She's an expert player. Not quite national-level. We were playing transfers to the majors only so she would just have repeated the diamonds.

Also - your opponents had a big double fit in the majors and they got a top for letting you play 2D? That's some serious luck on their part.
C'est la vie. On another lead I might have gone down in 3N.
