Daniel Landau's bidding problem: A62 A4 A876432 3
Yes I agree, it was mostly just my own sanity check.

Is 3d forcing?

If partner had doubled 7h, what would that mean?
Captain's Diary, Day 2: Lebanon, Poland, Monaco
The 6 slam is quite a hand. The south hand is actually squeezed in 3 suits. I pondered if a double dummy low club lead would set the contract, since this would seemingly hinder declarer's ability to ruff a diamond (this is actually not true on the layout ...

Daniel Landau's lead problem: 72 AQ93 86 J9432
2n was natural. Presumably X would have been penalty for one of the suits but this was not explicit. This was a pickup pair on BBO.
