Most players at the club level take little time over their discards because they do not think about what there discards mean. Serious players will often pause to decide which discard to give.

2 neither confirms nor denies five spades. It is legal to play in a 4-3 fit. If East takes a call over 3, I would, it should surely be 3. Richard Fleet has expressed more eloquently than I could my basic feelings on this matter.

Not a 3 opening for me. Would bid 4.

Richard, I would not object to 3 at IMPS. At matchpoints. I’ll go low. Especially since they always bid spades with four. Personally,I would rebid 1NT with 4-3-4-2 or 4-2-4-3 unless concentrated values in spades and diamonds)

I gave most of the blame to West. However, I would not be very critical of the auction. Especially if it were matchpoints.

Indeed, if I share this with my friends sitting EW, I will first have to edit the comments. The player sitting East readily admits that her bidding is weak. But she is an excellent card player.

I think I would pass 3, but I’ve seen a lot worse bids than 3. Having bid, I would raise 3 to 4, but, once again, I’ve seen worse calls than Pass.

I don’t think 3 is forcing.

Way too many really bad bids. I can’t single out one.

Transfer advances is my choice. If I had someone to play them with.

This auction went off the track when West failed to overcall 1NT. No recovery possible.

She held J10976 AJ1054 96 K.

The hand was played 8 times, always by NS. Proves nothing but results were. (We will not mention who the crazy person who jumped to six was.)
