Thomas van der Hoeden's bidding problem: KJT52 86 A63 Q83
As a reflex, I started thinking of different tortures for the guy that said "slam invite". After about 10 minutes, I still haven't thought of one that would be good enough.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: --- T85 AKQJ874 AKT
The hand is about an A or at least a K heavy for 3 for me, not to mention the void which makes it even more weird.

Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AK876 Q84 943 QJ
I would have bid 2 with an A and a Q less. .... and I call myself underbidder....
David Parsons's bidding problem: Q AQ5 AK6 AK9542
I fail to find any merit in jumping to any slam. 7NT can easily be frigid and p will most probably not move if I jump.
Niko Roemer's bidding problem: 93 JT8762 7 T865
