    Not keen on defending 2C and not keen on bidding my 9732 of hearts again but mostly not keen on defending 2C. I guess we would have defeated 2C but 2H snuck home. Really not sure whether I should have bid or not. North’s double was ok, I guess, but he had pretty bad shape for a takeout double which normally shows shortage in the suit bid. Maybe he could have overcalled 1NT. Pass would be ok. Double was ok. What would you do with the North hand?

      Well, it was a bit of a scrap, @johnsmart. Did West lead the C6 for you? That looked like 4th highest to me so I figured I could let it run around to my hand. East ruffed, but I still had my clubs intact in the dummy. That was a start, anyway.
