What is opener's distribution? >2-2-3-6<

2c. Explain the reasoning for the
distribution. >Because opener didn't support
hearts, opener doesn't have 3 hearts.
Because opener did not bid 2 spades, opener doesn't have 3 spades. If either major suit had 0 or 1 cards,
opener would have at least 4 diamonds and would bid 3 diamonds. Therefore, opener must be 2-2-3-6.<

4c. Describe opener's spades? >A, Ax, or Kx: Opener doesn't have 3 spades

because you didn't bid 2 spades. Opener doesn't have 2 hearts because you
didn't

raise 3 hearts to 4 hearts. The 3 spade bid shows a spade
stopper. Therefore with

1 or 2 spades, the stopper must either
be an ace or king doubleton.<

What is opener's distribution? >1-3-3-6: 3
hearts shows 3 hearts. Because

opener didn't bid 3 diamonds, you have less than 4. If you only had 2 diamonds, you

would have 2 spades and would have bid 2 or 3NT over 2
spades. Therefore, you want

responder to place the contract in the best place.<
