Subjective probability
I agree - but IMO South with Axx - xx - Axxx - K10xx would/should have bid 1D so a NT contract can be played by N.

Subjective probability
I take the DK and play my spades. What does declarer discard? :)
What is the best opening?
With 4-4 in minors I open 1D cause then partner knows I have at lest 4 diamonds. If I open 1C partner only knows that I have at least 2 clubs. IMO it is better to show a suit than not show a suit.

Forcing ( but not game forcing ) Showing at least 5-4 in majors. I bid 3H.

Some Deals Are Just too Tough
Just play Raptor and W can bid 1NT showing at least 5+ in diamonds and a 4card major 10 -15 p. Raptor is a very underrated convention and 4 times more frequent than 1NT=15-17 in defensive.
