Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KQ xxx xxx AT9xx
The hand you have to ask yourself would partner bid again with is Axxxx AKxxx x xx. And I think the answer is no. So maybe I should join the 3 ‘ers.

Partner was supposed to take a different call earlier in the auction if that's his hand.
ATB Another Missed Slam
North is a game force opposite a 1 opener in my opinion and I play with people who open lighter than most. I'm still not sure I would get to 6 and don't feel great about being in 6
A loser-ruffing squeeze?
I score 9 trumps and 3 red cards or 8 trumps 3 red cards and the K, all without a squeeze

Bridge Winners is Depressing
Well at the Vegas nationals in 2014, Oren and I did walk into a bar. I hadn't been carded all week (I was 20 at the time, so was he), but lo and behold Oren lowers the average apparent age of a group by several years. The whole party ...
Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
How about "South should have balanced with something other than double" rather than "How can you balance with a 7 count"? Not that pass with the north hand is clear.
How to continue?
They both sound like suit preference to me.
Check Yourself
"We can easily cancel with XX requesting a choice..." That is until your partner with their balanced 6 count bids 3nt and it goes smash.
