about me

I'm a fourth year mathematics major at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.  I spend far too much time on BBO.  If I didn't play bridge I'd probably be much better at math :)

I'm confused. Did West not discourage on the first heart shift?

Assuming the opps run to 2M and partner doesn't double, I'll bid 2NT.
