Mass is more than obvious at IMPs. Here 2 must be taken into account seriously…

4N is obvious but it has a disadvantage. After pd will bid his Minor they will have oportunity to bid 5. After direct 5 they will have less information.

Now 4 and 5 if they will go 4.

4, double and pass each with probability 33%.

Yes, double with 3 after pd's 3 is an alternative…

Very good analysis! 3 has a disadvantage, however. They can go to 4 if one of them has singleton in clubs.

My decision was also pass, which was minus 6. Not a tragedy. But then came a reflection: they can only go to 4 if they have good diamonds. In such a case we have real chances for 4.

I remember how Bridge Today was dying. It was extremely sad…

May be I explain my motif.
Yes, there exists a danger that after our 3 they will go to 4. But then we can bid 4, which has chances.

At IMPs one could consider simulation which contract is better: 3N or 4S for our side. At MPs such simulation has no sense since 620 > 600.

At IMPs K would be a serious choice. May be we can take 3 first tricks…

My opinion is the following.
For the moment computers are not experts. The reason is that they should address all those problems, which is difficult.
For situations when it is not clear which motif is dominant, humans have thousands of tips. It seems that computer players are far from stopping simulations in such playing positions.
I agree that we can not assume opponents' errors. But we can assume routine behavior from one hand and unusual behavior (when opponent see that there is no chance for him) from the other.

I haven't consider step by step or similar quizzes because they focus on the whole deal. Those kind of quizzes are extremely effective for didactical purposes.
We need here to specify which problem (or particular aspect) makes a given deal especially difficult.

This problem would be more challenging at MPs.

Queen seems to be better because we want to avoid an endplay…

3N is bad because they will easy find a clubs lead.

Declarer has to have a suit to establish. It only can be diamonds.
