David Parsons's bidding problem: T762 A2 87 AK875
Comments and votes have died down, so I'll tell you now what partner had, and what his rationale was. Partner was 4=5=4=0 in shape and had a monster hand: S: KQJx H: KQJxx D: Axxx C: - His rationale was as follows: -- Rationale for the redouble: With ...

This is the closest yet...partner was indeed 4-5 in the majors, but what do you think his minor suits look like?
David Parsons's bidding problem: T762 A2 87 AK875
One of the thoughts of partner, in redoubling, was "If they start scrambling, we're likely to find big profits in a penalty doubled contract." Another thought of partner was "It's highly unlikely that they'll be able to preempt the bidding in any suit, as opponent preemption is ...

So far, your comment is the closest to what partner actually had. After a few more posts, I'll disclose what partner had and what he disclosed he was thinking in post-mortem.
David Parsons's bidding problem: AKQJ T986 KQT53 ---
I wanted to see what people said without the information in the "real hand." For the actual hand, there were two passes prior to RHO making a bid of 1D. If my partner had the type of hand you describe (seven or a good six clubs), he probably would have ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: AKQJ T986 KQT53 ---
I ran the simulation with exactly six clubs for my prior post. With seven clubs and 3-5 HCPs, the simulation favors 3C over 2N by 74 to 26.
David Parsons's bidding problem: AKQJ T986 KQT53 ---
Paul, I ran a DD simulation given the bidding and given that partner has six clubs and less than 6 HCPs. At MPs, 2NT is a better contract by a 58-42 margin. Add to that the point that I or partner can reconsider leaving in 2NT if 2NT is doubled ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: AKQJ T986 KQT53 ---
With that distribution and point count do you think you can make more clubs than NT? And 2NT hasn't been doubled and probably won't be...do you think 3C will escape undoubled?
David Parsons's bidding problem: J8 K542 QT7 8743
I tried to create an auction in which you might raise to four on a three card suit. By the comments here, some might never raise to four on a three card suit? What if diamonds and hearts were reversed...would you then consider raising to four clubs? Thanks.
David Parsons's bidding problem: J8 K542 QT7 8743
2D is semi-automatic. Any other bid than 2D shows a five+ card suit headed by two of the top three honors.
