    @graeme – take no notice of my play which was bizarre. Auction though was very wrong. N showed an unbalanced hand so I supported the 5-card spade suit.

      @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?

        @graeme no I strongly don’t agree. Why show a club fit? I’ve shown a balanced hand with a diamond hold(!) and he has a balanced balanced hand w another diamond hold. I think 3 C always promises 5 Spades. Otherwise 3NT is the obvious contract.
