Ian Thomson and I usually blast slams without much bidding style. However a bit of science helped us get to this one.
I responded 2D- which is an inverted minor raise showing 11 plus points. Ian now bid 2H-this shows a minimum opening hand. Yes many players would not open his hand! My 2S bid now asked for shortage and the 3C response showed low shortage.This was great news opposite my Club holding. Bidding the slam gave us a 85% score on the board.
