Double Trouble
How do you show partner you have some cards to show but you don't know what to bid?
Jack Spear's bidding problem: JT9432 432 Q2 J2
Spades don't seem like they are running. Also, if spades can be established there might be a problem of getting to dummy. However, any key finesses are likely onsides. So I think four spades is the better shot at making.
What is 4NT This Time?
With ♠AQJ10x, ♥xxx ♦Kxx ♣Kx, one would bid three spades to emphasize good spades and then bid diamonds to show help. Bidding 3D after a game force suggests better trumps especially when opener can only have a four card suit. Further, bidding 4NT after supporting diamonds definitely means diamonds are ...
What does 3H show in this auction?

Adam Grossack's lead problem: T62 AQT854 T J76
I would have doubled 3NT. Clearly, RHO is taking a gamble. If I guess the wrong lead I am getting a crappy board anyway. Further, doubling 3NT will probably make RHO run if he is trying something cute.
A Monegasque situation
What does 3C show? I would think it shows a good club suit but it is not forcing. Counting six club tricks and two aces one would think it is clear to bid 3NT when all that is asked is partner contribute a trick in addition to his club suit ...
Table presence?
Instead of leading the heart seven from dummy, why not lead the heart jack? Isn't it easier for RHO to cover with the queen? RHO doesn't know you have the ten and nine of hearts. But if I did play the heart seven and RHO hesitated I would ...
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J74 AKJ982 AT4 6
S A H xx D x C KQJ109xxxx
Dr Ayan Chatterjee's bidding problem: KJT AKQ5 AKT9 Q6
Bidding just 3D on a 22 count is just too feeble.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: T93 --- T98764 9652
The issue of the hand would seem to be what is the best for the partnership over LHO bidding four hearts. I would bid four diamonds now that could lead to a profitable sacrifice in five diamonds or pushing the opponents up a level where they can be set.
