Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: AQ62 AJT2 A2 T97
Still not a terrible game. Just needs the cq onside.
Jon Green's bidding problem: 983 A7642 J5 K92
I'm sure I would bid that way with 4252 and extras.

Extra values, probably 4252 or 4153.
2!D opening
The model I would play is: 1H=5 1S=5 2C=6, no major 2D=6, no major 1D= any 4441 or any 4M longer m, or some balanced range 1NT=some other balanced range. (Works with strong or medium club systems) The only trouble hand type is: xx(54 ...
Slow double - should I pull anyway?
If 2NT described your hand well, you don't need to do anything afterward. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that your partner has a minimum with short spades.
2!D opening
I normally play this as either a weak two in diamonds (11 points...pffft) or a trash multi. In a club system, I'd probably play it as an opening hand with diamonds.

No, indeed. So it will be a better hand than that. Even Kxxxx,xxx,Kxx,xx is a fair game.
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: A5 A5 AQJ9 KQT84
I don't think a good player would sign off on the agreements you have described.

Eric posted a few, and they're mostly subminimums. I would have difficulty constructing a 1S overcall that fails in game without horrid duplication (such as 2-3 in the minors).

A 1S overcall.
