Who was more at fault?
South's plan should have been to try to make North bid hearts so that he can initiate the Grand Slam Force. East's unwise double gave that opportunity. If South redoubled, North might have bid four hearts and South could have bid five notrump. (Whether five notrump as GFS ...
Do these auctions show support/preference for first suit?
The first auction is easy. North denied values with the first pass. If he had long spades only, he would bid two spades on the second round. Now he should be showing tolerance for clubs. (Probably six-two in the blacks.)
Bidding majors with 4-4 after 1NT
Would you please add the option that if partner is considering bidding two clubs, our partnership is over.
A bidding problem or not?
If North is allowed to make only one bid, it should be six spades. Whether he should pass after bidding five hearts over four spades and partner's five spades, is debatable. (Opener may have the same hand minus the ace of hearts.) With two low hearts, North would bid ...
ATB after pre-empt
There is a name for North's four-club bid: nothing bid.
Down Under Coup
I'd say cashing a high spade imposes sort of a MacGuffin dilemma on South.
Please assign blame
I assume that options 3 to 5 are there for the sake of completeness, not because they belong there.
Advanced safety plays
H.H. would never answer the first question without additional info: who are the opponents; and equally importantly, to what extend do they know me and my capabilities?
Assign the passing blames
West hit the jackpot when he caught ideal hands all around. My usual luck would either receive a three-club jump shift or a two-notrump response.
Four spades
[b]Would not 3♥ offer such choice of games?[/b] It would not. It sure does include those possibilities. Given that we are by definition “defensive bidding” and that two clubs is nonforcing, three hearts would cover all game-forcing hands, including three-notrump probe.
