Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
maximal double, DSIP support or somethign else ?
Some combination of the first 3? I play support only through 2H, failure to raise directly likely denies 4S, and it is hard to imagine a hand without 3S.
Trivia - thanks to Barry and Richard for the idea
Yes! I was unfamiliar with inversions for that country. I always recommend this book to more advanced players. It's a humbling experience.
Trivia - thanks to Barry and Richard for the idea
I thought both would have been ( 4,6). If so I would have hit it on first shot.

Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AJ AKJ9632 --- KQT9
And if 1H is not passed out, aren't you ahead of the game, i.e. Haven't you "won" the auction?
Jacoby 2NT?
You could cue 4H after showing a long strong suit with a big fit. I've always preferred showing a long strong source of tricks to a splinter when making a major suit raise.
