    @graeme I am not expert in Michaels cue bids, but this hand seemed to be tailor made for a 2H bid, signaling 5S and a 5 card minor. Does the robot play Michaels – or did I miscall it? Thanks!

    An exciting response from north to my takeout double – it worked like a charm! Fortunate that I had a stopper in clubs or we’d have had a debacle!

    Thank you @graeme and @bajir. A fellow SKB member told me to look up Michaels, and I am trying to learn how to play:)

    Left at 4S on first time played but was very tempted to go further. Hindsights always good. Redealed and went Ace asking as guessed by jump to 4S they had points and them being overcaller this was possible. When response was 2 Aces jumped to 6NT. Made 7, probably helped by discarding 8C early that had opposition discarding their clubs also to enable making all tricks.
