Partner and I are sitting NS and that was our actual auction.  First off, there are quite a few questionable bids here.  Focusing on our side, N free-bidding 2 seems likely to be wrong, when a fit is there and s are so weak.  Nonetheless, assuming N bids 2, what should N expect 4 by S to mean?  Is 4 strong?  Preemptive?  What alternatives were there for S?
