Nikolay Yaninski's bidding problem: T9xx 9xx 9xx 9xx
Perhaps it might open a discussion whether or not some psyche is worth it in this case or not. Or if some 5332 would be better for the occasion. I myself considered 1 in either major, Dbl majors. 2 might not be awful as well.
Florian Alter's bidding problem: AQT7 Q9743 T6 J3
Dbl IMO should be used here for "I want to sacrifice" so I see it as a probably better alternative than direct 7
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 97632 K764 K42 6
I agree.

I think that by bidding 1 we already decided the fate of the board to some extent and I think it is generally a bad style to bid anything different than Pass here.
Opening leads against suit contracts from Jxxx and Txxx (no sequence) in an unbid suit
Jxxx is very often a terrible lead and it is not a strange fact at all. It is good only when we find strong combination in our partner's hand.
NABC Appeal
100% forcing, therefore pass not LA - as mentioned above, 7 is good idea with this partner. Otherwise 6 is clear.
Nikolay Yaninski's lead problem: J876 Q4 AT965 Q5
No (5th + 4th would go through 2).

1 could definitely be made with 4-4-0-5.
Continuations after Takeout Double and Free Bid: Many Questions I got
Yes, we do play so.
Paul Grünke's bidding problem: QJ3 K52 AJ84 T94
At this VUL Pass seems most reasonable. What I definitely don't find attractive is bidding 3. Change the VUL and I would find it very close between 4 and 4.
