bala1954 wrote True confessions: P on round one instead of bidding 1D. Bid 1S second round to try to redeem the error. Worked out well. Better lucky than good!

bala1954 wrote @graeme Question about reverses: I thought N reversed here by bidding 1H, then 2S in second round. Hint on N’s second bid did not mention a reverse. Points seem to be there - why not a reverse? Thank you!

graeme wrote Hi @bala1954, yes, North has reversed, even if the hint doesn't specifically point it out. Well spotted. You're forced to go to a higher level if you want to give preference to North's suit so North must have a string hand.
