… or Hoping to Make
Bidding: East opens weak 2H – (2S) – 4H – (PASS); PASS – (4S) – ALL PASS
MrQ: Should South just pass 4H instead of bidding 4S? You never know what 4H raise after 2H is? Could be constructive, could be pre-emptive. My logic was that if it is constructive, 4S might be a good sacrifice (if not doubled – opponents didn’t look like they would double and they didn’t), if it was pre-emptive, 4S might make.
Guru: South should double 4H showing a good hand with points outside hearts and a very good 2S and North would probably pass, whether the 4H is intended as b…sh.t or hoping to make.
