all pass

* spades and a minor
** transfer to hearts

This week's deal is a defensive problem. As East, you open a 15-17 1NT, LHO bids 2S which is the Cappeletti convention, showing spades and a minor. Partner bids 4D, the Texas Transfer convention, a transfer to hearts. North bids 4S over this, and you decide that enough is enough and double. This ends the auction, and partner leads the Queen of Hearts (you play standard leads). Plan your defence.
