The lost cause of the Jacobyites

You play "standard" Jacoby 2NT (opener's 3M shows a balanced non-minimum, other 3-level suit bids are shortness, 3N is an intermediate balanced hand, 4-level bids are a second suit, and 4M is a minimum).

Dealer West, NS vul, matchpoint scoring.

Opener's 4 shows a minimum hand without any shortness and no second suit. The 5 response shows 3 key cards, so !AK and !A.

This an online ACBL speedball game with an intermediate strength field.

Please choose from one each of Answers 1-2, 4-5, 7-9

ADDED:  We do not open very light.  Fixed broken handviewer link. This is speedball, not suicide ball.  Most of the field is bidding 'normally'.

Seriously, folks, why are you choosing #3 and #6? (Or is this an artifact of having to pick 3 answers and wanting to abstain on one or more questions?)
