MP scoring.
Like it or not, you have bid 3 at 1st round. Now the bidding comes back to you. What is your choice now?

Pardon my choice of words, but my first reaction to this problem was "Is this some kind of joke?"

Pass is completely obvious.

Pass.

You generate a lot of action, they nevertheless they did game,
are you sure, that game makes, or that they they dont have the
values for a slam?

Why would I not like 3D on the 1st round over the double? Anything else would be an operation.

Why would I choose to make another bid over 4S? Anything else would be an operation.

I hate to agree with the others (too boring <grin>), but a Pass seems obvious. I assume 5D is a good sacrifice (else, why the problem?) but that doesn't change my opinion that after preempting, there is no reason to give the opponents a second bite at the apple.

If 5 should be bid, partner should have bid it, I've shown what I have, no reason to bid again.

Or it could be an ethical problem?

I know those taking part in bidding panels soon learn the folly of predicting unanimity, but I do wonder whether we will find anyone who doesn't vote for passing 4.

With this type of hand it's anybody's guess whether partner was thinking of bidding or doubling, so I don't think bidding is necessarily suggested.
