Problem


West North East South
  Pass 2♠* 3♣
3♠ Dbl Pass ?
       

* spades and a minor

North passed. East opened with 2♠, an artificial bid, which means a weak two-suited hand, promising spades and a minor. South overcalled 3♣. West advanced to 3♠. North doubled. North`s double means North must have strength.

What should South bid?

Vulnerable: North/South

Contract: ?

Often the contract of 3NT is beaten because the declarer overlooks and defense finds a weakness in another suit rather than the obvious one – which defense has bid. After all sy bidding NT after the opponents have found a fit means the declarer is confident that his stopper holds.
