Interesting Board #3 of final 8 teams 1st segment.
"But it is not unreasonable for West to lead a heart from length including the King if his club and diamond holdings are uninviting." In which case it is more likely that either the diamond or club is onside?
What is wrong with the Montreal Relay?
Well at a recent regional opponents answered exactly that when I asked and got very ornery when I asked for more clarification, so maybe practitioners of the 'Montreal Relay' believe it is self-evident what their bids mean?
What does this 4NT bid mean?

@Bernard I had 63 AK10x Q9x Qxxx and when I got in with Q of clubs I knew declarer had AK spades and AJ of clubs, so if he had the Q of hearts that would mean he made a strange play in diamonds. Even though I had worked all ...
What signal do you give?
I was W on this hand. From my perspective, based on declarer’s play from dummy at trick one and the fact that he considered ducking partner’s jack it was clear to me that our best defense was to continue spades even though I had led from 63. I ...
What signal do you give?
Because I don’t remember the spot played, but I had to pick something?
