Clearly a mixed raise in my book. If I don't have a mixed raise available then I would overbid with a limit raise.
Raghu Rajkumar's bidding problem: A32 3 QT97 AJT95
I'm very surprised to see several good players passing who I'm sure aren't the have-to-have-4-other-major types. Surely we aren't worried about a penalty here with this shape. Why not compete for the partscore?
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
ML: you asked why they are polling if they know what the right agreement is. I hoped my comment showed that they may well "know" what is the best agreement for the voters to have, but still may not know what the voters themselves think the best agreement is, hence ...

The problem was last round - I would have tried 1N.

Another Missed Game!
West's hand is totally prime; I would 100% have raised but not saying it is clear. East is certainly blameless.
