NS play a (mostly) natural system. The 2 bid in the second round strongly suggests 5-4 in the minors, although a 1 opening followed by a 2 rebid may be made on rare occasions with 4-5 shape and minimum if the diamonds are strong and the hand does not look notrumpish.

The 3 bid is invitational. If it matters, 2 over 2 would have been constructive (something like 9-11). Other potentially relevant rebids by responder are basically normal: 2 artificial and gameforcing, 2NT and 3 natural and also invitational.

Partner broke tempo before jumping to 3, maybe 30 seconds. As in the first part of this series, I am interested in what the UI suggests. More precisely:

When a brief poll was conducted, Pass and 3NT turned out to be LAs. If you feel very strongly about another bid, we can add it to the LAs if you like.

Which calls would you disallow based on Law 16B because they are - in your opinion - demonstrably suggested over one of the LAs? (Please note, I am referring to the existing laws, not what you might want them to be instead.)
