A diamond was led. If East ruffs and leads a low spade you win the Spade queen. Lead to your diamonds. Discard two clubs. One on the Spade Ace and one on the remaining high diamond.

5-10HCPS is our agreement and is plainly written on the card.

Please explain “lousy bidding”. You comment borders on being offensive.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that west asks always or randomly”. I have played against this West many times and this is the first time that I can ever remember this person asking about a 2H or 2S opening. Nevertheless, South after receiving a diamond lead and the heart Jack covered by the Queen was cold for four hearts doubled. So I am OK with no adjustment on the board.

In the play East covered the heart jack with the queen. Now South was cold for four. All South had to do was win four heart tricks and lead a diamond to the board. East can ruff or not. E-W can only win 3 tricks now. This tells you that it was a suspect double coupled with bad defense and bad declarer play. A troika!!

Since when do you announce “Weak-Two” bid. I never heard of this.

What for. I got the information on the law. It is just a club game.

Thanks Ed. That is what I thought and why I did not accept the 5C bid only to be told that the opponent could bid 6C or pass.

No such thing as an appeal at this club and also you are not allowed to question the director's ruling. The 5S card was on the table before either my partner or I could say anything, not just removed from the bid box. Six clubs doubled would have been down 2 or 3 depending on the defense went. Five Spades would be down two. Down two doubled would have been a tie for top.

That is what I thought. That the 5S bid should have been in force. I would have doubled that.

I discussed the incident later with on of the opponents and he apologized, saying they were wrong. Apology accepted.

Some people think when you call the director in this kind of situation that you are making it unpleasant for others. I was afraid that the opponents would create a scene and being a club game, that it was not worth the risk. Knowing the opponents, I think I was correct.
