When this hand was played in a team event, one
East bid 4 over 2 and the other bid only 3.
West passed 3 and made four when hearts and
diamonds split 3-2.

East should bid 4, not 3. The principle here is
that when it's close to invite game or bid game,
you should bid game, taking the pressure off partner.
Consider a slightly weaker hand for East, with
king-fourth of hearts or queen-fourth. East would
still want to invite game (in case his partner is 5-5
shape), so with two aces, he must bid the game.

If you have a good bidding question, submit to:
