Florian Alter's bidding problem: AQ4 AK97 AT4 AKT
We play 1H/S as 4+ forcing. We never felt in need to have such a kind of relay.
Florian Alter's bidding problem: 98 AKQJT765 T 86

Scary Dummy
1) Partner bid 2 over 1NT. With a minimum hand and no interesting shape he could have passed. 2) Strong hands in general are rare, yes. But here partner opened 1 and bid 2 opposite our 0-4, so it isn't unlikely anymore that partner has enough ...
Discarding Problem
Partner can't play the 9 on the second round, since you could have KQ doubleton. Apart from that, I think this approach is too restrictive. Sometimes you are forced to signal for something where you don't want to signal at all. Other times you wish to give a ...
Discarding Problem
The default agreement is suit preference.
