My preference is to play an immediate 4NT as blackwood, 0,1,2,3(,4) aces.

Was a hand I kibitzed, so unknown (to me). What I can add is that West would have opened any 11 HCP.

Maybe not on topic…but

“Editor Paul Linxwiler offers his opinion: ”For an experienced player to psych against someone they know to be inexperienced is profoundly unethical. ‘Stupid’ and ‘unnecessary’ can be added to the list of descriptors too."
