I abstained as I held the east hand and know what the correct answer is. The correct answer is not the one I chose at the table.

Partner knows I have ♣s.

What does north bid with K854, K952, A5, JTx?

Isn't that also 2N, followed by 3? Stayman with a stopper?

2. We'll probably wind up in 3N and I prefer the lead to come up to partner's majors rather than through them.

Cue bidding a void in partner's suit is seldom productive.

If 2 by North was dictated by system, 100% blame to South.
Otherwise, 95% blame to South and 5% to North.

What does South do if North had bid 4 instead of 4?

Happy to defend 4. We might not even be able to beat 5.

Did the vulnerable opponents just miss a game?

Pass.
I want the club lead coming into the North hand, not through it.
North isn't ruffing anything so no extra spade tricks in a spade contract.
South hand should be worth 6 tricks, and 9 easier than 10.

If you're forcing to 4 anyway, why not show the singleton on the way there?

Because north has already shown heart support.
Are you looking for a grand?

I opted for a 4th best spade. A good partner will oblige with the jack.

Can't believe south bid 2N with this hand. Does south dislike partner?

we may miss game if he has a maximum of around 9 points with 4♠.

Wouldn't west have bid 2 with that?

Had east not bid 4, what would South's call have been if south didn't have 4 spades?

Maybe David doesn't have good partners

Of course I have good partners.

The bad ones are ex-partners.

But he could have more than a minimum or extra shape (AKxxxxx-Ax-x-KJx) and 4♠ will make.

Or he could have more than a minimum or extra shape (AKxxxxx-KJx-x-Ax) and 4♠ will probably not make.

How will east know which hand west has?
