2D & 4C are not obligatory but acceptable. 4D is automatic (it doesn't even promise a D control normally just some slam interest opposite the short club). 4H is correct. 4SP is fine and 5C now gives the void with the minimum (otherwise S would bid directly 5C). So only the final 6H is really questionable in my view.

I was always under the impression that most bridge players are addicted to gambling(at least old-schoolers). Moreover, they use bridge as their “methadone” as it helps them get similar feelings with gambling without the negative economic impact.

What is 1NT for them after 1D-1H. It seems they don't play it as natural hence the balanced strong hand without 4 spades is much more probable now. Anyway 3 little diamonds is very bad for offence so I don't think we can make 4SP.
PS: I agree that the polling system is the worst. We need directors that are very good players and are familiar with the players.

I recognise karapet the unlucky and he is one of my all time favourite characters. However, saying that Armenia is a suburb of Turkey is something that if you knew about the genocide you would never have mentioned. That is why i urge you to read about it.

“That's a suburb of Turkey” You might want to google Armenian Genocide then edit your comment.

Even if partner is very light you only need an entry to receive your ruff. It must be over 80%

I cash the third heart just in case my partner found the killing lead with two hearts and AQ of diamonds. If partners discards, I will follow his signal. If not, I will probably switch to spades, playing him for the K of spades and Ace of diamonds.

I like Patrick Laborde's response. As the count of the suit is evident from the bidding, coming back the 5 of spades, in general principles will help partner to find the correct switch (in our case club from Qxx)
