QUESTION: Consider a responding bid of 2 hearts to an opening bid by his partner of 1 heart. The responding partner has only 5 points but 5 hearts. The bidding has progressed to 3 hearts by opening partner and pass by responding partner. The contract was 3 hearts and the game turned out we went down 1 but opening partner insisted I should still have gone to 4 hearts instead of passing. What do you think?
Unlikely that you should bid 4H but it is impossible to say without knowing exactly what your whole hand is.

QUESTION: Sorry. The hand of 5 points was K. Q, 10, 9, 7 hearts. What do you think>
I still do not know the distribution of the other suits.
If there is no singleton or void then definitely pass.
If the distribution is 5-5-3-0 bid 4H.
If it is 5-4-3-1 you could attempt 4H but it is an aggressive bid. Passing would also be acceptable.
