Opponents vulnerable
85
AQ74
AK762
KQ


Partner deals and passes, then

pass-(pass)- 1 -(1)
double-( 3 )-? ? ?




If you double go to number #1
if you bid 4 go to number #2
if you bid 5 asking for a spade control (hopefully) go to number #3

I have a flat board, feel pretty good about that. I'm not surprised because I thought that both choices were really obvious.
Please note: I am interested in boring, bog standard, 2/1.

:P It seems to me that you have a perfect 4 bid the first time. Partner might have 6 to 8 working HCP with four average hearts. The odds you have a slam (given your awful doubleton spade) appears to me to be way off-percentage. Pard shows another king with his pass of 4 spades, so I have to consult the runes whether to pass or bid 5 hearts. I would have to construct a lot of possible hands in my head to do this.

Even when they are obvious to you I would enjoy reading what decisions you took each time

I am "the glass is half full" type. :) So I had made a slam try at my first opportunity. In retrospective this was a clear overbid non vul against vul. opps.

4, then double.

Obviously not a forcing pass, because there's nothing in the auction to suggest that I bid 4 to make. As it happens I did bid it to make, and I have quite reasonable defence but insufficient offensive strength to go to the five level, so I double.

I like the format of the question.
... that would still not be conclusive proof, before someone wants to explain that to me as well as if I was a 5 year-old. - gwnn

I double first time around, pass 4H. Then I bid 5C if I trust partner to read as max hand in the context with some chances for slam and 5H if I don't.
I think that if it goes:

pass pass 1D 1S
dbl 3S dbl pass
4H pass pass 4S
pass*

* = this pass should be forcing as our double showed significant extras.

Even if it's not forcing I think I make 5H very often with partner having 5+ hearts.

Well I think my decision of doublling was poor, partner bid 4 and I wasn´t really worth a slam try anyway so passed it


I was surprised to see a 4 bid from my LHO, with this vulnerability what could he be thinking about?.

Opponents get to 4 vul vs not outgunned, now it was time to think that they probably have at least 10 trumps and now if partner hasa spade singleton, then every honnor in his hand is useful. Having K, A and Q is very possible.

On the other hand I remmebered Justin saying something like pros won´t take high variance actions with small +EV. So I expected Seamons to have a very good hand for 4 and double not to be highly profitable. So I moved on, had Jimmy been the one who bid 4 I would be more inclined to double. I decided to move with 4NT, bidding 5 over the expected 5 in case Wank understood it as a slam try and decided to raise with the dream hand. Well he didn´t have anything close to the dream hand :).

2 --> 6

I can hardly believe there's a slam here. I got bad shape, bad club holding and a passed pard across. To me this is just a plain game bid + dbl if they keep butting-in. If pard pulls my dbl, I MIGHT try for something. But not otherwise.
