Opener's two-level "reverse" after a 2/1 GF
I answered your 2nd option, but not because it's right, it's just what I play. Regarding the 2nd sequence, 1-2-2, I think you shouldn't have polled it at all. Though in both cases it's a matter of agreement, you will find a lot ...
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AQ82 KJ8743 T2 5
I don't consider 3NT as a question.
Director call - have I missed something?
If 10 secs is not slow for a card to be played, then what about 520 secs (8 minutes and 40 secs) for a whole hand?
David Boxley's bidding problem: 9732 T5 AK875 Q3
1 does not show anything more than a terrible minimum. I said that 2 by responder shows a hand that did not pass 1, which he could do, so anything bellow 7 is already excluded.
David Boxley's bidding problem: 9732 T5 AK875 Q3
Bidding 2 already shows a decent hand, one I did not respond with "to keep bidding open". Partner didn't jump shift, so he knows to follow up with a better hand. Yes I have a nice side suit, but I have horrible trumps and a so-so Q. 3 ...

Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: A JT94 KQJ84 A93
With a suit worth showing, I'll always show this first. Partner can judge how well the hands fit much better, later.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 6 KJ52 KQJ2 8632
3 is not mini.

I bet most are because people thought it should be a bidding problem. However, there are often people that don't want to really vote, but want to see who voted what.
What has partner got?
4 simply doesn't exist. It didn't exist before and it still doesn't exist, after partner bid it.
