    @tina, I think 3C was too high but not sure why you think it shows un unbalanced hand. He shows the spade suit, fair enough, and then returns to show you support and, albeit lightly, invites to game. How else would he show a club fit? 3C isn’t forcing, so you if you want to bid game you would bid 3S at that point to show partial support, wouldn’t you?

    I didn’t like to bid NT without a diamond stop. I thought I was (just) strond enouthg to bid the hearts. Good contract if you can play the hand like @helen (well done!) to high for me – 2 light

    Bit of good fortune, really. We were a little light in HCP, and the hands didn’t look solid. I thought that I was headed for 1, or even 2, off, but after getting a bit of a break with the D’s, I noted that the last 3 boss D’s were with W. I was able to avoid the finesse towards W, and take the two top clubs, instead. Then led the Cx to E, knowing he had the Q – and no way of getting to W, as I still had the top H’s and S. She led back another C for that all-important 9th trick. Most satisfying hand today…

    wadkin37 Goodness gracious! Shouldn’t North have responded to my opening NT? He has 7 HCPs. Then again, I guess he must have used
    his math skills and added things up, realized we weren’t going to game and in order to keep my strong hand unexposed, he passed.
    Your computer has acquired remarkably human-like skills!
