    Very interesting hand! Grizzle again about North’s bidding! Presumably, North must have bid his diamonds for all the lucky people who bid and made 6NT. I can’t understand his bid of 3D instead of 1H over my 1D. One cannot make 6 diamonds because of the split. In NT, 12 tricks lay down after clearing the AH. Perhaps I should have bid 3Spades instead of 4NT!

    hi amafyram – I bid 4NT telling partner my good hand, but also half hoping that partner would either answer me with Aces, (I was figuring on a diamond fit), or pass, or bid 5NT. 6NT was luck.

    It’s easier for North if you bid 1S as it happens. I take your point though.

      Hi @golfmadviv,
      You’re playing a weak notrump opening so North’s rebid shows 15-17 for you and he has nothing extra. For the strong 1NT players a rebid of 1NT shows 12-14. In that case North has as lot extra and accepts the invitation to slam. Actually, North has too much extra! – he shouldn’t bid like that in Standard. Nor does he have a balanced hand, although those 4441 shapes always cause trouble.
