I have some difficulty in constructing a hand where West's bidding makes sense.

If he had only three-card spade support and the values to justify further action, surely he would either double 3 or bid 3 depending upon relative suitability for defence/offence.

But if he had four-card spade support, would he have bid 2?

What do people think that West has?

West has only three spades
West must have four spades
Whatever he has, he shouldn't have bid this way
