I don't think the system is on here, and I also don't think partner will bid 3NT over 3 if he has a 4-card major. So 3 gives me good information now, and if partner bids 3NT, I'll continue with 4.

I'm very saddened to hear of Beth's passing. It was an honor to have known her. RIP.

It's funny how people that have been playing bridge 20+ years cant agree on a simple thing like this

I'll admit I'm not sure whether the pass is forcing here. If it's not, this is a 100% clear pass. If it is, I'm inclined to double.

I tend to think the pass is forcing. Opposite a passing responder, opener will almost always sell out to whatever they land in, especially vulnerable. So, the double is to make sure that doesn't happen.

What can responder have for the pass? With five spades, for clubs or three hearts, pass seems unlikely. So it's quite likely that partner had four diamonds and three clubs. He night also be 5-2. In all these cases defending seems much more attractive than bidding to 3s, especially with my fast red tricks. So I'll double. With a single club or softer major cards, Id bid.

the colors/position/scoring are all wrong for a risky, marginal action

As of now the votes are 16-16 for the two possible actions.

Partner had x AQxxxx ATx AKJ, so the right action depended on how the suits were breaking in their hands.

At the table I balanced and it was wrong; LHO had a 4414 22-count and I can only assume RHO must have had two or three spades in with his clubs the first time ;)

A diamond would have been permitted if the hesitation had been followed by a double.

I can't believe three of the original six polled thought that the hesitation did not suggest a diamond.

I’d have expected him to double with an Ace

IMO passive lead usually better against auctions where both hands are likely to be balanced

A funny plot twist would be to find out I held this hand in the GNT and doubled anyway
