Do you use forcing pass in this auction?
Exactly. Your side has at least half the deck in high cards. Why should the opponents be able to take 10 tricks? Sure, they might have the right distributional fit to make, but there is no way you can determine that whatever methods you play. The odds are that when ...
Delicate Probe
I don't understand. It looks like you are talking about some different auction.

Finish this sentence
Probably anti-percentage. You probably need to hit partner with 5 clubs for the lead to succeed. Dummy doesn't have 4 hearts, and likely doesn't have 5 spades since no checkback. Declarer might have bid 2 instead of 1NT with 3 spades and a doubleton club. Thus, partner ...
