MrQ: Too aggressive bidding from West?

Guru: Not at all. Stupid bidding by South. West should always go to 5 of a minor if NS are to be believed, but if East believes that NS are clueless (why bid a FORCING 3S) then East should double 4H knowing South’s spades are no use to North and if South now bids 4S East can double that. In a decent tournament North will open 4H and West will then bid 4NT, East 5C and end up down one. That should be the normal result. 5C could even make.
