An interesting hand... advice appreciated...

In our Wednesday training match against the National team of Faroer this interesting hand came up.

Our agreements after a Multi 2D:

  • Natural overcall, max 16 hcp
  • 2NT: (semi-) bal 16-19
  • Jump overcall in Major: strong 6 card 16-18 hcp
  • 4 / 4:  5-5   / minor  (with 5 / 5m we pass first)
  • Dbl: (semi-) bal 14-15 (or 20+)

With my freaky but strong hand in South I decided to start with a double...     Followed by 3 in West as Pass / Correct..  

But how do we bid this hand in a decent way to arrive in a good 6?  (makes + 1 due to successful finesse...)

We played 6, luckily also making + 1...  Despite all our agreements we did not bid this well.  (Bidding too painful to mention...)

Any suggestions appreciated.
