Blind Faith
Don't you have 11 tricks without any spade finesse? Two spades, three hearts, four diamonds, and two clubs. Just knock out the heart. After that is done, then decide how to play the spades. If the spade finesse had lost and a club came back, you might go down ...
Lauritz Streck's bidding problem: 96 T64 9542 A862
If I was going to bid last time it would have been 5.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AKQ87 A752 Q98 4
Right, I do not want to play a slam contract in hearts, give partner Jx Kxxx AKJxx xx for example. Thus I do not like the negative double here.
AI and Human Consciousness
It's more interesting to consider how to get the black pieces where they are from the starting position, or to consider the minimum number of moves needed to reach the end position.
Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: x AQxxx Axx Kxxx
Partner showed A K K A, that's 14 HCP. He could have had the Q instead of the Q and 7 has no play. 6 has to be right.
Floyd McWilliams's lead problem: 763 QT62 97543 8
"With length, lead length". One example: http://csbnews.org/a-robsons-tip-with-trump-length-lead-length/?lang=en
Nicholas France's bidding problem: AK52 A732 Q84 A4
With a pickup partner just bid 3 as partner might misinterpret a minor suit bid as showing a long minor.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: T9765 AK 72 AQT6
KQJ xxxx xxx Kxx is within the realm of possibility, but so is Kxx Qx Kxxxx xxx.
Another 3NT
I like this line. You have a lot of chances.
Falling Apart
Try playing the Keller convention. It'll save you some energy. Or you could try methamphetamine.
