Danny Sprung's bidding problem: Q7 AQT62 K42 KJ2
dbl planning to rebid 1NT
Responding to snapdragon double with 2-5
AQ, xxxx, KTxxx, xx looks like an obvious 1 to me. AQx, xxxx, KTxxx, x looks like an equally obvious 2 to me. As for why you haven't seen it, Snapdragon does not come up all that often in the first place.
Responding to snapdragon double with 2-5
Not only can 1 be on 2, I think it is frequently on 2. With a known 8-card spade fit, opener would often be bidding 2 to prevent LHO from rebidding 2. The logic of the auction is similar to this more common one; 1 -- (1 ...

Negative Double opposite 1NT opening
It depends on colors. Plating 12-14, at white on white, i reopen on any hand with a small dub in their suit. At vul on vul you have to be more cautious.
Negative Double opposite 1NT opening
The weaker the NT opening, the more important it is to play negative doubles after a 1NT opening. I would refuse to play weak NT of any variety with a partner who insisted on combining them with penalty doubles.
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: AKQ862 QT6 A KT2
This is the source of the problem. You failed to show your values at the first opportunity, and you now have no way to catch up.
Jannes van 't Oever's bidding problem: T82 973 Q76 T653
If i thought 4 was making, shouldn't I have bid it the round before?
