Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 75 QJT532 T94 86
There are two ways to state a bidding poll: (1) include methods, clearly and comprehensively; (2) allow participants to use – and to feel free to explain – their own methods. I prefer the latter.

4 = slam try in hearts. Note that the poster did not mention Texas.
Alert question

Ned Kohler's bidding problem: Q982 K3 Q43 AK87
Bidding style matters. I play light opening bids and (consequently) heavy invites. That makes this hand an easy go.
Rajeev Jog's bidding problem: AT8653 82 94 AK4
