Updated 28 April: I passed with the big hand, but did wonder if I should have been more optimistic about its potential, not least because I’d hate to go down in 3D with 3NT gin. Not to mention you might be making 6C with 3D and 3NT failing!

It’s a pity now as I ask what should be done with the hand opposite the preempt (or not) that your answers will not be independent of knowing the situation, but still,

All Vul your partner opens 3D in first seat. What should you do with:

    Sigh. He’s done the wrong thing again (maybe).
    I pass merrily and let partner play the contract with his
    xx Jx A109xxxx Kx. If it goes 3D P P X; P P 3NT
    they’ll throw IMPs on the next 3 boards too.
