Poll: Did you find this site’s April Fool’s joke funny?
I pass no comment on how funny I found the joke. But remember, humour is a brilliant coping mechanism. And we need it.

Ambrose Mackie's bidding problem: Tx AQJT9 x KQJxx
From memory: Kxxx Kxxxx xxx x
Ambrose Mackie's bidding problem: Tx AQJT9 x KQJxx
AT THE TABLE . . . I bid 5 which was doubled and went two off for -300 (which was the maximum they could get). The winner this time is to pass. The opps can make 5 but not 4 and there is no chance they will escape to 5 ...
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: AK76 K5 QT63 753
Perhaps they won't but the only way to 100% guarantee that the opps won't play 4x is to fail to double 4.

4 guarantees 4S in my book. Still double though.
Simple Stayman Question
Andy: Yes, and I have always been surprised by this as invitational with 5-4 seems to be a technically better treatment. Mike: Not so in England.
Eddie Grove's bidding problem: AKJ975 --- K32 AJ75
Obviously double might not work well but there is no real alternative.
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: AK76 K5 QT63 753
FWIW I think 4 promises 4S
Is there a better way?
Played this for about 8 years and never heard this acronym (or even spelt out!) What's wrong with "5 card stayman"
