AG : 6H. Since neither 2H not 3H would be forcing, I've painted myself
into a corner, as is often the case with psyches.
(I must remark that, as has been said in another thread, you'd be
hard-pressed to find players who agree with the previous pass, making
the poll near meaningless.)

AG : I could bid 3C, of course, but what would it achieve ? (except
perhaps find 7D when partner jumps to 6).
