Thinking he holds something like 4-0-4-5 or maybe even 3-0-5-5 with the intention to reverse in the minors but we stole his bid and was bidding like this to seek out a potential grand.

Huh, so is 6nt one of the choices being offered, I would have thought he was insisting on a suit contract despite our strong indications to the contrary.
There is no point to being in 6♣, nothing much to ruff in short suit. Ruffing some ♥ in 6♦ might be very usefull but you have to contrast that with the chance of getting a bad diamond break when 6nt might be cold.

♦ can not be 4-4, he would have directly raised your 2♦, unless 2♣ was not a gf bid.
Sorry Phil, this is also one of the hands i watched and it is hard not to be influenced from knowing what your pd has. But i would probably bid what u did at the table.

The only thing we can get from a suit contract vs 6NT is to ruff a club in hand. And that will only happen playing in hearts opposite stiff 10 or queen. Partner knows we have 5.
