Just play bridge robots. Human South.



GIB description of the South hand is exactly what I have. GIB has a psychotic aversion to bidding 3NT. There's no way that 3 on a 4-2 fit stands a better chance than 3NT.

The problem is in Gib responses to takeout doubles.
Gib is incapable of showing it's 4-card suit.
Gib has a nice hand but not that nice. A cue bid is unnecessary.
Simply jump to 2 and pretty well describe it's hand.

This is a common problem, you can't just play in a fit. Gib has to make 2 bids and then you miss fit.
Sarcasm is a state of mind
