Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 4 AKQ972 AJ872 6
4nt didn't occur to me over 2, but agree it would have made things easy. That said, 6H could be the better scoring slam too (and in fact with hearts three-three it was) Over 4 I agree that all we care about is key cards, but at ...
What is 4!C?

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 4 AKQ972 AJ872 6
Yes, that would have definitely simplified auction
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: JT5 KQ85 KQJ972 ---
Partner had AQ4 A93 10654 K53 and with spade king onside we can make six diamonds. I was going to bid on if partner passed (would you?), but double talked me out of it. We scored +100 when diamond lead let him immediately pitch a heart loser

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AKQT976 92 J54 4
Yes, at the table I didn't consider passing for this reason
Check Yourself
Will partner raise with a scattered 6-7 count? That won't be great if you bid this way with 3=1=(54) 11 count or something similar
Check Yourself
Well, I don't see how "anything but a strong balanced hand" is playable, so absent discussion I would play it as strong and balanced. Partner might have bid anyway with an opinion about where to play?
