what do you call this play?
Declarer missed a countermeasure which would have foiled the carpet coup. After a H to the K, he should have ruffed the 10C felling E queen (again).
What is your favourite bridge hand? (At the table)
Oops, yes was 1075.
What is your favourite bridge hand? (At the table)
My favorite was AQxxxx AKQx Ax A. Vul vs not, it went 3H on my left, and pard bid 4D. I bid 7NT and dummy had x - KJTxxxxx KQJTx. RHO had 4234 with SK and was squeezed, a spade lead would have beaten it.

High level competitive balancing question
I like Jim Munday's answer, as 5-6 in hearts and clubs is possible even. However, another possibility is what you alluded to in the OP. That is, you may be bidding to make, a save, etc. I prefer my action here to give partner an idea of what to ...
Vikor Solution for the Bergen Raises
Good catch Chris, I misstated actually. Preemptive raises would still bid 3H right away. I was thinking of the 3C/3D Bergen raises. I tend not to think of the preemptive raise as "Bergen" since it is popular among pairs that use a direct limit(+) raise without the rest of ...
