New suit by passed hand (advancer) always shows support for overcaller's suit.

The whole problem is created by: “…weak responder will usually pull 1NT to 2M with a 5-bagger.” IMO weak responder should pull only with a six card suit.

The opponents were lucky this time. Next time, they will have the same misunderstanding and the same auction and they will miss a makeable slam. Should you still call the Director?

By the way, Dinkin and Shuster are featured in today's Aces On Bridge article by Bobby Wolff for the excellent defense they put up in a hand in the Swiss Teams of last year's Atlanta Summer NABC.

The Society of Bridge Cheats wishes to extend their grateful thanks to Michael Shuster and Mike Ma and anyone else who wishes to contribute to their cause.

For the rest of you, stubbornly honest people, you can sleep easy for from now on nothing they do will pass Hammond's Magic Cheat Detector.

Peg, it's not clear from your explanation who held what. You say “we languished in 1” implying that your partner opened 1 and you passed. Yet, you also say that “our teammates bid and made 4”… Sounds like they held the same cards as you? Finally, you mention an auction that starts with 2. Who? Your opponents or teammates?

No, it was a one-board event.

The question is which 4NT? Quantitative or RKCB?

MR: The example hand you show is “interesting” because it provides a good case against 4NT RKCB and in favor of 4 Gerber.
After 4 - 4 - 4N, the 0 or 3 answer will leave us too high in 5 when missing all 3 Aces.
After 1N - 4, responder can rest in 4:
(using 0 or 4, 1, 2, 3 responses)
4 - 4; or
4 - P; or
4 - 6; or
4N - 7N.

Ken's point above is how to decide between 6 and 6N at matchpoints when one Ace is missing. We might be missing the A-K of the same suit… so 6 is safer.

There is a time and place for Gerber. Was that what you had in mind?

Sorry, I just saw the back and forth between Richard Fleet and Kit Woolsey in a different thread concerning those very same hands. At least Kit is consistent with himself as per his answer below.
