Robert Schachter's bidding problem: KQ2 972 AJ43 KQ5
I strongly feel that partner should be 3 hearts with extras and 6+ or with a solid or semi solid heart suit. That is the issue here and without that bid I have a minimum 2/1, in fact I would make a Swiss raise with this hand (forcing NT ...
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: KQJ432 AK64 4 85
Partner is unlimited and could have 3NT cold. If they bid 3 Hearts will quickly raise to 4.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: T753 QT64 63 Q32
Hand is too bad for 3 spades. If it goes 3S -p-p-x will be looking at -500 or -800
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: JT J63 QT87 KQ87

Ideas for Unit (or local org) Games?
There is a twice yearly club challenge between Clearwater and St. Petersburg. It is on a Sunday and was fairly well attended the one I played in(I winter with my wife in Clearwater). It had over 20 tables in play.
pass fail
I have an effective 8 count so I would just use the first rule and bid 3 spades. Partner needs 2 aces just to have a shot at game and there are many hands partner could have that have no play(including this one) All in all double of 4 ...
What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?
I have seen a 24 IMP swing on a ruling(replacement board, this was a long time ago). I also have collected 4600(4 clubs doubled and redoubled down 8). I also have lost 14 IMPs collecting +1100 in a part score auction.

Sounds like partner has a trump or two and should lead one.
