Michael Christensen's bidding problem: KQJ96 Q543 942 8
So it is a broken auction, partner can not know I have 4 hearts, thus the bid can not be forcing from their perspective, but I do have 4 hearts, so clearly partner is way to strong to bid a non forcing 3S. So east psyched is the most logical ...

Can Now Win More MPs in Bracket 2 (or 3) than Bracket 1 (ACBL).
