Who says he was hitting on her? You re making assumptions and nasty ones at that.

Patrick you clearly play a different game to mine if you think that everytime you make a jump this is an invitation for a sacrifice. For me a jump shows a certain hand type and depending on vul a decent suit. Do you want to pass here? Note that your rho opened 2C and has not mentioned any suit yet. The possession of qxx in spades is actually a positive as opener may well miscalculated. Not that we would have screwed the opponents had north not over reacted.

Nigel, so often is “Its matchpoints” used as an excuse for poor bridge.

Did the 2 bidder alert that his 2 openings can be lighter than expected? I would bet not.

“At these colors and with that hand, I'd expect 5S to make. Since I'm going to bid 6D over 5S anyway.” You have an Ace. Who says pd does not have the Ace of Ds to stand up, or if not the DA another trick somewhere? Taking the last guess by 5 followed by 6 is the worst of all actions.

Quote Andy: “they would not be required to alert anything,” I think they would be required to alert 3. Can this be a minimum, does it show extra values?

I totally disagree with Nigel. You are looking at the A. You are making the opponents guess 5 may be right, 6 may be right. Bidding 6 is poor bridge.

Agreed. North bid 6, north gets the blame.

Even with 6, this is a dreadful splinter. I would never bid this way with this hand.

“Naturally, my partner had no clue what my 3C bid was after I refused” his transfer to hearts.”
Does not everyone play this as a super accept for with some feature? For me a small doubleton in C,for others a source of tricks in , 4 good hearts and a max.

“I just want to play Bridge, not ”who can kick up the biggest stink“. ” Totally agree, after all 2S a minor is hardly difficult to defend against.

I am amazed that E-W did not know the opps were playing Precision. Did they not look at the system card beforehand?

Steve, by definition this is a reverse. As has been pointed out, partner may have to give preference at the 3 level.

The problem is that David Stevenson makes up his own interpretations of the law which have little to do with the intent of the law.
