 South made a strong jump take out, and 3NT was "minimum, but not hopeless".After 4D and 4H (club control) south launched RKCB and then bid 5NT.North huddles and bids 6H (no minor suit king).  This is not exactly what did happen at the table. But on a forum, it was questioned that 5NT was a good call in such a position, because of the hypothetical huddle by North. Would south be allowed to bid 7H here?Would he be allowed to bid 6S (asking for the queen with 6NT as the negative reply)?Is the "I was looking for 7NT argument" valid or is it just "self serving" and should not be taken seriously.I suppose this is a pure "poll" case myself. Is it?On the forum after 45 replies, 7% passed, 66% bid 6H, 14% 6S, and some stray votes for 6NT and 7NT.   PS I did make new lines in the text. But the editor on BW is terrible and compresses the text removing all new lines making the text hard to read. I'm sorry for that. :(
