We play transfers , Stayman, redouble implies no fit, and is at least 10 high card points.

The question is:  is tthree hearts a transfer here or a natural heart suit.   What is three clubs?  Is it Stayman or a retreat to clubs?

I think the auction is analogous to one club by partner, pass by rho, two no trump (not forcing) by responder where transfers are not used.

Can anyone give me a link or a citation covering the hand in question.  Do you agree that three hearts in the diagram would be natural?
