As a human, what would you bid over 4? I wasn't really sure, but slam seemed very likely and I thought I'd hedge my bets by allowing GIB to pick a suit.

GIBs default is to pass if it doesn't know what to do, despite the description being forcing. Perhaps it should default to something else.
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

So GIB's description is that 5 is forcing to 5N and shows two or fewer .

How can it pass then. At least it must be made to realize that it can punt the ball back being forced to 5NT!

Such a shame that these things can't be made to bid better and at least be forced when its explanation is forcing and it clearly is leaving PD in a joke contract!

According to Gibs reckoning partnerships has 33 pts so why didn't Gib bid slam?
