In the Dutch open championship, one pair went 8 down in 3 doubled for -2000. That was still good enough to win some IMPS when teammates bid and made 7NT.

Partner can bid 4 to show club control, no need to go past 4.

Pass, partner clearly denies club control.

Depends whether you agreed to lead high or low from small doubleton.

A great example why double must be extras and not penalty.

the only way this makes sense is that partner has 7 or 8 hearts to the jack and some side card. If he has 0643 or similar he would be 4NT as Richard suggested.

Pass or 3NT depending on who my opponents are.

Let's hope they will not double us.

I would lead a low heart at IMPS, at MP I feel it is too speculative and might easily blow a trick.

I would get to 3NT from South. 2S (9-12 6+ cards) -3NT

I dont think partner can figure out that the first hand is more useful than the second. (he may reasonably regard the hard queen as a bigger card than spade queen).

At my local club, beginners are taught a simple 5 card major system. After 2 lessons they are encouraged to join an open game where they face anything from fellow beginners to (close to) world class competition. While obviously at start there are a lot of bidding accidents and freaky results (like forgetting stayman or transfers or passing a 2 opener) usually people catsch up fairly quickly.

Natural with 2NT general try.

No and obviously pass is the only sensible bid. However if I had to choose a call other than pass it would be double.

If I was forced to bid I would double, 2 is just horrible.

going to the 3 level with combined half the deck in what would often be an 8 card fit doesnt seem very appealing.

If they make 7 it is simply not your day.

I think you could work out that they are 5305 as they always lead their longest suit. Not so easy to decide if they had J10x or J8x though….

I bid 5 now, but passing 3 with 5 card support is a bid I would not have considered.

Agree with Richard, however having bid 2, passing 4 is quite clear.
