I agree that this is a variant of the excess winner squeeze.

This my favorite Steve story. We were playing against his team in the Grand National Regional Districts against his teammates. Our teammates came to the table and asked us to play against Steve and his partner. Steve asked why we switched, and I told him that one of our teammates thought he was an a..hole. Steve replied that we had a very perceptive teammate.

After the 2 diamond call, I would bid 3 diamonds as a help suit game try. This would certainly help lead to a better cooperative decision.

You are in a most untenable situation now. Unless partner has a rock solid four diamond call, you will either see the opponents pushed into a four spade game making, or the score will be rolled back to 3 spades.

Ruth's record was for the most consecutive scoreless innings in World Series play. It was Whitey Ford who broke it.\

Playing Helo in this situation, 2 shows heart raise with spades. Sounds right for this hand.

It is the responsibility of the person short in hearts to act. Maybe not without taking a tranquilizer on this hand.

How ironic, there is an ad on the site for a Disney credit card as I am reading this thread.

No. Jonathan Steinberg has done a very good job enumerating the problems which were ACBL related. The actual site is wonderful for an ACBL.

For all of the reasons stated above, Toronto is exactly the opposite, except of course the housing Snafus.

This was somewhat unlucky for you. We did not have a weak 2 diamond available, so I had to bid 3 diamonds or pass. 3 diamonds it was.
