I'm a little confused as to when "transfers over a (could be doubleton) club" are allowed.
Jim Griffin's bidding problem: 4 KJ6 AK8 987432
Interesting followup: If you do bid 1, partner's response is 3. What then?
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: K54 AT KT KQJT72
I'm bidding 2 to do two thing: (1) Find out if opener is min/max and (2) Let pard know when I bid rkc/ next time (and hypothetically follow up with a specific king ask if we have them all) that I have 6+ so he ...
John Diamond's lead problem: QT8652 Q86 KT9 7
I'm not playing partner for a card when he didn't DBL 3. It can't possibly be right to lead a here, so that leaves a (surely partner has something there) or my stiff (which could be the winner).
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: xx x Axxx Qxxxxx
I much prefer to just play 1m-3m=Mixed raise and give up the ultra weak bid. I'd rather have a semi-constructive bid available to a garbage bid.

Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: J94 KJ J9 AKJ732
I'd be afraid to have an unfortunate accident if I cue bid 4 (partner thinks I'm making a delayed raise with a doubleton and passes). 4NT is straightforward enough and will almost surely get us all the info we need to know.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: Q63 AKJ82 AK2 A5
I'm a little worried that partner might misinterpret 5 (as well as thinking I don't have the A). Surely on this auction 5 is a cue bid. If partner bids 5, I'll take my chances at 7.
