* - Texas Trasfer
** - 4 Notrump Preempt
West opens the auction with 1 NT, you – as North – pass; East responds with 4♥ – a Texas Transfer meaning East has 6+ spades. In anticipation of the contract of 4♠ by the opponents, South interferes with 4 Notrump Preempt (a Weak Minor Preempt), which promises a long minor suit, 5 diamonds or 5 clubs.
You relay to clubs by bidding 5♣, South passes and West doubles.
East leads the ♠5. How are you going to play this hand?
