Jon Green's bidding problem: K865 A84 6 AJ842
So maybe he's 3=4=3=3 with strongish holdings in the unbid suits. Even with a double diamond stop they may be able to set up the 4th and 5th diamonds in time to beat 3NT and I don't think a double stop is guaranteed.
Jon Green's bidding problem: K865 A84 6 AJ842
After 1C 1H 1S 1NT a 2H bid would show a non-minimum thus the immediate raise. The point of the diamond footnote was that he usually won't have diamonds that are equal or longer than hearts when he has a game forcing hand.

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Qxxx AJTxx ATx x
How about MI? I suspect East missed the opening bid and thinks West opened a Precision 2D.
Jon Green's bidding problem: 74 JT94 T8742 A6
Call it balancing or reopening. To me there isn't much difference. The thing is that if he passes the auction is over. So if it's right for us to compete it's up to him.

I bid 4 at the table but it was not a good spot. Partner may have had less than he might have but he was balancing against 3 when he bid 3.
Reaching 7NT after Exclusion
BTW isn't this scoring format totally insane. It seems to have some popularity in the UK but it would drive me crazy to play it. At IMPs we want to play as safely as possible, at matchpoints we are often going all out for extra tricks. Those differing objectives ...
