Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AKT7 A4 QJ7652 9
Do you really want partner to do something else with: QJx, Kxx, AKx, XXXX? I'm not saying bidding on is a good idea - I probably wouldn't, but hanging this entirely on partner doesn't seem right.
Joel Wooldridge's bidding problem: 8 Q965 KT9xx 875
It seems like 3nt could salvage it. 3nt may just convince East that their partner is truly broke. As for West they may decide that partner's bidding is more distributionally based. We may buy it, undoubled. If doubled, we may actually have a chance at 4c. By then everyone ...

Mark Chen's lead problem: K875 AJT8 A9 J72

What is your ruling?
Why do you think West is free to bid 5? Who would ever bid 5 if they KNEW that partner had taken 4 as a transfer?
What is your ruling?
Clearly there was no damage since 6 can be easily made; therefore, no redress is necessary. However, the 5 bid is out of bounds. The OP does not specify the use of screens, so West was expecting to hear an alert of 4. Had s/he heard ...
Systems on?
I would expect 6-7 hcp flattish with spades stopped and perhaps a willingness to defend 2x. I like the concept of 1nt as leb, but I don't think it would occur to me at the table.
Systems on?
I had an auction a couple weeks back: 2 - (1) - 2 - (p); 3 - (p) - p - (p) I was the (first) 2 bidder and my (very) non-expert pick-up partner chastised me as she was laying down the dummy, "Pre-emptor is not supposed to bid again!" I ...
