What does this 3!h bid mean?
Michael, I don't quite get that comment. The fundamental question is whether this is natural or a cue bid. With your proposed hand wouldn't you bid 3S and, I assume partner's first obligation would be to bid 3NT with a stopper. Maybe I misunderstood. Are you suggesting ...
What does this 3!h bid mean?
OK, I'll raise the sarcasm. 5H is exclusion. :-)
What does this 3!h bid mean?
I think maybe that is part of the problem nowadays. 2H would be Michaels and 3H would ask for a stopper for NT...at least as the way I used to play it. So, you're strapped with a good heart suit.
What does this 3!h bid mean?

Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: AJ AKQJ K8 Q9874
OK, that was pretty overwhelming. Low level bridge game with my buddy who is a decent card player but just bids by the seat of his pants. He bid 3C that got whacked for -500. I thought 2NT was the book bid and that probably wouldn't have gotten hit ...

Can't help it. Tempo Breaking...Bad!
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
DB, so a diamond and a non-diamond lead could exist simultaneously? The diamond lead is only apparent upon east's observation. :-)
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
Well done, Grasshopper. You are making progress. And now consider the Tao of 4D over 3NT. Got to admit, never occurred to me before, but I am going to drink some more and consider the implications. :-)
