    Did partners 4 bid mean something more than the obvious? Like showing slam interest in diamonds or something? I just feel like something was going on with the bidding here that I’m not fully aware of… @graeme?

    I don’t remember fragments splinters or something like that being automatic. I’d really like to have explored more. What was with the response?

    messed up the first time and needed a second try to get 13. Guess it’s easier the second time

    Very satisfactory to actually get into the right contract and make one extra.

    @Graeme I have the same question as @newtz2001 and vigg75137. Seemed odd to me. I made the contract but it was a real punt from North.

      It wasn’t North’s most subtle bid ever, @oddfellow. If he doesn’t know what to do he tries not to confuse the issue. 2S, change of suit and forcing seems ok. Some sort of scientific approach for @vigg75137 would be ok if North was that sophisticated. 4S was just, oh hell, I really don’t know what I should do and even though this might not be right at least we’re in a major game. Nothing fancy, @newtz2001, just an unhelpful bid.
