I ran the ten no luck there. Are you best to play for a short honour? Heart to the Ace but then what the queen to squash the JX or low to get the Kx ??

I momentarily thought of doubling but not with 8 of my points short in their suits :)

Best thing on this hand was for East to respond to 1S. Some wouldn't.

Right so this is similar to a hand last week.
Jess and I played against the bots last night
Our bidding was (1C) P (P) X (P!!)2S (P) 4S
Not really sure if I had enough for 2S, but i hadn't overcalled 1S so I was pretty sure she knew I only had 4S.

I didn't get the spade right but I eliminated my clubs and when East got in ruffing a fourth diamond they were toast! into giving me a ruff in sluff (what they did) or playing hearts for me.

I think the reasoning was all about our discussion with you about doubles. As in her mind I would double to show 4H thus by bidding two I showed five.

(1C) X (1S) X**
Whats the double show?

Liam got me hook line and sinker on this one. They were only in 2C so no hope of us taking it off. But he still got me for the over tricks! Coming out the 8H from his hand, I panicked thinking he might be trying to fool me with A8 and went up with the K…. disaster

For all the strong NT pairs, did everyone open 1NT with the north? If not did you get to game?

I wouldn't have thought the jump shows 5S? But I have been wrong before, on a similar themed auction at the butler.
I may have been a passed hand cant recall.

(1C) X (1S) 2H*

Jess said I showed 5H, I didn't think I had.

What's the norm?

Reading now Kate's post below

We had a similar auction to you Lori but East doubled the 2D and that's where we played :(

We defended 3H making north also got the 10D which seems normal.

Lori and Therese I like those rules.
I doubled as North as was worried if Jess had the hand that should be doubling may not double due to our third seat openings. Was very happy with 500.
I like Barbs comment re west after the 1NT you might buy it in 2H so why push to three!
