Had a partner who high lowed in dummy if he was sure he was making.

Is dumb. 4 is an easy number to pick a winner in a knockout.
You could even decide 3rd with the losers playing each other.
It's not like is costs the ACBL extra (much) money to award more masterpoints.

I would pay extra! But then I wouldn't be in the second bracket even :)

On the bright side if you do use garbage Stayman and get a 2NT response you are guaranteed a real fit. So, aren't you protected by the law!?

West led K presumably played T trick 2.
The 6 is out so West has it unless south is false carding.
South could be false carding but East should give pause to think rather than assuming.

Who needs texture with a clear rebid.
Is 12 points with 2QT and your going to pass at MP NV vs Vul?!

If this is matchpoints and you wait for that nice maximum with 3-cards your gonna get a bad score when partner with 5 doesn't compete as they are afraid of a 5-2 fit.

Mathematically it's easy to win both matches but not win on victory points.
But in the GNT which qualifies for tournaments where winner is decided head to head in a knock-out makes VP in a 3-way a poor choice.

Your opponent took some risk with 5.
Your method of bidding 2 on such a hand allows 3 by North at which point 5 seems reasonable to get to with less risk.

What would your system have enabled you to bid over 2?

Double of 5 is just ghastly. Just no tricks to defend and not enough to play at 5-level.

I did a double dummy on the hands it says 5 should make. Seems obvious ruff a , pull trump, lose finesse in and you have Q as entry to if west holds up.
Maybe you can enlighten how -3?

Never mind the opps preempting your partner is your worst enemy your fit is in the 4th suit you probably won't find it opening 2.
