Partner knows we have 3 for the X, so I X again… If partner has 5, he will decide what to do.
With 4 cards of I will be at ease of bidding 4

My best option is support X. If partner can compete to 3h its an extra trump

Would partner last train with kxx in hearts after no ctrled showed in hearts. Yet again give him a of spades k of hearts a of clubs at most. Were still short a ctrl.

I decline slam on this one. It is clear partner has Ah or kh or both but is looking for more which kqs and qjc is not enough with the s control we already showed. Also if partner has ak of hearts that doesnt leave him space for another ace or else partner would go to slam.

I like 3 with the proposed hand. In the case where partner has 54 in the majors, it is likely that you will want to be in a 7 cd spade fit if partner cant cover the diamonds. 3 also allows opener to bid his 5th heart and not think the partnership is heading towards a slam with his 55 when 2s has been bid.

So with 5242, you would bid 2N only if you have Hx in both suits, otherwise, you bid 3 or 3?

I think both 3 and 3 are OK, but requires agreement after a minor fit is agreed, since we first try to find 3N.

The full romex stayman that I play is:

3 = May have 5
–3 =Asks about and promiss at least 3
—-3 = Exactly 3
—-3N = Exactly 2
—-4x = Exactly 5, ctrl in that suit
–3N = To play
–4m = Natural
3 = Exactly 4
–3 = Relay to NT
—-3N = Forced
——4x = Fit H, ctrl in that suit
——4 = Inv to slam, Likely a ctrl
——4N = RKC in
–3N = Showing 4S, NF
–4N = Quantitative with 4S
3 = Exactly 4
3N = Exactly 5

There is one bid here that I did not consider which I like a lot: 5 That would be like a sort of last train asking for extra cards… Here it's clear I would be asking for side queens.

Singleton would have been worth a 4D call. I have inference of not singleton in the minors
