Jim Houghton's bidding problem: AK432 Q8 QJ7 QT9
It might not be, but you will be down a bunch in 2N, the most popular alternative. Better -180 than -300 (or worse if east finds a double).
Bas Van Der Hoek's bidding problem: KQJT98 --- A7543 42
At this vul. pard will know I have a strong playing hand with limited defense.
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: KQ J7 AKJ52 T874
Seems clear to bid, as both sides have a 9-card fit (at least). Expect pard to correct to 4D if that is his minor.
Ron Lel's bidding problem: AK984 Q AT2 AKT8
Don't need much from partner to have good play for 3NT. Pass if opponents vul.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: x xx AJ7xxx ATxx
Pick a slam - 6C or 6D.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: QJT976 4 Q9632 8
They haven't made it yet, and sacrificing could be too costly if partner lacks diamond help. Other EW pairs might not be in 3N.
Goran Cekol's bidding problem: Q AJT KT7654 AK7
My hand is playable in 3 suits, and the overall strength compensates for the lack of a 4th heart. If pard bids 2N (Lebensohl), I'll bid 3D.
David Caprera's bidding problem: ATxx xxx Kxxx Qx
What else?
Guillaume Fauconnier's bidding problem: 7 AKQ84 AJ9 Q643
What does South show? Can he be bidding out his pattern with 4351? Or would he have bid 3H at his second turn? Slam could depend on his club holding.
