First, look at only the West hand. East, your partner, opens two hearts, a weak two-bid showing a decent six-card suit and 5-10 high-card points. South overcalls two spades. What would you do?

Ask Dr. Gott 8/15

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am deeply concerned about my 85-year-old mother. She was in very good health until four years ago when, in quick succession, she had to have a heart stent and later developed colon cancer.

Her thinking is becoming erratic. She is on a cholesterol drug and vitamins, and as far as I know, that is all.
