Watching Harry Madden (playing with Oscar Selby) against table-topping Holland in the European under 21 competition, I saw this board played live on BBO.
When East bid 1NT and south passed we anxiously watched, hoping Harry would look at his fairly poor cards and bid the game.
North's 1D bid showed 4+ hearts, so QJ doubleton heart must have looked over-valued.
Still, trusting partner will have 19+ points (despite opposition bidding), Harry bid 3NT which Oscar made light work of making.
Well done Harry and all the England teams!

As South the bidding went 3S 4C ? I passed, hoping for a plus, but West bid 4H, back to me.
I was torn but ended up passing. What would you have done?
