Technical question: is this 3!h bid forcing
Basic classical theory: cue by opener is forcing to game. No reason this should be an exception.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: K64 J97542 KQ4 4
Marshall's right. We want to play in hearts facing three. 2 is a gross underbid.
Tom Townsend's bidding problem: KQJ6 K94 T93 T32
You obviously stop in 5 if 5 is doubled.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
4 set diamonds as trumps, so 4 is not passable.
Tom Townsend's bidding problem: KQJ6 K94 T93 T32
The point of bidding 5 and raising is that you've found out that the A is probably not over you. At the table South signed off in 5, which on analysis appears to be a mistake. When North is missing KQJ, he can't be off much ...
Peter Hasenson's bidding problem: AJ763 8752 6 J82
It's too good for 3.

I suppose you could be taking the heart finesse in the bidding, e.g. facing Axxxxx xx AKQJ A. But the TD will reverse it if you raise a slow 5.
Tom Townsend's bidding problem: KQJ6 K94 T93 T32
If you bid 5 you surely intend to pass 5 for better or worse.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: Q AKQT8 Q75 AK84
Not my idea of a vulnerable weak 2, but each to his own.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: Q AKQT8 Q75 AK84
He couldn't bid that over 2.
