2 = Multi, weak 2 in a major OR 21-23 (semi)-balanced.

2 = pass with spades, invite opposite hearts

2N = 21-23 (semi)-balanced

3 = 5-card Puppet

3N = <3 spades, <4 hearts

 

From your perspective as South: you have a combined 33-35 HCP so are definitely going to be in a small slam. A heart fit has been denied but you may have a club fit still, and if so then 6 may well be much better than 6N.

On the actual hand hearts were 3-3 and so 6N was fine. But how do you find 6
