After partner has bid two suits, responder may choose to play in the first suit bid despite the fact that he is longer in the second.

West bids 2 rather than passing 2 for several reasons:

1. If East has a good hand (one almost worth 3 over 1NT), game may be on.

2. If East has more hearts than diamonds, as is certainly possible, a 5-2 fit may play better than a 4-3 fit.

3. At matchpoints, if both 2 and 2 are making, the difference between 110 and 90 may be crucial.
