Sorry about the prior bidding, if you think it should have gone differently you can always abstain and comment or move on.

Partner's pass over 2 does not deny values. But he would have reopened with double with 4, so you can forget about that hand. And he would have been expected to bid 3 with a good 7-card suit and a poor hand. Finally, his double of 2 would have been penalty, showing length and strength in the suit.

Your options here:

Double - cooperative penalty (partner is allowed to pull with a defenseless wonder, although what he might pull to given our other agreements is anyone's guess. Perhaps 2NT.

2 - suggesting a trap pass of 1 with 4. Of course RHO has suggested holding 4 and LHO and partner have both denied holding 4.

2 natural, NF

2NT - suggests a minimum trap pass, but unfortunately also suggests a diamond stopper.

Pass - not allowed, the redouble means that we do not defend undoubled below 2NT.

3 - demonstrating partnership trust.

What's your call?
