Assume you play:

XX = Ten HCPs, and followed by a heart rebid can be interpreted as a limit raise with three hearts.
2H = Simple raise showing at least three hearts and weaker than a limit raise.
2N = Jordan, a limit raise showing four hearts.
3H = Weak support, protected by the Law of Total Tricks, it usually promises four hearts.

I'd like you to consider my bidding choice in this situation...which was 3H. My thinking was that if my partner has five hearts, he denies five spades, and so the total tricks must be at least 17 calling for a non-vulnerable three-level bid by us. Comments welcome...thanks.

What's your call?
