I'll put the entire hand on page 2, in case you are interested, but my question is about the meaning of East's possible calls at his second turn.

2C was natural, running from the double.  I don't know why North bid 2D, when he held AKx of clubs.

Not necessarily relevant, but EW play a 12-14 NT.

Matchpoints, club game

I wasn't happy bidding 2H, fearing it should be forcing.  I bid it anyway, all passed and after the hand was surprised that all three other people at the table thought it should not be forcing.  As it turns out, 2H is our maximum.

If I had held a somewhat better hand, but with less solid hearts, how should I bid?
