BTW would you pass the double form partner having your only values of AKQ?. I decided to pass, but that was wrong, declarer ruffed the A lead and played a trump, my partner played 4 rounds of trumps and declarer claimed 10 tricks.

Now, my partner has a kind of mental disorder and this is normal for him, but what made me sick is that this club wich is suposed to have the best level of my country, had a total 3* -590 after A lead.

Not the best defense ever seen. Good double, though.

Sick? I think it is pretty funny! Maybe I wouldn't find it funny if my partner did this, but I do not play professionally.
Please note: I am interested in boring, bog standard, 2/1.

I would absolutely pass the double. From my position it's the best way of getting a plus score (only way, at this point, unless opps are as crazy as partner seems to be, and would bid 5H over 5D). Seems rather sad that at your club people don't defend in the obvious way.

Interesting that neither East's, South's nor North's suit were better than J108xx. I would have X rather than 1 on the 1st round, which may lead to the same contract, or may lead to 2NT-3 by North for -150.

Having pushed opps to 4, I would sit the double. On the line given, it should go 4 off for +800, almost double dummy, but should always go 1 off as forcing declarer with should be obvious.

How about suggesting a coaching session in your club?

Agree with the overcall, but will certainly pass with N over 2. Bidding 3 on a lousy 5 card suit, when having 2 low and 9 from 10 points in their suit is just insane to me. Partner will often get too excited thinking I have some useful cards for offense and when he has a void, he could pull 4 X, or bid 4 before I can double.

The defense is just insane, I guess you somehow offended your partner and he is now making it clear that he doesnt want to play with you ever again.
