I didn't pass a marginal hand qxxx aqjxx aj9x but after bidding 3hts and hearing 3sp from partner didn't think I had enough tricks to bid 3nt opposite a NF 3d after we went past 3nt it was too late

Did I miss something? They took a sack over our game and pard
Made a forcing pass. Maybe 5d makes but doesn't feel like they
Are bidding to make

The reason I am not playing in the trials this year has more to do with value than anything else. For less time and similar amounts of money I can play in three nationals rather than one trials and world championship. It is very difficult for me to justify to myself spending that much time away from my kids.

My plan was 3nt over 3sp. And couldn't come up with
A hand partner would bid 4sp with on this auction.

It seems weird to me to lead a diamond unless you are going to float it. If you ruff high and trumps turn out to be 4-1 then you go down another trick which is huge in mps. The only upside I see is hoping RHO will take a long pause and you then decide to float the diamond. Doesn't seem to be worth it

Barry I totally agree. In my world 2hts is misguided. i dont see where 2cl is wrong.Maybe if we play a 3 3 fit?

4sp cannot be passable. What are you catering to partner being 6 5 and 4 spades the only makable game?

Playing 3hts is weak with hts is such a small window since you can bid 2hts with a reasonable hand with 6 hts and bid 3 hts with a weak hand with 6 hts. With a non expert partner I would still assume it is weak even though I don't like it

I see that I am in the minority but I believe 3hts should be a 4 card ht suit with a game forcing hand ie axx akjx jxx xxx And a game forcing hand with a club card that doesn't want to bid three NT bids 3cl axx ajxx xxx axx

3nt and 4hts are silly give partner a bad overcall x xx axxx aj10xxx and he has a slam. I double t/o of coarse this way i can bid 4nt kc if he happens to bid 4hts. 4nt undiscussed creates many problems. and i dont know what the rush is in bidding slam right away

It was truly a pleasure to win with a group of five great guys who wanted to win in the worst way but never lost the concept of what being a great team player is. I agree with what Geoff said in regards to the last set. The Diamond team played tough to the very end. BTW Joe I was cold for 11 tricks not 10
