Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: QJT2 AK A8 A8764
2 WAS game-forcing, sorry for not clarifying originally.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: QJT2 AK A8 A8764
3 spades. Unlikely to be with 6 hearts. Could be with 5 diamonds.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: QJ85 --- KJ8743 J84

Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: Q732 A5 KQJ86 KJ
GF hands with 4/6m would Stayman and then bid the minor if no heart fit was found. So 8-card fit is guaranteed.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AQJ3 A AKT AK874
Because bidding 2, 3, and finally 3 to show your rough (but accurate) shape gets you perilously high in bidding space...and you still don't have your full strength off your chest. Some clearly believe it's worth misleading partner a bit on shape to get ...
