What is double?
Yes! 1+1+Double...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: KJ854 AK3 --- KQT64
Life is too short for such precise holdings.
David Yates's bidding problem: K6532 A82 85 K64
Was this a UI issue?
Aviv Shahaf's bidding problem: QJ KTx KQxxxx KT
At the table the scientific approach would have won the day. Partner's hand was: xx Ax AJx AQJ98x and LHO had a normal T lead from KT98x
Jeff Bayone's bidding problem: --- QJT9xxx AQTxx x
Alternative plan would be to walk the dog by passing and waiting for the opponents to settle in 4 (or 5) and then compete to 5.
Jeff Bayone's bidding problem: --- QJT9xxx AQTxx x
4 for now but will bid 5 if 4 gets passed back to me.

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: J43 AKQ92 KJ9 AT
The auction to 3NT was very tentative and already shows doubt. If partner has the wrong hand they don't need us to Redouble to know to run. The Double of 3NT also looks kind of speculative so there is a good chance the opponents will run to 4 ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: 9854 72 AKJT6 A6
This hand is very pure for Slam. If partner doesn't want me to accept with this hand they should not invite. I bid 5NT to give partner a choice between 6 and 6NT (but will probably also Pass if they bid 6)
