IMPs

1D is precision, showing 11-15 HCP and 2+ diamonds

1NT is a transfer to clubs, showing a club suit with undefined strength. E will usually accept but is not forced to if they hate clubs (void/singleton) and have a better rebid like rebidding diamonds.

2NT now shows an invitational hand that has a club suit. opener will typically pick one of: pass, 3, 3N, but can obviously make some other call of their choice

 

Looking at the hands, it certainly seems right to be in 3NT red at imps. However, both sides had reasons for not pushing to 3NT. West felt that they didn't want to blast there opposite a nonfitting minimum and 2NT also gave the opportunity to come back to 3C if desired or find a club game if E was particularly shapely. East felt they had a 4333 that was close to a min.

Both are curious what people think and what they might have done differently.
