Gib only has 12 hcp you can hardly expect it to go to game :)

I understand that, but in 15 plays 12 other gibs didnt have a problem without partner bidding anything other than raising spades.
if gibs partner shows 6 hearts and 3 spades the odds are greatly increased especially with 11 card fit

my point is what helps partner the most, you have already shown three card support, bidding Three spades over three clubs doesnt give any extra info to partner.

3 shouldn't even be inviting at all, but GIB seems often to 'accept' in those situations.

I'm joking. Some people would open this 4. is ridiculous of course.

Steve
thanks you had me worried.
I ran a simulator and it took 5 hours to come up with 200 hands and 95% of the time 4!s makes
the real question is what would you do over 5!D
