Matchpoints. Partner's 4 was very slow. The partnership has the understanding that over a natural 1 that 2NT would be  and , but has not discussed the meaning of 4NT here. The partnership has the understanding that the auction 1-P-3-4 would be Michaels, but has not discussed the meaning of 5 here. The partnership has not discussed the meaning of 5 here. Double would be takeout-ish.

Pass. My partner's hesitation suggests a - two-suiter. Bidding 4 might get us to a better contract, and I may not take such an action with the UI.
Pass. Partner's hesitation suggests a semi-balanced hand with relatively short and some tolerance. Bidding 4 would get us to a better contract, and I may not take such an action with the UI.
4. Partner's hesitation shows a very strong hand, but not quite good enough for 5, and without tolerance. Passing would be based on the UI, and I may not do so.
4. I have seven and one , and I hope will play better. The fact that partner did not double argues against this bid. I take my chances.
I would never have been in this position, because I would have bid 3 on the last round.
