If your partnership wants to have 2 have potential of only 2 hearts, now responder has 1 more bid - 2.

Long ago it was singletons including A K Q for flying fur.
Aging players don't have as much fur.
You could get some scrawny tufts here, but I wouldn't call it illegal per se.

Whenever partner makes a 4sf bid (2 here) he/she should roll call my responses.
2 = 3 hearts or default.
2 = 5 spades or default.
2N = dia stopper or default.
3 = 5 clubs or default.

1 of my bids has to be able to say I don't have a good answer.

The awkwardness of 4sf when it comes up and hasn't been discussed.
Shouldn't it have been discussed that one of our next bids over 2 means I heard your force but I'm just not saying anything right now.
If that was 2, now partner has the max space available to make forcing calls: 2, 2N, 3, 3. 3, 3, 4, 4.

I'd rather have a diamond honor. The one I've got does a lot of cursing. I hope partner just bids 3N and I get at least 6 tricks whether I deserve them or not.

Or maybe we get to 5.

That was 1 of my early thoughts.
Then I thought about more thoughtful things e could do than bid 3 over 2 to help with bidding decisions or defense.

Simple game? Sometimes.
Sometimes more than a signaller and a puppet.

Maybe hindsight…
You're not really getting anything for defending 2 or 3 undoubled down 2.

If e bids 2N over 2 maybe partner will infer diamonds.

Partner bid when he could have passed so he wanted to show something. It's not really right for him to bid 2N even with a club stopper. There are only 2 jacks left for him to have in the majors. Partner should be happy to have 3 available now if he has a 4+ card major. If this belongs in 3N, I don't like any other way to get there.

If partner takes out my t/o double and goes minus, I won't like it if we were going plus vs 3 spades.

I hope that means partner's 2 is not waiting.
I"m still bidding 2N and hoping.

I might never believe that somebody would intend 2 as waiting.

Very good about LTT.
There could be many tempi issues along the way here.
Including many actions done in 0-5 secs so that somebody taking 6+ secs looks like they're having a bit.

Walk the dog.
So many never get it.
One time it was partner.
He only had 8 points. Ya. 2 aces.
My fault for not bidding 4N.

Thanks Benoit.

I've found your comments and so many things about this poll so useful.

Udca. E played 5 at trick 1. And declarer even accommodated with the 2. E played 3 on the club ace. I like E 99.44% guilty rather than 100%.

I plan on going into the auction later.
I think E bidding 2N over 2 is interesting.
