Player4 wrote I agree wholeheartedly but partner wouldn’t accept my NT bid, taking me back to spades.

Player4 wrote It sometimes feels like the longer you contemplate a particular bid, the worse the decision you make. 4S seemed possible but on yet more contemplation I left it in 3, making 11 tricks of course. But, when I bid quicker, on gut instinct, I do even less well! Time for a drink methinks....

Bajir wrote I love this comment @player4! feels like a metaphor for life - thought too long about some decision you had to make? better to have a drink and trust your gut next time. :)
Player4 wrote It is so much like MY life. I did the same thing, with the same negative result, with board 6! So perhaps I should take the following suggestion from @graeme and hand the controls over. But . . . I’ve been in the 80% range the past few days and today’s result is my best for a while. Another drink coming on.
Player4 wrote Thanks @JcksPA. I always have time for another interesting read.

Player4 wrote My bidding sequence, as below, seemed to work out well. Ended up in the same contract as banksia but by a very different route. Making 4H.

Player4 wrote It was looking good up to that last hand - 19% really doesn’t help much! (Left in 3H).

JOHNkib wrote Same here, @Player4. I don't understand North's passing on South's 3H bid. North knows that South's hand is weak (2D) but with support for hearts (3H). The onus is now on North to bid on. With a singleton diamond North's hand is worth 25 points. The bidding is forcing to game.
