S passes, west bids 1C, E bids 1S, S bids 2D, what should 3S show?, how about 3d?....would you consider W hand worth a game force or invitation?

Steve, Thanks that is really the heart of what i'm asking...
Mike Saltzman's bidding problem: AJT43 A763 --- QJT3
i posted this problem because i was curious what people would bid over 2nt...i didnt really get a good answer.... might need to repost this problem with what to bid over 2nt
Mike Saltzman's bidding problem: J9 3 AQJ8432 K32
we're playing 2/1 and there is no stopping below you still think this is a 2D bid?
Mike Saltzman's bidding problem: A A54 A953 AK932
we are playing 2/1, 1nt shows a balanced hand 6-10 hcps. pd can have 4cd minor in diamonds and or clubs if hand is balanced. 2c would be inverted.
A cooperative entry-shifting squeeze - D21 GNT
well done Howard!
Mike Saltzman's bidding problem: --- 84 KQJ987432 K7
Partner can count 13 tricks if no side losers. Partner's hand kqx AKQJ A AQxxx. without 5S q-bid you'll never find 7D's.
Expected Value
seems reasonable to play east for 3-4-4-2 distribution, and play to make.
