For several years, I've been puzzled by this:

You have 5-3-3-2 distribution with 12 hcp.

What is the distribution of the long suit's hcp?

The computations I have tried are certainly wrong. As the hand's total hcp rises, my computation of the long suit hcp seems chaotic.

I *suspect* that having 0 out of 12 in the long sun is very rare. But I can't prove it.

Does anyone know a reference? (I am not very interested a simulation.)
