Mixed pair lost their hearts
East should bid 4, but the real problem is the 4 bid. I really see no reason to bid 4 besides not having the needed values for that bid, it might cause some confusion about the 4 bid from East, natural or CUE with s ?
Tough lead against slam
If east had Kxx of a trump might be very normal, so your plan on a -lead should probably be reconsidered. Leading a singleton trump is often a bad idea, so on a -lead I would ruff 2 s and take the -finesse (After dropping a on the ...
Erronous analysis in Bridge Play Made Easy - Reese and Jourdain?
I think the authors just want you to throw a when caching the , as that works with the actual layout. But with a -lead, ducked, and back, you should cross to the A, and take KJ of , when West follows he can no longer have ...

What are the odds?
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_probabilities#Hand_pattern_probabilities Odds to get a 9-card suit 9 card 9-2-1-1, 9-2-2-0, 9-3-1-0, 9-4-0-0 0.00037 so around 1 every 3000 hands so 3 in 50 hands is like winning the lottery Thorvald
Standard followups to Minor Suit Transfers
I used to play it as shortness (and think that is standard), but to make it harder to double the suit for a lead, we changed it to be shortness in the other major
