Was this (not) funny enough?
The responder's plan was to pass the hoped-for 3 response. Catching 5 spades was a lucky side effect of this plan. If 3NT is not a valid puppet response for them, 3 will be their response 80-90% of the time and the frequent wins in 3 ...
Was this (not) funny enough?
I agree with Bud it is fine to file a recorder form if you found the auction suspicious. Filing the recorder form is *not* accusing a pair of cheating. It is a way of reporting an action that seemed suspicious to you at the time--nothing more. Innocent behavior can look ...
Peter Gill's bidding problem: QJ9 7 T9653 QJ75
you have the offensive strength for 2, barely, but your ODR is low, you have the lower ranking suit so you are likely to lose the auction and your suit is bad.
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: AKJ9752 AJ852 --- 6
Passing *is* guessing. Partner will never know how much offense you have after a 4 call so his decision won't be reliable.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J9754 Q82 KJ7 A2

Kevin Fay's bidding problem: AQT75 A942 --- AKJ3
What if partner raises you to 4? or takes preference to 3? or rebids 3NT? In all cases you may be missing a 4-4 heart fit.
When does a "Takeout Double" of 1!C become Ineffective?
If the opponents treat 1 as a natural opening, even if the minimum is 2, then double should be takeout. However, if the opponents open 1 on any balanced pattern in a particular point range, e.g., 11-13 balanced or 17-19 balanced, I play double promises about 15 ...
Francisco Montes de Oca's bidding problem: KTxx KJx x AK9xx
Yes 4 created a force and no 4 did not cancel it.
Sebastian Kristensen's bidding problem: QT3 AJT9843 KQT ---
This hand is very likely to play as well or better in hearts.
