Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: AKT96 AT54 3 A93
Yes, 4C and 4D should be heart raises and I would default to splinters but fit-showing is probably a higher frequency. This still doesn't help with xx KQxxxx xxx Kx
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: AQ A4 K9763 AT75
Double, with only 2S, never crossed my mind.
Charley Seelbach's bidding problem: 6 A2 AKQ32 AKT82
If we had a strong 2D I would bid it.

1D-2C and 1S-2H GF are major flaws in 2/1. Qx KQJxx xxx Kxx is an excellent slam and easy over 1S-2H-4D. Here you have a guess as x KJxxx KQx xxxx is pretty hopeless on a club lead.
Andy Stark's bidding problem: K5 AQ9743 5 AJ92
Whatever partner is up to I've got a pretty good hand and 5S should help partner place the contract.
Howard Sandler's bidding problem: x AKJT8 KJ Axxxx
2N gives partner a chance to define their 4th suit forcing. If it's a club raise great, a heart raise good, a pointy suit not good. If they bid 3N I'm done.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: 63 A975 Q9 AKQ85
This sure looks like a 2C opening to me. We played this way for years and missing the 4-4 major fit that a lot of Precision pairs are apoplectic about to require 6+ clubs for a 2C opening just hasn't happened in practice.
Mike Ma's bidding problem: AQ5 9743 7 K5432
This hand has gotten a lot better on the auction and we are ruffing with low trumps so it's 4H for me.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: A A32 A432 QJ432
I lead a low diamond.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: T73 AQJ5 Q743 83
I'd rather the opps bid 4H.
