Gabriel Fractman's bidding problem: ATx QJ987 --- K9432
2 easily distinguishes 5 v 6 trumps ... which seems important to me. Also you find out if there's a 5-4 heart fit -- 1 - 2 ; 2.
What is going on?
The final bid would be 3.
Should Michaels require an alert?
I'm still convinced that first round bids should simply be announced. Like screens, without screens.

No specific agreements. "Normal basic bridge"
Play problem
I like Aloke's (also Craig's IMPs line) line of ruffing a diamond. I played SQ which got taken by RHO's ace. Another spade, ruffed (!), and a club. Now what?
How do you play this 2NT bid?
I'm not sure the game-invite hand with hearts suffers too much from preemption -- it presumably can wait to double 3 or 4? Sometimes this won't work of course.
2C opening to include 20-21 balanced
I agree the busy hand is so so, but being able to show two suits as responder below 3N is huge.
Should this Q-bid be Natural?
We have general agreement that: First cue is artificial (some type of force) Second cue is natural. So with Eric's hand we don't get to play 2 but we can play 3. The situation is typically more important in a sequence like : 1 (2+) 1 ...
David Libchaber's bidding problem: KQJ63 K5 976 Q54
I don't think I should play p for A A AK. The side suit of Qxx is a terrible holding. Partner might have started with 2C if he thought Qx(xx) is enough for slam.
