40+ years of playing bridge and I have never seen such an auction, nor do I expect to in what time is left to me.

So we guess. I guess this was a ghoulie, and that rho is 6-6 or even 6-7, and that partner won't lead a club to give us a plus score (and a club ruff may be our only trick anyway).

I bid the obvious 6 and get doubled. Might make, but I am not redoubling :P

I don't think there are a lot of lessons to be learned here, regardless of the actual lay of the cards.

Let's ask PK to provide us with examples of this auction from real play!

No, not a goulash, just a deal from the club last night. As you can see north is certifiable, but I just wanted to check that my feeling that 6S was obvious was correct.
