Play a three no trump
Finessing the spades seems necessary if West has Jxx or AJx and only costs if the spades are Axxx vs Jx or Axx vs Jxx with the diamonds 6-2 (unlikely).
William Kochneff's bidding problem: Kx A A9xx AJ9xxx
I abstained because you forgot Dbl by East
Restricted choice?
This is what I originally thought as well: 3523 and 3424 are a priori more likely distributions for West. I wondered if it would compensate restricted choice somehow but no one except you mentioned it.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: A3 A QT7543 A654
Presuming 1 is forcing, partner should have hearts and nothing else. Something like xxx KQJTxxx x xx. We have 3 tricks but really nothing else useful. Pass for me
Who's to blame (note the accepted insufficient bid)
I'm guessing East wanted to make a responsive double, but he's a round late (and very light anyway). West already made clear he isn't interested playing in anything other than diamonds.
Defining a "Good Suit"
If the first suit is AKJxx, I would surely make this descriptive bid if my second suit happens to be QTxxx. If you were asking about the simultaneous and identical quality for the two suits, it will obviously have a higher standard, probably at least KJTxx.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 4 AKQ96 T543 QJ5
Opener's pass of 3 should show club values. Without those he must bid 4 since responder won't have stoppers in both blacks unless he has slam interest. So with pass opener is asking partner to decide the strain. I'd assume redouble by responder then just ...
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 4 AKQ96 T543 QJ5
Should only bid 3NT if you want that in your hand. I would certainly not like a spade lead through partner's stopper here.
Ugur Tas's bidding problem: QJ75 AJ A AKQJ92
3 looks cheap. Can still bid 3NT over 3, but it may trigger a 3 bid from partner with 4-5 in the majors
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 4 AKQ96 T543 QJ5
Pass should show our club values
