3D is GF. So 3S is GF

I'm not sure I want to be in slam. I voted for no blam, even if East could (should?) have doubled.

So Partner is short in spades and couldn't act… Pass is obvious IMHO. They may have missed 4.

I believe that if Partner has none of A, K or T, the heart lead will fail anyway. So hope Partner has one of these and lead 5.

I can't see how South could have bid much, and if the range for 1NT is 15-17, I agree that you can upgrade South's hand to 18.
Now North could have bid 4, for he knows there is a 8+ cards fit in clubs. But that's not obvious, with no Aces and not very good trumps.

Well with that hand, 6 is a reasonable bet. 7 is IMHO an unreasonable one.

I have bought (and read ! :)) both. I have found the first one (leads against NT contract) interesting and quite convincing, and I have to admit it has changed my philosophy about leads. The second one (leads against suit contracts) is less convincing and some of the results obtained puzzled me.

Pass an pray. If 4th hand doubles, then all bid are transfers (Redouble=transfer to Clubs).

Yes I am. Partner is initially a passed hand.

K&R=12.1… Yes I would have opened 1, but now I feel I'm too weak to double. So chicken and pass.

I mean with the idea to make it.

Pass is forcing when you bid voluntarily to the game level, and opponents bid to the 5 level. Here 4 is unclear… So I don't know.

Maybe a real fit in Diamonds ? :)

What about 4 instead of 5?

I do agree, even if I have voted for 4. I believe that most of the time, both contracts are down 1.

It is very rare rhat 4M is not better than 3NT with a 9 cards fit in M. So I prefer to ignore these rare situations and always play 4M. With a 5-3 major fit, that is more complicated…

An hypothetical question : if East have chosen to bid 2, would you pass or propose the spades game (with 3 I presume) with the West's hand?

You are lucky enough to be able to bid 2 natural… which in most systems is not. So just bid it.

I thought the poll results would have been closer… Pass is a real good alternative and can be the winning choice.
