N did not bid 4. Backpedaling after the agressivish 3 bid?
I guess the question is whether S should bid 4 now or is 4 enough?

Apologies. I missed a bid in the sequence so none of this makes any sense.

Stu, having gold rush has an enormous effect.

While I wouldn't criticize 3 in a not tempo sensitive auction, it is far from clear. Assuming a poll establishes that pass is a logical alternative, the contract should be adjusted back to 2S (IMHO down 1)

Ian, if you bid 2 natural, and your partner responded 2, wouldn't you bid a lot of hearts?

e/w certainly should reach 4 on this auction - either directly over 2, or a raise of 2 to 4. N/S +100 based on their defense of the actual hand

since it's a double dummy analysis, seeing the other two hands might help….

Sorry I disagree. No novice should ever claim against assholes.

I agree you should be barred here. Given the ruling, 4NT is the bid least likely to be taking advantage of UI (partner can't have 20+ HCP, partner may have thrown in a desperate bid to not bar you), but I would just make my normal bid here and accept any ruling against me without complaint. I think at the table in a non UI situation I would pass, but certainly would contemplate bidding on.

I would suggest that a director monitor the table any time these two pairs face each other. And no recess for either team until they grow up.

Not as bad as not preparing for Blackwood responses before hauling out 4NT, but still…..

My email to Bahar: IMHO you were the shining light the ACBL needed to get it head out of it's ass and remain a viable organisation. I'm sorry the idiots on the BOD didn't see things that way. I very much enjoyed talking to you, and really appreciated your willingness to listen. Good luck in your future endeavors.

I suspect those contemplating the correct action here feel as if they have been hoisted on their own petard.

Invitational opposite a maximum 1 bid. Simple agreements for simple folks.
