Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is 3x - (pass) - 3y forcing or non-forcing
I presume that when responder has or his hand has to be strong enough to underwrite, respectively, 4 or 5. It seems to me that to bid to the 4 level with only 55 in the majors is quite risky unless responder holds a whale. I ...

Really? So you'd be happy to be in four opposite Axxx - xxx AKQxxx?
ATB
4 would indeed have a play opposite five small s and out (probably about a 5% play, but let's throw in a king or so to validate the comment). But that is no reason to bid it. Unless you have an agreement that 4 is based solely ...
