Finish this sentence
a long shot, but a fair one. Remember that with AK6, the ace lead would be automatic, yet the chances of (immediate) success, i.e., partner having K/Q-5th, are the same.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: AK 652 753 AQJ64
Double, hoping partner will bid 3NT. Reminds me of the post ‘What's partner up to?’, see https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/whats-partner-up-to-2-u39opaj23r/
Ed Judy's bidding problem: 4 AKT65 AQ9542 T
I do play Leaping Michaels, but that it is off after opponents have shown invitational or better values, such as here.
Vicki Gregory's bidding problem: K Axx AKQxxx AQx
2NT: I play this as showing a ‘Bridge World Death Hand’: six+ diamonds and three hearts, invitational or better, forcing. (All strong balanced hands that open at the one level, open 1.)
David Parsons's bidding problem: JT864 9 A3 86532
As I play Good-Bad 2NT, for it to be on right-hand opponent must have bid, so that is never in balancing position. (I presume ‘3NT as good-bad’ is a typo.)

Or say no to playing in ACBL.
Multi 2!d Continuations
To answer your more specific questions, in reply to 2-(pass): 3/ is a long suit and is usually played as forcing to game. 3/ is pass-or-correct and preemptive (some play 3 as an own long suit). 4 requests a transfer to opener ...
What's partner up to?
Showing clubs and no spades. The reason partner doubled instead of bidding 4 (forcing at the four level, even though playing Negative Free Bids) is that they hoped I could bid 3NT.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: QJ7 A95 J876 K63
Supporting diamonds then bidding notrump looks like better and easier than the other way around.
