Agree. What do you bid after it goes 3C by West and 3S by North?

I apologize. I posted the problem as East bidding. East passes and the question was what do you bid as South?

Partner's hand is 9875-A3-K103-KQJ3 makes 3S with the Ace of clubs on side for a ruffing finesse. Spades split 4/1 with KQJX behind the spade ace. With a void in partner's first suit (clubs) and only two aces as the only face cards it seems that 2S might often be the right bid.

What should partner do holding A982-K108-KJ42-AK?

With 3 potential losers in heart, one in diamonds and possibly one in spades, what would you do?

Very good preempt plus heart void. Lack of heart bid by opponents indicates partner must surely be short in clubs, maybe 4-3-4(5)-1(2). Could easily make game maybe slam.

A bid of 3C lets partner properly evaluate his hand. He knows not to bid beyond 4S.

Again why not bid 3C. It has to be a spade raise with values in clubs

It goes pass-pass 5D. Now what?? If west has the heart ace you are cold for 5S. With East holding the AK of clubs you can't even make 4S. A bid of 3C(bid where you live) would turn East off.

After North bids 4D over your 3H bid what is East to do withKQ109XXXKJ109XKVOID???

Why not 3C. That's “where you live”. I was kibitizing Bobby Wolfe and Morris Chang (sorry if people don't know who Morris was) once and after the hand was over Bobby told Morris that he should bid where he lives. Bobby said that he could then judge whether to bid on or defend. I never forgot that.

I would love to have you double me on that basis. Recently a guy holding an Ace and the KQ of trump behind me doubled me at the five level. He took his Ace and setback for what he thought would be two trump tricks. It was almost child's play to reduce my trumps down to the AJ10, correctly reading the distribution in the side suits. The expression on his face was priceless when he realized what had happened.

Not at all. We don't know what happened at the other tables. The real question is absent any action by West, would you double with the East hand against probably the top pair in the room. On the N-S bidding this hand rates to make 4H most of the time.

We don't know whether any other pair may have been in 4H doubled or not. One pair played 4NT making six. Several pairs were in 5 or 6 diamonds going down 2 or 3. We don't know how they arrived at these contracts maybe they got doubled and pulled to 4NT and/or 5-6 diamonds. See Ribs comment for another set of bids to get to 3C down two. After the bidding and the double would you pull to 4NT? Would have been a winning action???

Clearly South should have opened either 1H or 2H.

I don't think that is the case here. East mentioned that some players in this club were opening all kinds of untypical weak two bids, so that is why the ask. I still believe if you have nothing to say why are you asking? I f your partner has a good hand they can ask.
