The standard meaning of this bid
As far as I know, the standard situation where the bid means "we have 9 tricks if you have spades stopped" is as a direct overcall, i.e. (1) - 3. Well, first may be is not so standard and second a more precise definition should be "we may ...
Gabriel Fractman's bidding problem: KJx Ax AKQ9xxx J
True. But the risk of bidding 2 is that partner can raise. And 5 may be down (as it was the case).
Gabriel Fractman's bidding problem: KJx Ax AKQ9xxx J
Thank you for all the answers. At the table 3NT was the winning choice, partner had the hoped/expected club complement. Of course it had a risk but also other options (maybe a different risk if you bid 3).

Double by responder after 2 club opening
Thank you for all the answers and comments. And for the correction in the title as well :).
Art Korth's bidding problem: AQT982 --- AJT9xxx ---
No matter how many times you rebid your s, partner will never play you for 6 after opening 1. As no system will reasonably describe a 7-6, I prefer to open 1 and rebid s forever.
Nikos Delimpaltadakis's bidding problem: KQ94 T3 --- AKQ9642
Then East surely mis-clicked ....
