Tx Doug. I set the OP. My estimate of partner holding the Q was 7/(25+7) = 21.88% which is close to your sim result. I was not sure whether the A was a similar probability (your sim shows that it is quite a bit less).

Tx Gordon. I intended the OP as being about the opening lead (I should have been clearer). In this case, you would have no info about the presence of other Jacks in Dummy.

Ben, what would a 4 bid mean in your preferred system?

Richard, this was how our opps bid the hand against us. We did not ask about the X.

Side question. Does 3 here show a stopper or ask for one?

Presumably X here is a support X, promising 3 cards in ?

Perhaps because almost everyone else will open (4) with a 12 count

North's hand was J76 JT9 AQT8 K86

I confess to being surprised at the result of this poll, currently 51% for X and 49% for Pass. I expect E/W to have reasonable values for bidding to 3 at this Vulnerability, which does not leave many values for partner to hold. Also partner is a passed hand. Clearly I have much to learn about this game :)

Is 3 here forcing?

I would expect 4NT to show 2 places to play

Richard, many of us play 4 as forcing, so no need for us to jump to 5. Do I recall that you play 4 as constructive but non-forcing?
Edited to add “no” prior to “need”

I expect 5 to be exclusion Blackwood - seems perfect

ACBL (and Irish) required announcement policy is to state “may be short” for a 1 opening that may contain only 2. I suspect other regions have similar announcement policies

I was afraid that 4 could be natural. Many clearly think otherwise.

I always thought that the sum of the lengths of opening 1 level bids was 16, but 5433 = 15. I'm confused…

John, the OP was based on a semi-forcing 1NT response

And I think 3NT is also making. Do you see defence to 3NT?
