ATB - Wrong Spot
The hand you bid on is balanced. it remains balanced regardless of partner's hand. And if 5 is making then 3 x is certainly going for a pair or three And if he has 4 and a singleton then possibly, just possibly, he would bid again ...

Bidding problem What is your guess?
I dispute that contention. A reverse was not even forcing for the vast rank and file, and many, perhaps most, experts also.
