Well done for not giving up! What your opponent was doing I can't imagine, he could see  !C K sitting over him and (unless  !S were 4441) knew that his partner couldn't stop the 4th  !S trick.

Please note that any OCP questions I answer are based on my current knowledge of the system, and I've PROBABLY checked them on the website. I've never done Oliver's course (as the time just doesn't work for me) so if he's taught something different in previous years, I don't know about it!

I have made a "problem format" of this hand, see the thread

         http://ocp.pigpen.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=1257.0

A big thank you to Walid for for including the tiny URL.

FYI - you can copy the text of ANY (BBO) tiny URL and drop it on to an open aaBridge window.

That way it will open and NOT automatically show you the Opps cards.

One thing: Don't forget that the OCP system specifies Transfer Lebensohl over Doubles of their weak 2's (whether the doubler is 2nd-in-hand or protecting). Now the bidding would start:

(2 !H) - No   - (No)   - X
(No)   - 3 !C - ??

If West doesn't come in with 3 !H, North will bid 3 !D and now his !H King is protected. If West does come in with 3 !H you're no worse off if North passes or bids 3 !S.
