Kerry:
First of all I don't play Puppet, play Moppet Stayman wherein if I show five Spades then also have four hearts. Yes, finding a fit
in responder’s five-card major is more important than looking for three-card support for opener's five-card suit.

With five Spades and three Hearts one should ONLY use Jacoby Transfer over 2NT.

1NT - 3 Clubs (transfer)

3 Diamonds: Pass is weak

3 Hearts, 3 Spades is game forcing with shortness.

3NT shows club shortness.

4 Diamonds is 0314.


1NT - 3 Diamonds is showing 5-5 in the majors invitational
or better.

After 2NT - 3
3 - 3 or 3 does not show BOTH majors

3NT - 3
3 - 3NT 3NT is not a SMOLEN bid, has to be 3 or 3

Do not include 5-5 majors in the MUPPET convention.

Simply bid 3 over 2NT to show.
