Jeff Ruben's bidding problem: T84 Q6 JT4 KQ763
Depends on your agreements, that usually depend on what you like and what is the meaning of 2 as response. I play it as penalty (which can be removed), I think most people play it as take out but I could be wrong in this specific seq (partner knows ...
Not true I'm afraid, if declarer has this hand, partner's A is stiff.

Alan Frank's bidding problem: AKT AT6432 AK7 J
Don't know if it's a UI case, but I tanked for 3 minutes to finally bid a 3 card suit (which I hate).

How do you play Picture Bid when the choice is 3M or 4M?
How can I pick an answer when you ask me to pick a question?
Paul Dalley's bidding problem: AJT753 K3 A96 KQ
With the given hand, if they double you for penalties, they won't find the bones to bury them.
Cory Perkers's bidding problem: 743 T3 Q95 AKT64
It would have been a lot safer and better tactics to open this 3, instead of bidding 2 now (I am not suggesting that one should open 3...).
Michael Hopkins's bidding problem: KJ973 A82 53 A53
Possible yes. Probable certainly not. From what I can see, I cannot beat 5 of a minor, but I also have no reason to sacrifice, or rather I have every reason to not sacrifice.
