How to Probe for a Slam?
Agree. I held the North hand and happily passed. After the round was over, I mentioned to partner that 6 was the best spot (6NT is simply lucky), he said something like "Why would you go looking for a possible slam and give up more than our average++? Nice ...
What's "Normal"?
Hi, Peg. Happy Hanukkah (and an early Happy Beethoven's Birthday). I answered "Previous discussion" simply because I've found that I had need to ask any new partner how they play this. I have a strong preference, but that's a different issue. take care Paul
Ruling on Misinformation

Too controversial for the NABC Daily Bulletin
Nicely done, sir. Enjoy New Zealand
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: KQ9 AK4 8 KQ6542
A simple reverse to 2 seems clear. If partner raises Hearts, you know pard has 5
Two-suited Overcalls
Gordon beat me to it. 4M - 5m hands are a problem. 5M-4m are less so. That said, if partner insisted I pick one of the options you gave, it would be 5-5 with the minor always known.
