This is a Precision auction

2 is 11 - 15 HCP with 6+ cards in ; its possible to also have a 4 or 5 card major
2 asks about opener's hand
3 says opener has no 4+ card major and has a weak hand

The doubt comes now: does responder, knowing 25+ HCP in both hands, should take a shot at 3NT? Or instead should bid 5?
Or do you have any other idea?

The problem is that responder has no codified way to check if hearts are properly stopped in order to play at NT: 3 from responder now would mean she was slamish in clubs, while 3 or 3 would mean 5+ cards, natural and game forcing..

One last question: would you rebid diferently if this was a pairs event?

What's your call?
