What does this 3!D bid mean?
If playing NF advances--and thus cuebids as overloaded--how do you make a limit raises? I could see something like (1)-1-(P)-2NT being played as that, but after 2-level overcalls, it seems a 2NT advance is needed as natural.
Dutch Spiral
Nice! I am mentally shredding 2 pages of superseded system notes.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AKJ952 J8 9 AKJ4
Abstained because I was told about the hand as a lead problem. The 940 came after a 4 opening, 5 overcall, Pass, 5 by OP hand and a return to 6. Opening leader has Q10xxx xx xx Qxxx, and has plenty to consider.
Goulash problem
Andrzej, This is off-topic, but I enjoyed your "A Matter of Honors" in the Feb 2019 The Bridge World. Very nice hand.

Suit Quality for 1C-1S-4C (forcing Spade raise)
We play 4m as semi-solid or better (playable opposite small x for one loser). Another question concerns follow-ups: what should responder do with slam interest, but with no control in one of the 2 side suits. Simply making a control bid in the other suit may get the auction high ...
After 2!h double negative to 2!c
Our 2 denies as much as one K or two Q's. Opener's rebids: 2: GF, unbalanced 1 or 3-suiter, responder bids 2NT (see below) 2NT: 22-24 HCP, BAL 3 suit: NAT, NF 3NT: to play, not necessarily BAL, responder must pass 4: GF major 2-suiter ...
