Steve White's bidding problem: 52 K86432 87 QT6
Who knows? It was over 6 months ago. I think I would bid 3H, and suspect it was not a success since if it were a success I probably would not have asked here.
Most east-west pairs got in the auction. Should they have
We had that misfortune. South passed (perhaps a double would be negative, I don't know), North reopened with a double* and South converted. (Post corrected; orignally said reopened with a pass. Sorry)

Interestingly, there was a simultaneous BCD pairs playing the same hands. It's harder to judge what interference occurred, except the one table where N-S played 1NT. E-W played 2 four times, three of those doubled, one of those escaping for down 1. N-S played 3 and 3 ...

Yes, 3D would surely be forcing, but that's consuming a heck of a lot of space if you have a moderate heart suit. As two others (at the moment) have suggested, pass should be forcing. I did think pass would be forcing, but thought it would be more helpful ...
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?
Correct, Vanessa. Sorry about that.
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?
This was a club Swiss. While I, North, am very good for roughly 1600 master points, (and West would have a good idea of my ability), I don't think South knew either of us. Also, in fact we were a pickup pair; South a last-minute fill in, who had ...

Steve Myerson: I agree with what you said west did, except that west did not give any misinformation. West's only explanation was that they do not play Smolen, and that was accurate.
