What a terrible problem –You need a crystal ball to figure out which suit to bid but I agree with David. This is a 1 bid hand only and the spots look so much BIGGER in print LOL

I agree with Ken that Norths 4 bid took up a lot of room but what did south think North opened on and jumped? he must be holding some kind of control.

Ok David and Peggy: sorry, I didn't realize it was inappropriate to ask after the hand what they would have done – my bad!!

“at which point E quickly asked to stop speculating on auctions that did not happen”

I think that was a rude comment to make to you especially if the inflection of it was snide or superior sounding.

Craig: Do you really think the opponents would have sat for 1 doubled? you didn't think this all the way through.

With no real clues to go on, Table feel comes into play I think –its too bad if you don't have table feel!! one reason not to have computer bridge - no table feel!! its part of the game!!

Ok, so Im thinking since I have already made a takeout dble why couldn't on this particular auction my double be a support dbl rather than a penalty double?

Gary as you know: Barry Crane was such a wonderful player he made bridge fun at a much higher level for everyone except maybe his partners who he could be tough on.
His tantrums were legendary. I was playing with Hermine Baron in a regional in Pasadena, CA and we started with Kerri Sanborn (then Shuman) and Barry on the 1st round except when Barry finally showed up just before the start of the game he refused to start against Hermine and me. Barry and Hermine used to be bridge partners and Hermine had won a McKinney now the Barry Crane Top 500 with the help of Barry but went on to win another Top 500 without Barry's blessing to put it mildly. Barry had told her not to go for it because he wanted to win it. They never played again even though Hermine tried talking to Barry to explain her going for the trophy that year. Barry refused to even discuss it and they never spoke again.
After refusing to play against us the Director moved Hermine and I to another section even though Hermine was stationary and in a wheel chair!! That was the power of Barry. I doubt that would happen today but the power of Barry was unbelievable.

If 7NT is badly bid and the lead fits even with a BIT and then an appeal was submit, you could still acquit even with the BIT!! Lol

Just had a sudden thought –why not Move the ACBL Headquarters to Las Vegas - build a playing site and hold all 3 Nationals in Vegas - can even include a hotel which all 20 ACBL Board members are not allowed to stay at –they can rough it off site. No negotiations with that atrocious PEAK travel agency needed anymore. Us crafty ACBL members can make our own sweet deals with the hotel we want to stay at. Can bring the kids to Vegas which has plenty of amusements for them. We can spend our savings playing slots and playing mindless games like Bingo and BlackJack to keep our minds zeroed in on counting and numbers in between sessions or on extended break times!! You can even have a smoking and non-smoking section if you can find it through the cloud of smoke.
There are plenty of good reasonable eating places with Specials for breakfast for $4.99 not $24.99!! I think I'm hungry and ready for one of those Vegas Buffets where I don't mind spending my money.
Wow, I think I'm making my reservations immediately!! Won't you join me?
See you in Vegas everyone!!

Maybe if you were about to play against them you could just pretend your sick and couldn't play that round. You don't have to be a good actor to pull that off –
