Ah well most seem to eliminate the minors then A and hook the J when west follows.

Sorry if it wasn't very challenging but it was bid 10/16 times when played and only made three times in a reasonable standard field.

2SX was a make 5D was as well

2H was somewhat outside of agreements even for this vulnerability
Yuan and others comments on 3H are quite valid I think

Was interested to see the answers and yes I know this hand is better than many Axx Axx Axx xxxx hands. This was the top of the list of these I felt. The story?……. well it all turned out well despite the fact I got stick from my team captain/mates/most of the room for not opening….. I passed p-p-1S-X-XX-2C-P-P-X-PPP for +1100 they say you cant argue with success but bridge players are a breed of their own.

sorry for the delay in replying to the dicsussion 1S was in fact a run from the 1Hx pass and met with four card support. Pass was the bid chosen at the table and it did not play well in 5-1 fit with a 6-1 break. 2H was making by EW I believe.

Double was the bid at the table….. East plays a lot of rubber bridge and I imaging north has as well and was expecting East to pass….. It continued here…..

Ok so the real point of this question is that East asked a question of the 1C bid as it was not a “standard” method, then passed and passed on the second occasion in tempo….how may would bid 2S now?

FWIW the East hand was

North-South are what you would call “agricultural in their methods” Perhaps they had seen the oppo coming :-)
