Today’s hand comes from the final round of the 2008 South West Pacific Teams Championship, held in Canberra each year. It was a wild hand with some auctions to match.
Dealer South, NS vul.
♠ 2 ♠ 965
♥ T98542 ♥ KJ
♦ 3 ♦ 9865
♣ A8752 ♣ KT63
How good a hand is South’s?
LS asked: If the opponent to my left opens 4S, and my partner doubles, is it wrong for me to pass if I feel we can set them and I don't have a major or 5 card minor?

What our members say
'Just a short note to thank you for putting together such a great adventure to Antartica. Without Derrick's tireless leadership of our group, the voyage would have been limited to the spectacular scenery only. Working behind the scene, you made our venture a holiday never to be forgotten.'
'Your course yesterday was excellent — informative with not a minute wasted. How you coped with that crowd I don't know — it seemed effortless. You may have to book Mosman Town Hall for your next course (which my partner and I wish to book in for now)!'
'Dear everyone at Trumps, I was quite overwhelmed to receive your card — it made me feel very special. I miss Trumps very much indeed — it was a big part of my life for over 20 years.'
'Did you know that I'm a member of the best bridge club in Sydney? Free lessons before play, rewards for winning the session played, a bulletin which I always look forward to. Well done!'
