Analysis by Robert Todd

East could open this hand, but partner will probably expect more when first seat vulnerable, so a pass is possibly better for partnership harmony and trust. South passes also, and now West gets to open 2NT. Now East can transfer to and over partner's acceptance of 3, bid 3NT. It may be tempting to go on further than game, but if partner does not have a fit for us in , the 10 points is probably not enough with partner's 20-21. But if partner corrects 3NT back to 4, we could think about Keycard now.
But partner will pass 3NT and it's a good thing since the bad break will sink a slam!
