In another part of the forest
I don't see how declarer can go down if his shape is 4-6-2-1. He will simply play for the diamonds to be 4-2, in which case a diamond ruff gives him 6 hearts, 1 spade, 2 clubs, and 4 diamonds. Therefore, I must assume his shape is 4-5-3-1. If ...

Oren's Bols Tip
Sorry, contract is 3NT as I'm sure you might have guessed. The bidding was a complex auction, not really relevant to anything. I was just telling a story.
You be the director!
I don't know the methods, but I would imagine that the 2 call asks West to bid his better major. If that is the case West did what he was supposed to do, so there is no UI issue as far as West's action is concerned. If ...
