Why have I passed twice with half the HCP in the deck?

Because abstain doesn't indicate why you're abstaining. Perhaps OP wants to know who is abstaining due to disapproval of the previous bidding as opposed to those who are abstaining for other reasons.

I have no spades and East doesn't have enough to support. So partner is marked with them.

Invite conservatively. Accept aggressively.

East has 6 losers. West has less than a limit raise. It's doubtful West can cover 3 of the losers. Pass for me.

So if it's the 3 you'd open? :)

Ugly problem to be sure. I'm a 4N bidder and I'll bid the slam if partner has both the ace of diamonds and queen of spades. I realize that we could be on a 4-3 spade fit.

1N right sides NT for the diamond suit, but wrong sides it for the majors. If the bidding goes 1N - 3N, guess what is more likely to be led.

You need to define what the transfer into the enemy suit means

The “enemy suit” is 1 No Trump. Not sure what you mean here.

i'd be happier playing 6 -1 then 5 +1 in this deal.

I'm sure your teammates will be overjoyed too.

That's North's hand? What's wrong with 3 instead of 3N?

Partner has they type of hand that was not interested in more than game except with fit.

South has shown a preference to 4 over 3N. The level of fit is undetermined. With a real good fit, South could have super-accepted.

I don't think I've ever seen a bad 22.

If you play NLM, you have to decide between 3N and 5.

The rejection of clubs by North means partner could have some club tricks. And with my hand over the NT bidder, I've got defense. I wouldn't be surprised to see this go down.

The problem with 4 is that partner will think we're missing the club ace and with a possible spade loser, there's no slam.

Hasn't every partnership discussed how to bid with a relatively balanced 27-count over an opponent's preempt?

I would be torn between honoring one of the greats and using a term which is descriptive.

Then how about Bethe's continuous victory point scale?

Agree with 3 instead of 2N. Then if partner doubles 3, it makes it easier to sit.

if for east would be a lead problem

Not if South bids 3N.
