I agree with David. Jacek Kalita's play of 4S on Board 23 is my nomination for Hand of the Year.
Ercan Cem's bidding problem: A Q7 AK AT987643
All bids are very imperfect. I think there's something to be said for bidding 5. Bid what you think you can make.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 732 J87532 7 JT7

Third-suit bids
I'm new to reverse Flannery, but I don't see why 1 should be artificial and GF. Last month, there was an interesting related discussion:
