MPs, R v R

J63
AKQJ96

1H (P) 1S (2C)
?

Playing support double so you can show 3 spades.

If you do double it continues:

X (3C) 3S (4C)
?

Now what?

If you bid 4H partner bids 4S


If you don't double what do you bid?

As it happens the winning line appears to be to open 4H which shuts out ops who can make 5C but that never entered my head.

As always, thanks in advance,

Simon

If playing support X then it doesn't look bad to use it here. What goes wrong in 4S?

I guess part of it depends on agreements. If you've agreed that 2D & 3H (and perhaps even 4H) here explicitly denies 3 spades, then you should definitely X.

If not playing support X, I'd bid either 2D, 3D, 3H or 4H next depending on how I'm feeling on the day. Probably 3H.

1) Support DBL
1a) then 4H ( after 4C )
2) 5C! ( over 4S )

4S can go off if not played correctly. 4H is cold and 5H can make on slack defence.

I took the 3S free-bid for more ... I figured partner had some stuff in Diam .
I guess there is bad spade split too.

I would just rebid hearts. I have AKQJxx. If they can tap me playing in hearts they can probably also cut off partner from the heart suit if we play in spades. And I don't want double to end the auction.

Never though of that, nice tip to add to the thought processes.

Thanks,
