kbalagopal wrote note to self: always review the bidding. Thought E had bid the hearts and W didn't support so played accordingly for 1 down

kbalagopal wrote Hints are off here (hence the pesky reverse issues...) But 3♣ seemed right telling partner hand was unbalanced and "do what you want". 4H easy I'll take it!

kbalagopal wrote happy enough with N - East's 1NT showing 16-18 was a clear indicator that N didn't have much extra. Don't think I would have used the weak 2 since that says hearts and nothing else. What if partner has clubs?
