If you can give me the parameter that you want i can do a computer only DD sim.

if you have 7H how many pts
if you have 6H how many pts
if you have 5H how many pts

deduce one point for 5332 and 6322 (with 2 clubs) add one pts for 64?? 74?? 55??

I wont do suit quality however (sicne its too time consuming)

I play weak Nt and even in 10000+ bracket players dont have sufficiently good forcing pass agreements.

Common example

1NT—(X)—XX—(P) (XX is sos 2 suiter)
2D—-??……………(2D i prefer to )

ive seen my opps reaching terrible contracts i nthis spot or simpyl not doubling us often enough.

Ive made a DD sim and looked at 200 hands where 3C and 3H were the normal actions and game was making 103, down 97. So im now convinced you need to bid game even in MP but its close.

In MP pulling 1Nt to play 2m is not so frequent IMO.

If opener jump when he is maximum you will avoid the 3 level when responder is inv and opener is minimum (passed hand system).

I play mostly imps.

“3♠ is a slam drive” Agree but with what type of hands ?
2S followed by a serious cue (or by cue and asking for rkc) will also be a slam drive.

“♠ here shows extra values (that is, some slam interest) and very good spade support–KQx would be typical. That hand type can be very hard to show playing 2/1.”

Good hand with good trumps are the easiest hand to bid in bridge. If you play that 3S show good trumps and a very good clubs than I find it a sensible agreement.

Hand where the clubs are not solid just do better with 2S since you will know opener shape.

AFAIK many players use 3S as asking for a control, a hand with good clubs (edited) that says “I dont care about your shape because ive got tricks in my hand”.

Few use 3S as a splinter (I do). I strongly believe that showing one vs 2 in partner suit is a great information.

What exactly is 3S supposed to show here ?

If you think 2H doesnt show 6 (I agree) than if south pass north will probably pass 3C with a 5224 hand (perfect hand to X 2) and you will defend 3C in a double fit hand.

Well you can use 4S for picture jump (but this pair didnt) or just never use 4S (wich is jsut lazy IMO). IDK if this pair is using 3NT non-serious or not.

So far its the commenters who are resulting not N/S, N & S didnt make any comment on what contract they would like to reach or if 6 is good or not.

They just strongly disagree with each other. This particular hand was from a bidding practice so its of little importance agreeing for the future is the goal.

N/S dont really care about the result of this hand, but they totally disagree on how it should be bid.

IMO 4 is a much better bid than 3 but I agree that the hand is a minimum 4.

It mostly show a poor understanding of the word ethics.

I remember the golf example that was discussed on the previous ethics vs laws debate but there was another one in the Winter olympics.

IMO 4H should be a 6-6 or a 6-5. So 4NT cant really be to play so its should be a rare perfecto 22(54).
