 Spades? At our table - 1800 miles away - it 1hl:P:2H:P:4H:All Pass making 4. I don't understand a forcing No Trump with Bradley's hand. I suppose they may play constructive but 2 hearts still seems correct. Did you bid 3Ds and partner pull it? If so I wonder if you should pul that to 4Cs?

I'm looking at that 4 Heart and wondered who did that and why? I could have looked to see as you did, Mike. :)

Not going to be deterred from showing my 8 card suit. Who was it that said he would never table a dummy with an 8 card suit. I chose 4 Clubs but I know I am going to bid 5??

I did not type “unbidden” - auto-correct made that decision for me. I hate that.

I played this hand in Florida yesterday, I bid 1 heart instead of the unusual NT. My partner and I had discussed the two lower unbidden suits but not mini-maxi. With a hand in the 12-15 range I chose to bid 1 heart to be followed by diamonds if possible. We played 3 hearts after partner took a preference for the 5-2 rather than the possible 4-3 fit. The bidding had gone P:P:1C:1H:3C:P:P:3D:P:3H:All Pass. I suggested to partner that I Probably had 5 diamonds and limited opening count. We will play it that way in the future. Plus 140 was a near top - one pair was allowed to make 4 spades.

I added a comment with my vote which did not appear. None of your options work for me. Control of opps suit is the question but 2nd round control is acceptable response. I really should have abstained but I wanted to get in the discussion as this is not uncommon.

100% agree with Larry's comment.

What actually happened, Michael, according to Mike S. was that his partner jumped to 4 spades. I voted for a max of 2 spades but feel that he should have doubled initially. Had he done so they would get to an appropriate partial where they belong.

I just checked The Common Game and note that you and Paul were in 4 Spades going down one trick. When I play with you in the Tuesday game you sit East so I will assume you did so yesterday. If so it was Paul who passed with this shapeless 14. For you to get to 4 Spades he would have to have jumped to 3 Spades. Had he shown his values with a T/O double over 1 Heart this probably wouldn't have happened.

I think you know that I agree with Jack. I would not pass one heart. Having done so a free bid of 2 Spades is about all I feel I can justify after partner's balancing double.

Checked the board on the Common Game. Hope it wasn't you who chose to bid 5 Diamonds. I am assuming that you were the 1 Diamond opener. East might better have bid 4 Diamonds over 1 spade but if the hand was bid a 2nd time it's shameful. :)

Mike, I just visited the Common Game site to see what actually happened on the board. Your partner holding K8753 T4 AK93 63 Has an excellent save opportunity over 4s if bid after a negative double here. 4s is the winning contract if allowed to play.
