If partner looks the type to regard 4 as forcing, I do pass 3NT.

I'm just describing my hand with 4. If partner then deems it better to go down (possibly doubled) in game rather than play part-score because it's IMPs, we can put it down to a difference in style. One can only lead a horse to water.

KQJxx xx KQxx xx is not everyone's opening bid but 4 is no worse than two three-two breaks. Feels odd to bid only 3 therefore.

Perhaps I expressed that the wrong way. Just meant to seek clarification that the hands definitely happened as reported. There is plenty of apocryphal nonsense knocking around about stars of the past.

Declarer I think he said was Richard Coe, the club gardener.

Howard, if I remember rightly, kibitzed the hand at somewhere like the Eccentric Club. Declarer finessed and went down. I should call him and ask.

Yes, it's one of my favourite hands too. Howard Cohen was the first to show it me.

Think what might have been, if only they paid the game bonus for 4 and 4.

3 is passable, so how can 4 be forcing?

Wasn't it the noblest Roman of them all who said that? Hate to nitpick.

The acid test may come when Fantoni and Nunes apply to play in the EBL event next July, and their lawyers challenge their non-invitation.
