A very strong month for most of you and the consensus. Consensus, oirg, Sweet Tooth and bill18 all score 770. In the Honor Roll, only 3 people scored higher, all at 780. 4Sigma, Numbers Nerd and Veni Vidi Vici would also have made the honor roll, which required 730.

May answers
Spoiler:

A. 1NT, while also liking 3C
B. 1NT. Right for strength. Shows a stopper, but I do have 5. Nothing else appeals.
C. 3D. Wish I had a fourth diamond, but seems better than 2NT without a club stopper. Not tempted by 2C.
D. 3C. Maybe I'm too strong for 3C, but heart honors have limited values unless we're playing NT
E. 5C. I probably should have bid 3C non-forcing before. I have so much more than I might that I better bid a game now and hope.
F. 3H, even though we might miss a good 4S.
G. 3D. Need to start showing strength and spade support.
H. CK. I don't like it at all, but the alternatives are worse.

Three currently unanimous. All three of them might be the best available choice.

Changing my answer to G to dbl. I gave it some thought - a heart fit would be preferable given your hand being flat, and being the short trump hand. Can't think of what 4NT would really accomplish - won't be bidding a grand at teams.
