The Most Amazing Grand
The auction wasn't given in any analysis - but at our table started with 2 2 x 4; 5 p 6 p; p 6 Take what you will from South's bidding, but you may be able to envision the position; or even ...
1 1; 3N to show a running suit is a good way to get there
Playing a 2/1 sequence, I don't see the rush to bid 1 p 1 if I can instead set a GF. It stops lurching auctions like this one and 1 1; 2 3 gf - which is equally ugly. Playing 2 as ...

An inspiration from "size ask or clubs"
It's better to play as Steve does above, having 2N as both minors weak, s weak, or s strong. 5-5 minors strong should be elsewhere (as 3 is commonly used as puppet, it's also common to play 3 as GF 5-5 in the minors)
What’s Your Plan?
The alternative to flannery is to open 3NT, as mentioned above. No need to worry about missing game then :)
What’s Your Plan?

What’s Your Plan?
I can open 3NT to show 11-15 HCP and 5 + 6, which seems more important to me than a gambling 3NT
An interesting slam
Leading 3rd from 6 is leading 3rds & low, not thirds and fifths.
So... what does an in tempo double of 7NT look like?
Glubok's partner had to wait for Joe to finish telling the leader that declarer had a void before he could made his comment. It's not considered polite to talk over others at the bridge table, or double them after they've had a misunderstanding.
