Swans play well in their long suit. Even if partner has 4 or 5 hearts.

Now that the auction has gone this way, I think it is best to get her done.

It's important now to find out if you can play somewhere.
Hopefully not a 3/3 maj. Then get out.

I'm going to guess that having 1 spade an 2 hearts is an ominous warning that I should pass now.

This was about 35 yrs ago.
Her local club had the policy of not more than 1 psych per session. She forgot this was an open national event.
I don't think that the current wording for psychs was even on the books.
I was glad when they finally put something on the books.
But today I don't think it's adequate.

Psych is defined very insufficiently. It needs to be expanded. I don't mind confronting defiances of logic and efficiency. Of course they have their way of handling me too.

People call bids that I make that they would never do psychs.
That's not my definition of psych. So I never psych.

All of my bids have a purpose. The frequency of my purposes depends on how often they come up.

In a Grand National qualifying I opened 1 in 3rd seat on xxx xx xxx Kxxxx. The opps only got to 3. My partner led the A from AQ doubleton. I overtook the Q and gave partner a club ruff. The opps 170 was a zero for them.

The director told me I had used up my 1 psych for the session. I prayed that the very next board would have one of my purposes in it. Alas, neither did the rest of the session.

I've asked questions like that.
Then I get flashbacks on their mannerisms when I get it wrong.

I notice you used the word trumps.
What do I call this diamond suit? 10 tricks.
Unlike somebody I know that has even called an 8 card suit notricks.

I think I can take down 1 when the spades are 1-3.
I don't even want to think about down 1 when the spades are 2-2.

Partner has spades stopped. His other void is the problem.

Or thinking:

What if I had been barred in 1934.
What name would be on everybody's lips instead of mine.

Very good thoughts.

Maybe overload for brute force. simplistic bidders.
I don't know what the opps hands were.

If your going to make a non-partnership bid instead of 5, 7 brings in so many more possibilities than 7N.

RKC.
Player C has never bid a slam without bidding 4N first.

That splinter in the notes escaped me.
I think it took the only way I have of bidding this hand.

I can't help what the other hands are.
Mine says don't go there.

It takes more than vulnerability to make me pass instead of bid 3.

The traditional meaning of 4 is more hcp than this. And I hate it. Especially when other players bid this way against me and do very well.
