In your opinion what would be a minimum hand that would qualify for a free 3 rebid from partner?

@ Phil Clayton:
We, in both teams, have a nice friendly relation.
More, no one cares too much about who wins.
That said, I was not risking our victory and it occurred to me I could make some kind of a bluff here. That's it.

My idea was starting with an underbid and then profit from the doubled overtrick(s)
Maybe that's too naive

What do you mean when you say “but then I was raise on K-S :)”?

Thanks a lot for your post, which explained it all.

Seven hours ago, in response to Andy Bowles, I admited I had it all wrong, so I'm gonna say it again, so there is no doubt about it: the english language isnt my native language and I mistakenly interchanged meanings.
What I meant was: my double, partner, means I want to compete further/save, and in my poor use of english I said “defend”.
The following is not an excuse, but in my native language when we say, for example, i dont want them to play in 4 hearts, i'm gonna defend, I'm saying I want our side to declare 4 spades, for example.
Of course now I clearly understand that when you read “defend” you thought I wanted to let the opponents declare.
I'm really sorry for the troubles I caused.

Andy, I totally agree with you: when I said I want to defend I meant I want to save in 5
English isnt my first language :), sorry

“To me this already sounds like gibberish, abracadabra”.
If you are unable to understand what I wrote, what else can I do?
Yes, when West doubles the agreement I refer to means exactly what I said above: partner, whith my double I'm saying I want to DEFEND: if you agree, pls remove my double and bid 5 .
I understand this agreement may seem foolish to some, but its just like that.
Its not my fault if people keep misreading and misinterpretating what I write.
Isnt that clear enough for you?

NOTE: I edited because there was a typo, now fixed

“2♠ may already have been GF”: as I said above, 2 was an invitational bid

Paul: I did intend to say to partner: “I want to defend”

Ed: i'm not sure if you are aware that in the West seat was Klukowski and in the East seat was Gawrys
From what I know from their methods (polish club) the 2 bid means a hand with an invitational fit

Here (i mean in Portugal, Europe) 1-3 in a major is a Bergen raise - 4 trumps, 0-6 HCP

Let's suppose partner has one king less (Kxxx xx xxx xxxx): in that case defending in 4 (minus 2 doubled) would still be better than having opponents scoring a vulnerable game

“With 3-5-1-4, he would bid 3S, saying he'd raise a 2S opening to 3 but a 2H opening to at least 4”
Hank: you are neglecting the fact that EW are playing a version that includes a possible strong minor, so they cant possibly preempt partner
