4 DIAMONDS—3 PTS.
4 HEARTS OR 4 SPADES—1 PT.
Don't be a nursemaid. Had partner been interested in hearing about the majors, he would have doubled the three-diamond bid. As between the other calls, we have a preference for the false cue bid of four diamonds since it is more apt to uncover the best trump fit.
3 DIAMONDS—5 PTS.
It may seem that this hand rates aggressive action, but a takeout double would be attended with grave danger if partner responded three spades. If you miss a heart game, charge it up to the effectiveness of pre-emptive tactics.
2 NO TRUMP—5 PTS.
3 CLUBS—2 PTS.
3 DIAMONDS—1 PT.
Partner appears to have slam aspirations. However, too much of your strength is concentrated in spades—a serious duplication of values. Another mild call is indicated to slow partner down.
