ATB - No Double, No Game
No it's just a negative double, in that it makes our score more negative.:)
ATB - No Double, No Game
My partner says if I pass out a contract he figures we have a chance to beat it, but when I double he knows it's likely to be +1.
Missed Slam
South's hand is so good after 3♠ I feel he deserves the blame. But I wonder if N had an even stronger raise available. For instance if S were 3613 slam is still excellent and I couldn't blame him for not getting excited with that hand.
Bridge Stories and Jokes
Many years ago some of us went to the bar after the evening duplicate. Someone made some comment, and my partner, with a sudden attack if dyslexia, said, " oh, like Baze Grant". Quickly realizing his mistake, he shook his head and said," I mean Bant Graze".
ATB: Overbid slam
Slam is great if N has a fourth trump instead of say a ♦. If S had a way of asking if 3 or 4 trump he definitely should have used it rather than bid 4♦. If not, then I think N should look at his bad trump holding and sign ...

ATB for missing this slam
I abstained because I also would have opened 3♥, but if it's partnership style not to do so then N should bid over 4❤ I think, expecting something like this. I do like x better than 3NT though.
How do you play this bid?
Yes " takeout of hearts" is somewhat similar description, but I agree it's more " if you're doubling hearts they're in trouble."
How do you play this bid?
I agree David, if partner has a reasonably good hand. But what if he had a heart stack and not much else because you have the extras?
How do you play this bid?
I would say extras, penalty-ish, especially if 2♦ is nf. Partner can easily have a penalty double of hearts on this auction. Say 3145 or 2146.
