Silly methods preclude a sensible answer.

“We found that opening 1 with any 4 diamonds often lead to failing 3NT contracts.”

And what did we find, opening 1 with singletons?

As they say in America, I am like wow.

There is no explicit mention in their system notes, but I would think that 3 forcing by a passed hand is bordering on irrational.

If so, 3 was indeed an underbid.

With four aces and a king, and three trumps, West should drive to slam.

Slam in a 5-4 fit will generally play markedly differently to slam in a 5-3 fit.
