Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
What about 3, what's the purpose of that? You are being too nice to South.
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: AKJ9732 --- AJ53 K5
Whatever I do, a majority of the time this gets back to me at the 4 level, partner being silent. I am more comfortable with double then 4 rather than 1 then either double or 4.
ATB
Agree with Richard, my first choice is 3, not a second double (which I would bid without a 5-card suit).
2M or 1N?
Abstained and flagged (as it is just a bidding poll). However, I am curious as to what the 2NT reply is supposed to cater to.
Giovanni Bobbio's bidding problem: xx Jx Axx AK9xxx
Bidding on was a huge winner. Partner held: void AQxxx xxx Txxxx With Kxx onside you take all the tricks. 5 is down 1. Even with the K offside it would take a lead to beat 6 and the opps make 5 anyway.

Giovanni Bobbio's bidding problem: A3 AKT854 Q75 A4
Partner held: Jx, Jx, Axxx, Jxxxx

Incomplete explanation of an alerted bid
It appears that West needs both bridge and ethics training.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: AK862 A T8432 AK
If partner bids 3NT over 3 I definitely expect him to be 2=3 in my suits and will just bid 6NT. Else RKCB. Doesn't seem to be very problematic for your system.
