Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: AJT54 K76 AQJ87 ---
.
4-4 OR 5-4?
We didn't have support doubles 40 years ago.
4-4 OR 5-4?
My dad and me held this pair of hands between us, a long time ago, playing Precision: Axxx AQ10xx xxx x opposite xxxx KJx AKQJxx void I wonder how many pairs would find the best spot after a 1D opening, a 1H response and a 2C overcall, with no opposition ...

ATB - Wrong Slam
Strain over level might be a good general rule. However, applying the rule with dross like the north hand is excessive. If partner had doubled 1C for takeout, all I'd be bidding is 1S. Similarly, if partner had doubled a (natural) 2C, I'd respond 2S.

ATB - Wrong Slam
I don't know which is stranger - 4C (double seems clear), 5H (RKCB seems best) or 6H. South should have capped off the strangeness by taking the double dummy line to make 6H.
Opening 7NT
It's always right to play low if righty has the ace. It's also right to play low if lefty has AJxx (x).
