Scoring: IMP

Opps silent:
2-3-?

2=6+, limited to 15
3=inv 6+ suit

First one is probably WTP and I'm just resulting, but I'm curious about style on the 2nd one.
I once yelled at my partner for discarding the 'wrong' card when he was subjected to a squeeze that I allowed by giving the wrong count with too high a card. Now he's allowed to pitch aces when the opponents have the king in the dummy. At trick 2. When he could have followed suit. And blame me.

1st one I have a maximum so I accept the invitation.

2nd one I think I will bid 4. Partner does not promise a particular number of spades per se, but now that our opps bid so many hearts we rate to have a 9 card fit most of the time and 8 card fit almost always. Maybe if my opps were confirmed lunatics I'd just X..
... and I can prove it with my usual, flawless logic.

1. Would have opened 1N. I now bid 4 - could be a silly contract, or it could be cold.

2. 4

I had two like the first one in a recent practice session. In both cases we were off two red AKs. In one case 3NT was cold and in the other not as one suit we had Qx opposite Jx.

Nevertheless although its easy to imagine four losers but somehow it is hard to imagine passing.

In the second one I can imagine PASS working best. If partner can act - T/O double or 4NT for the minors we should get to a good spot. If not we might not have a game. Afterall we are minimum balanced.

1) 3NT feels best, with good spades and shape partner can still bid

2) This is a prefect hand for P/X-I... P-f-4 showing a flexible hand

Ya this wasn't in our NT range, only conceivable opening systematically was 2.

And I guess I should have meant on the first one, 3NT or 4S? Pass wasn't an option with partner's usual hand type.

True, although people in Utah don't playing Kamikaze.

Or maybe they are - there's not a lot of excitement there :)
