Eventually described as single suited major


(ETA description not appearing properly - P's NT is 11-14)

As my team was self-destructing at Brighton, this hand came up (IMPs scoring).

W's NT can systemically be any 5422 or 4441 in the range.

When I asked S for an explanation of the 2D bid, he became quite flustered, and couldn't remember (despite the fact that they'd been discussing it about 30 seconds before, unfortunately, while I'd been focussed on recording the previous score - he was quite elderly). After a fair bit of thought he bid 3S, and N pulled fairly sharpish to 3N. She then said to me that 2D had shown a single-suited major hand.

What would you lead (ETA and why)?

My partner opened 1NT. (What range I apparently don't know.)

They made a 2 overcall which showed one major. A confused advancer bid 3 and then passed intervenor's 3N rebid.

Isn't hearts intervenor's suit?

I lead my 4th best diamond.

What was the agreed meaning of 3? If it's supposed to be a natural preference, declarer should have hearts, so a diamond lead looks normal.

Not sure why the descriptions I put in aren't highlighting. P's range for the NT was 11-14.

3S had no agreed meaning. S had clearly forgotten the system.

Diamond. Looks like North has hearts and South spades.
