1NT was 12–14. Your main objective over a weak NT at MPs in this partnership is still to intervene when possible, so partner's action could be light. Stronger hands (15+) would tend to start with double.

2 shows hearts + another suit. 5/4 or better, either suit could be the longer suit. If hearts and spades then spades will be longer (if 5/5 then can choose 2 or 2 spades + another, depending on suit quality/strength).

2 by you is pass or correct/passable relay; partner will show his 5+ card suit, which will involve passing (diamonds) or bidding 2/2/3.
2 would be to play, 2 natural, 2N is an invite with no fit for partner's hearts, 3 would be an invite with 3-card heart support, so you cannot bid it naturally.

There seem to me to be three obvious contenders, P/2/2N. I've reflected on this hand quite a bit, but I'd be interested to hear people's thought processes as much as their votes.

What's your call?
