Donald Lurie's bidding problem: J4 J96 JT63 Q653
It would help to know if there was an agreement regarding 2NT.
What does it promise?

Even playing the multi-way 3 gadget, a partnership should agree on the difference between 1-1NT-3-3-3 and 1-1NT-3NT. Using the latter auction to suggest solid spades and the former to deny them seems like a useful distinction.
YBTJ (and Jury?) - Regional Swiss Teams
But North isn't "guessing" the final contract. South can exercise his judgment over the 3NT bid. Even if the simulation was completely reliable, it doesn't account for the fact that South should remove 3NT on some hands. For a simulation to be even somewhat persuasive, you would have ...
