    Interesting hand although without game going values by North we don’t find out about our spade fit using Smolen. That would have been a better contract!

    I play 4 card majors and opened the spade online, but in the club I’d open a diamond and my partner would use check-back stayman after my NT rebid to ask if I have 3 hearts or four spades. It works great with these hands.

    With the North hand, one could use Stayman to find a spade fit and bid 2 after a 2 response to indicate 4 spades and 5 hearts if necessary.
