Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is this a weak two in 1st/2nd seat in your preferred style
Must admit I wouldn't open this hand at unfavorable but imps vs matchpoints might make a difference.
ATB missed slam
Guessing its somewhere in the Dallas Fort Worth area!
ATB missed slam
Phil, while at matchpoints I could see how you could be right, I don't think its necessarily a good bet. Lets even trade hands and give dummy your partners hand and vice versa. Obviously now you might not even beat 2s and if partner has Qx or Qxx of ...
ATB missed slam
I do know a few players that at favorable vul. would not overcall but the other 2000 all would I believe. After passing I feel I have to do something to show this hand other than 4 hearts. Partner doesn't need much than x Kxxx xxxx AJxx to make ...

How would you rule?
Gonzalo, not exactly but you can not just ignore everything else and say you only did something because he had to have a certain distribution. And John, not suggesting a split score but a penalty for the offending side for not knowing what they were playing or using UI.
