Was anyone at fault here?
What about giving West xxxx instead of J9xx?
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: 2 AJT954 KT986 3
My reason for preferring 2 to 1 is to distinguish the given hand from one with similar shape that has one or more additional working honors but isn't strong to jump shift.
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
I suspect that is one of the arguments in favor of 0 or 2 higher assuming it means you would play K from KQ but J from KQJ.
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: 82 KQ97653 T93 8
One possible use of 4 rebid comes from Kaplan-Sheinwold. It was a non-forcing slam try and denied any control that partner couldn't discover by using Blackwood. You wouldn't bid it with this hand a/c singleton but could bid it with xx-KQJxxx-xxx-Kx (I added J a ...
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: 82 KQ97653 T93 8
If 4 is an auto-splinter I would bid it; if not then 3 since I want to be able to cooperate with 4 if opener bids 3 over 3.
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
The Journalist approach (see my comment below for more) was that it showed one higher but not necessarily touching honor.

Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
I don't think there is a standard. One possible approach recommended by "Journalist" appeared in the October 1965 issue of The Bridge Journal. It proposed that you split with second highest of [b]all[/b] honors (assuming you choose to split). That means you would play 10 from J1098 ...
Showing both majors over 1NT - 2!C
I think it is a bad idea but abstained because I have never played it and therefore haven't found it to be a bad ides.
Takeout Doubler’s Cue Bid after Minor Suit Advance
I think that double followed by 3 shows a better suit (usually 6) and that 2 followed by 3 shows this kind of suit. Both auctions are very strong and I have played that the latter is forcing.
