Problem


The Auction:

 

West North East South
      1NT
Pass 2♣ Pass 2
Pass 3♣ Pass 3
Pass 3NT Pass ?

 

 

You open the auction with 1NT instead of 1, North responds with 2♣ – Stayman and you answer with 2. North continues with 3♣ indicating 5+ clubs and 0-2 hearts, you repeat hearts and bid 3. North calls 3NT, meaning at least 10 points.

You have a singleton club, but North has a long suit of clubs, so 3NT seems a reasonable choice. Should you go higher?

How are you going to proceed?

When there is no clear fit and your side has three long suits, 6NT can be the best choice.
