graeme wrote It doesn’t matter what the cards are, it’s the auction that says all. 3D in this case is the fourth suit and therefore might have, but doesn’t promise, a diamond suit. West is as much in the dark as North and South and in this case chooses 3NT because, we’ll, I guess he didn’t like spades and didn’t want to go to the 4 level with 4C. I might have chosen 3S sitting West but that’s a side issue. Hope that helps.

Player4 wrote @graeme teaches to go with gut. No asking just go for it. Also principle of fast arrival, go for game and stop the bidding. Didn’t play it very well but got my game contract. Seems keeping quiet worked better for this hand.
4 card majors, Strong 2 bids, Weak NT.

graeme wrote Same contract as you, @Socks. I’m not keen on bidding that suit but I guess some people are. No problem.
