A hand came up last night in a BBO match with the opportunity for the holy grail of XXs.

I found myself in an odd position and wonder if others would know the correct answer, so created the poll below.

On the heavy side for 2N but we do play slightly higher range. In any case, the question now is simply is it better to play 7N or 5N XX (scoring-wise; aesthetically the opportunity to play 5N XX is tough to resist)? To cast your vote, bid what you would at the table (7N or XX). No peeking.

I have expanded the poll to include a small slam option as well.

5N XX + 2 BETTER than 7N making; 5N XX +1 BETTER than 6N making
5N XX + 2 BETTER than 7N making; 5N XX + 1 WORSE than 6N making
5N XX + 2 WORSE than 7N making; 5N XX + 1 BETTER than 6N making
5N XX + 2 WORSE than 7N making; 5N XX + 1 WORSE than 6N making
