5NT is fine but since I plan to bid 7 regardless of the answer I will just go ahead and bid it. I'm not taking a chance on a bidding misunderstanding to reach 7NT.

I would open if we open most 11's, otherwise pass.

Agree that 1 is forcing opposite a real response but think 2 might be based on VERY good 4315 or 4405 willing to GF opposite 4 or 5 point hand. I would also open 1D

Would like a little bit better hand to o/c 4 bagger. With this hand partner will likely bid if we belong in the auction.

3 stop ask followed by 5 slam try over 3 level response. 4 over 4m response. Will bid 5 over opps' or partner's 4 bid.

What I think I can make, partner will not take out to s.

I don't like to pass and then guess later. If I open 2 then maybe partner will raise, if not then I will bid the appropriate number of s.

Did I miss something? Is the majority playing that 2 is stronger than 3?

I think 3 is a complete waste of time, you will have to guess over their most likely 3 bid. Double is even worse if they bid 4 before it gets back to you. 4 should not be preemptive in this sequence.

4, hopefully kickback but maybe splinter. I know, 5 may be too high (spade ruff) even if partner has 2 aces and 3NT may be the only game but I'll take my chances to try to get to slam.

I don't think you're wrong. If I played that 3 shows a max w/4 then I wouldn't bid it here. Since I play that it denies a max I would bid it. I guess I am agreeing with you but not sure.

I'm really glad all of us blind point counters have Gregory to explain to us the error of our ways. I personally have never heard that about jacks being overvalued.

Lynn meant the raise shows non-min. I play that it shows non-min or 4 card support.

I don't know of anyone who would treat 3 as non-forcing.

I would have bid 3 on the previous round. 3C is not forcing in my book.

Since this is not really a bridge problem I abstain

I would never want to play with anyone who would bid anything but 4
