Bridge sometimes is very strange!
I did not tell nor ask you what are you going to put for a second spade from dummy.
Yes you are in a sort of squeeze in the second trick.
It seems that a good solution is to dump a CLUB.
East correctly assumed that you have 4 hearts. In such case a DIAMOND SHIFT makes problems.
If we have to finesse in hearts we MUST WIN THE ACE. If we assume Lefty has the heart queen (which probably gives 3 clubs in hands if E) we must play J in the fourth trick!!!

It is important that you play at MPs….

My hint is the following: How it is possible that W in unfavorables bids? Probability that he has void in hearts is close to 50%. And it is not easy to play hearts at 0-4 division…

Does he propose me the choice between hearts and a minor?

My pd has void in spades (at MPs such T/O double is possible) while S should have void in clubs.

Thanks Brad and Gregory for discussion in a very difficult topic!!!
My “solution” is the following.
Pd has at most: 2 hearts, 2 spades and 3 clubs. So he has at least 6 diamonds.
So I must pass!!! Additionally i have very good first lead: A!!!

If you cashed 5 rounds of hearts and no diamonds appeared - cashing diamonds seems to be ineffective since you can not establish them…

Without any agreement: pd's pass means that he didn't has a safe bid!
How can I reason from there?

Penalty would be non-standard. It means: points, that gives my pd maximum 2HCP.

Serge is right in sense that large part of field automatically bids 1N. The latter contract seems to be easier for the hand and gives better score if we take 7 or 8 tricks for both contracts.
This is why our situation is difficult.

I wanted to put it at Intermediate Forum, but let it be here…

That's why doubler must think twice or 3 times if he has 4 spades and 3 hearts. HEARST HAVE PRIORITY.

It seems that pd with 5 spades and 4 hearts has to say 3 with a weak hand. Over the double.

After 3N W has an easiest lead: Start the better major!

Does 1N say something about spades (which S supposedly holds)?

It is good to have some forcing gadgets in this position.

The only advantage (I see) of this line is a possibility that E will enter with A. This possibility is extremely low probable when it was nearly established that declarer has 3 diamonds. From this point of view Michal Czerwonko proposal is better founded, since declarer can have 4+ diamonds in the second trick.

This has pluses and minuses. Disadvantage is that they (both) will have maximum information about the hand.

You need an analysis. I play a figure of club without an analysis. The only problem I have is: which figure?
