PlayOK has been on a void-dealing kick. Partner opens 50 in first seat; RHO passes. You hold:

Your call?

I decided to pass. Obviously, can't give meld, and either I have awesome trump support for my partner...or I'd risk running into a HUGE misfit. And playing this kind of hand is often very hard; your trump suit will get exposed very quickly most of the time.

So what would be your thinking, and choice?

EDIT: I said a void-dealing kick. 3 of them in just a few games. The probability of getting a spade void is very simple to compute; choose any 20 cards from the 60 non-spades, divided by the total number of hands, choose 20 from 80. Multiply by 4 to cover all 4 suits. The answer is a bit less than 0.5%...or about 1 every 200 hands.
