Ok west Gib balanced reasonably 5diamonds] and 2 cards in opener's spades. But the description says 10-16 total points. If Gib had 16 tp surely they would already have overcalled on previous round of bidding.
So Gibs partner has a balanced 11 with 3 and invites.
Result 4X-2 on a combined 20 hcp with no singletons in either hand.

If i was writing the description for my balances it would include hands with a lot less than 9 hcp at least at mp.
Sarcasm is a state of mind

I have long wanted for balancing actions to be a lot weaker. Until that happens, tread lightly.

By the way, good double.
Please let me know about any questions or interest or bug reports about GIB.
