Before you get too excited, this is a "Best Hand" tourney.
What does GIB North have for the 5NT call and what are reasonable bids by South?
Here's a couple of cryptic clues.

Turns out that North is telling me that it has an even number of keycards and a void.
2 is an integer, 4 is an integer and so is 0.

LOL. tho 4 is a waste of bidding space, the robot knows no different. but what else is there to bid except 4? I do not splnter bids with void.

I only splinter with a void, go through 2N with a stiff with a human partner

You are much more likely to be able to make a slam with a void, as opposed to a singleton.

I use 3NT over 1, 3 over 1 to show an unspecified singleton (next step asks for singleton). When opener doesn't have a slam going hand, this avoids information leakage, at least until the opening lead.

Triple jumps show a void (3NT over 1 shows a spade void).

With more high cards, I have a similar scheme to show singletons and voids over a Jacoby 2NT response.
