Jay Barronen's bidding problem: 8 AT987 AK2 QJ85
Lots of questions Can partner have four hearts? Could his spade holding be the king? What do we know about his minors? Would he bid 2 with four diamonds and fewer clubs? Was my 3 control-showing?
What's the right defense?
What you are saying, I think, is that not every card can convey a firm message. There has to be a normal play. The three, partner's original fourth best, is the standard card to return.

Utility of a 3-card super-accept raise over Jacoby Transfers and a Strong NT
I dislike super-accepts in general. In my experience those -50/-100's are far too frequent, so I restrict myself to really good hands with 4-card support. I like to use 2N to show this, as it leaves room for a variety of maneuvers, according to taste.
Claim ruling poll
This was well before 2007. It probably happened in the 1970's or so. Eisenberg was also, obviously, playing in an event where, absent any problems, the claim would likely have been accepted.
