Only problem is partner remembering even when it is written on his card. I always go over my card before I start a session, paying particular attention to the more esoteric bids that seldom come up. I don't remember missing a bid in the last six months. Zeke Jabbour said that reading his card over before he started a session saved him more match points then any other action.

Three diamonds is not undisciplined (“middle of the road”). Actual results on the hand were:nine @ 3N-1, one @ 6D-1, three @ 5D making, one @ 4D making five, two @ 3NT making. The North hand was JXX-XX-AJ1098XX-X. IF partner bid 5C(two with the Q) over 4C, I would want to be in six.

4C is the bid I would have made. I learned this bid a long time ago. I seems that not many people are conversant with 4C Special Keycard. Maybe because it rarely comes up, maybe once every 6 mos. I can't fathom bidding 3NT.

Would like to see some comments from those who bid 3NT.

Interesting. My purpose in putting this on Bridge Winners was to see if most people still use 4NT as takeout and double as penalty oriented. Also does 4NT require a tolerance for hearts?

Dave I agree, but think I should have still bid 6D over 6C. That could be wrong if partner was 3-2-2-6, but that's why pre-empts work.

Excellent comment. My partner bid 6C at the table and I failed the test by passing.

What do you do if partner bids 6C WITH THE South Cards?

People get confused even after playing a convention for 6 months. The mis-bid was not the primary reason for the E-W disaster. It was East's mistaken idea that she wouldn't get doubled in the face of strong bidding by the opponents. Sometimes they get lucky and it makes but more often they go down. I learned long ago that you have to double or people will steal you blind. In the club I am known for my killer doubles and people tread lightly.

John, I gave the reference the notes used: 1m (X) Transfer by Robert S. Todd. In this case is a normal 2C bid and 3D would confirm a solid 10+ points. The hand obviously belonging to N-S from North's perspective.

North assumed that N-S could make either 4C or 4D based on the bidding and South would know what to do.

There is no agreement other than standard bidding after 1(m) 1M)!!!

Yes N-S can provide documentation on their agreement. They follow 1m (x) Transfer by Robert S. Todd and South had a copy at the game and had reviewed it before the game (alas was still confused-happens as you get older)
