Some players make mistakes in the bidding others do during the play of the hand and others in scoring.

Looks like 5 clubs will be a decent contract with min hand and singleton Heart.

2NT is saying per agreement that you have 5-(3-3-2) and not a very bad hand (11-12 HCP).
range is 13-16 HCP

My previous partner used to say that some people make errors in the bidding and some do in the play, other on writing :)

This problem is posted after an argument about how winning or losing is to SA with 3c fit 17 hcp and 4-4-3-2 or 5-3-3-2 distribution without Q orJ in the doubleton and two honours in the major. After a very short sample of examined hands i noticed that the advantages of SA are that you reach some games that you wouldnt and you are better off in some slammish hands.( your method of SA distinguish the specific hand type). On the other hand you push to the three level when you shouldnt. I think its closer than the voting result show. Also with so many parameters its rare to make a difference.

The truth is that i would bid 3 but now i have to make a decision. If opps are not crazy but aggressive then they have a reason to believe they have game. that means either a big fit or HCP so if we give Pd 10+ for his Dbl that means not much HCP for opener to have a big balanced hand. So he must have a 6 card suit and a decent opening. partner maybe doubled light in view of his void and 9 tricks a possibility for them if we alert them furthermore with double. I m not sure what i would do i would propably bid 4d and wish pd is 4-v-(5-4). I think -1 and make is same in percentages here and if they make i get a bottom if -1 i may make 4 so not great score either.Maybe the field bid 4 immediatly and dbl always bad.

If my pd is not sure if 6 is making then my 4 is a sign that it is making. I dont like going for a number in money games but looks profitable to take the save.

I think im gonna bid the slam. I would also bid 3nt instead of transfer and would have missed the 3 XX.

I believe the reason for this poll is that at the table Norths second Double wasnt in tempo and South departed is that what happened?

All the hands are 20+ balanced or not so it strikes me as reasonable that 3 here mean pd that is not enough with a K or better you could bid something like 4/ or 3nt with stopper or 4 with long .
My point of view is that since we believe pd is weaker than that there are many scenarios to what will happen in the other tables.
Some will play 4 ,other a number of and some 2nt or 3.
When 4 is making you get the top i get the second best. when 4 not making i get a top you get a very bad score.

My pd will get his bad result by being dummy, yours will also have to play the hand after the Double…

Passing almost guarantees 140 in our column that beats everyone playing in , would you open this one 2 if no weak opening? Pd is limited i think to less than a king so if your style is not to open 2 then you might have played only 1 or if reopening and you bid 2sp then pd is passing with less than a king anyway so you dont actually miss something here by passing.
I have passed in the same situation with 23 recently and got a decent result also.
