Florian Alter's bidding problem: AKQ96 J8 Q543 54
Should play last-train for those positions, slightly technically better to use 4 for it.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
It's actually a bad MP / BAM strategy. In MPs it is a clear X. So many ways to win: converting +100 -> +200, +100 -> +110, -110 -> -50. Only lose when partner takes out when they are two down (unlikely), or when they make (both unlikely, and inexpensive, since -110 is ...

And 20 hcp is not even in the original range (21-22hcp).

Doug, thanks for that. What tools did you use?
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: --- Q9x A8xx AQ8xxx
E likely 6-4 here, especially if expert. In that case passing has to be negative expectation.
29 point game
What if E's Heart card is K or Q?
