Play problem

As warned by older more experienced souls, it turns out that 1) having a job, and 2) having a wife (a bridge-supportive one at that) is quite bad for my bridge-playing (and Bridgewinners-posting) frequency. Therefore it was a pleasure to play in the Webber Cup this weekend with my partner Tony Disley, and teammates Paddy Murphy and Mark Roderick. The sun was out (this being Wales, a non-trivial event); the curtains were drawn.

We eventially won by 0.32 VPs over seven full Round-robin matches (12 boards each). Partner and I played reasonably well, but with more bidding misunderstandings than before. So no surprise there.

One of the various unexpected contracts we reached was 3NT on the following deal. How would you play after a low heart lead to the ace and continuation? Click NEXT for the precise spots. Opponents play normal leads.

Note for the bidding, your 2 is game-forcing but may only be 2+ if balanced, while 2 guarantees six.
