My fault. Inv just means not weak. My 2 bids are not inv.

This doesn't look like that good of a hand to me. If it is, what's this poll for?

Why is a dia lead from 7xxx better than 9 from 9xx?

Needs 3 more hcp? Even stiff q's/j's.

Partner's double is t/o for me.
I want to be declarer if partner has hearts.

Playing 2 inv, then bidding 3 now logically retroactively changes the meaning of 2 to inv+. So how is opener supposed to know which one it is?

The extra offense (LTC 6 - better than opening hand) works on this hand. Once you know you have a fit. Even if a little counter-intuitive. Just have to take some chances sometimes and not defend 4.

Taking the first 6 tricks has an allure.
Or just not conceding the first trick to declater.

I love it. Never leave a double in against you.

Not fun in mtchpts being archaically prophylactic.
It's not about protecting yourself from occasional exceptions. It's about what is % to be okay. So I can't imagine never opening 3.

I don't think NT brings partner in to bid clubs or dias.

I don't find it that useful to use 3 to distinguish between this hand and a yarb since it is 1836 to 1 that I don't have one. My hand is so likely to have these hcp and distribution. Do I want to make it sound like 3 has finally hit the spot? I don't have 4 or a stiff dia. I am happy as hell partner is doing whatever he is doing, but I wish he would bid something to answer that question.

I hate passing.
I also hate getting to bad spots because I've opened.
So sometimes I pass.
This hand just looks like 1 of those.

West reopened.
And it looks like automatic pass of 2.

KISS for me.
No inferential attitude in hearts to show or deny suit pref in clubs.

I played this as not the greatest position to be in.
With passing worse than doubling 2.

I have 1 dia and partner also has shortness?
Still I like my hand.

Okay.

If you're still counting your cards past when everybody else is done, maybe you're taking too long.

I hate disasters from doubles that put them from partscore to game.

Did we lose this match because we were -500 at the other table?

Looks like a good place to attach a hard meaning to pass and double.
