May you bid after partner's hesitation
I don't think pass is a logical alternative, so I'll bid 3 regardless of the hesitation. If the director rules against me (after polling players) I will respect it, although secretly I might have doubt with the level of players polled. Note that being ruled against doesn ...
Jack Spear's bidding problem: AK2 T982 QT32 AT
Whatever you do is a guess now -- a price paid for previous round of bidding.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: K532 5 A87 AK987

What does this double mean. I have no idea.
If you use 2NT as takeout, obviously you can retain X as penalty. But then you lose good/bad 2NT. So, you have 3 types of hands but 2 bids, something has to give up.
What does this double mean. I have no idea.
I play that 1M (P) 1NT (2x) X is takeout, but 1m (P) 1NT (2M) X is penalty. The reason is that in first sequence, partner can have the lower suits, with relatively wide range in shape and strength. On second sequence, partner already denied majors, so X as takeout ...
