Matchpoint vs a passed partner.

agreement. I am for the passing camp as opposite
a passed hand there is little chance of game and
it might be better to back into the bidding when
the opps have shown limited power.
If we lose the auction an x here makes the play practically
double dummy for the opps (not usually a good thing for us).

Partner held [xx x JT9xx KJ9xx] and auction continued:
P (1S) X (4S)
Eventually leading to 5Cx -3 for -500. No big deal at IMPs where the field was scoring 480 but it didn't win us any matchpoints.

I do like the notion of promoting my spade Q, however....I saw this idea written about in the MSC several years ago and it made sense then and now. But that heart holding....makes me shudder, given the rest of the foot I hold.
