COUNTING ON YOUR FINGERS

TEAMS. 
DEALER SOUTH, ALL VUL.

Here’s the balanced 18-count that you received as South:

♠ A97
K3
AK65
♣ A542

It has no intermediates but only “top cards” (three Aces and two Kings). You open 1 and when North responds 1, you rebid 2NT. You then deny three-card support in Hearts by bidding 3NT over 3♣, and see the bidding tray come back with a 4 bid by partner.
