Pd knows about the heart split?

It's tough here. In hearts, i may be able to pitch spade losers on pd's clubs, but I may suffer a club ruff or go down on a bad heart break. I could see an argument either way.

No. We think south is crazy to bid keycard on this auction.
But the hand with more than half the controls in the deck, four-card support for partner's opening bid and shortness in the preemptors suit would be the one to move past game.

You have qxx in two suits and no shortness. Nothing says you belong beyond 4

Some might play 2H as nf or 5-5 in this auction using 2D as nmf

But the hand speaks for itself. It looks like 2D is just a convenient forcing bid looking for 3-card spade support

2D is natural?

I'm sorry, but south has a, aq in pd's suits and a side stick. This is one of the most working 17 counts opposite an opener I've ever seen. 1C followed by 2C has some leeway of values. It's true N could have done more, but south has to take most of the blame

sorry, I misthought out the hand and thought you could endplay east into a ruff and sluff, but east can just exit trump

Sadly, clubs block so you can't really screw this up

I guess technically yes. But it's not a good game - even at imps. But my pd sees the colors. My pd also gets a chance to bid the slim game. I show great strength by doubling and raising to the 3-level opposite a passed hand that didn't jump.

No like it but don't understand it option?

I don't like 1S followed by 2S - but there's no UI problem unless you took a long time for 2S. I can't imagine passing 3H with the south hand

This - and where is pd's third keycard?
The A seriously improves the contract

Paul, would I have bid the slam without the 8?

Very nice. I thought the squeeze didn't operate if east ducked two clubs. But J9 tight of spades saves the day

2 4 0 7 with four dead hearts and a good d suit is an easy 3D opener
