I think an alternative to PASS is 3NT. If you dont have Pass in your bidding box then 3nt has more potential.. Your pd didnt bid because he has a bad hand or a good one with 2-3 clubs but not good enough to bid. If its the 1st and you bid you are badly placed whatever he bids. if its the 2nd, then he ll propably bid a major and you are going down. even if he bids 3nt you are in the same contract as before and you have the bad hand playing it.

I think 4 creates a forcing pass situtation, isn't it?

It looks like 5-5 or 4-6 with 10+ HCP or less distribution more points

I think we should move on because we are not minimum for our bids so far, we have good controls and we have the best possible holding in pd's short suit.
Now should we que or RKC?
I think ace asking is better because we have control in all suits and dont want to complicate the bidding with 4NT since pd with xx-AQxxx-x-Axxxx will be afraid of Club loser +the D ace.(im guesssing the 4NT bidders after 5C que they bid 5H)
We can stop at 5 if 1 ace or 2 with no Q (meaning no 5 trumps also)

He knows his partner is in the range of 15-17 hcp so some KQs will be missing. Yes the K of spades win whenever dummy has 2 and 1 and they dont have 5-4 trumps so he can discard the or in . On the other hand the A wins whenever there is a trump trick coming or a ruff or overuff or promotion in trumps JTx is enough.

I think that the main reason this contract is going down is because of bad trump break or club ruff. You are taking advantage of this with the A of clubs lead. The King of spades is something they knew was missing before bidding 6…

Since there is no option in poll about the 3 bid we have to believe its acceptable, so i pass.

I use 3 as 5-5 minor weak thought standard but didnt see anyone use it. If in your system super accept is 3 over 2nt then i would bid that.

Director asked the wrong questions IMO, the simple question is Why did you bid 3 ? since you have fit for pard? Usually when this happens to a good player he raises to the proper level and awaits negative developments, but atleast noone can blame him for cheating…

So if it went 1NT-2(no alert)-pass-2(no alert) X he has to either pass or support His 3 bid is clearly made by using UI obtained by the alert. If you appeal you definetely have point and deserve a different score, what that would be depends on your cards + a 3 imp penalty to opps for misalerting :)
