Best use of 2NT here
It can be somewhere in between. 2MT pick a minor, and if opener bids clubs, you correct to 3 to show weaker diamonds than immediately bidding 3. You lose out on hands with constructive/ invitational here, provided you are not playing Negative freebids or transfers over 1 ...
Another Humpty Dumpty Bid?
To me it has to be a cuebid. Most defensive bidding methods are based on opponents' bids being logical. 2 doesn't promise they have a fit. If we don't have a fit in and I don't think I am really free bidding 2 ...
Plan the play in 6NT
I have potentially 4 menace here: 9, T, T and 7. If any of these menace is positioned to the left of the opponent threatened (i.e. behind its busy card, you can play for a compound squeeze type of position, and make this 100 percent. If this premise is ...

What you think is the best agreement for this sequence?
I like it to be and . To me, here, finding the right strain is more important than slam trying (Game before slam), since doubling of 3 is usually wide ranging, and does not necessarily promise 4 cards in both majors.
Best Line
run all trumps, pitching a S and a C. SA. low to D9. If lost to DT. win the SA return. DK, CA, DA.
