4 hand solitare style with robots on BBO
The big asset is the speed. There just seems to be some algorithm flaw that it never leads a bid suit and never continues an attack. Thanks Fred for the reminder! I knew all that but was hypnotized by the idea! It is what it is! Someday the programing will ...
Jacoby 2NT Question
I would solve that hand by passing in the first place. If I am afraid of my hand after getting strong support, then I should fear opening it!
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: --- AKT97542 A98 AT
I often play mexican 2D so a 2N rebid is forcing and always unbalanced! That would be my choice here.
Howard Liu's bidding problem: QT6 K9 K AJ97542
Is this a lead problem?...oh, I am not on lead :)

Steve Moese's bidding problem: AQ2 KT9 732 Q986

Hendrik Sharples's bidding problem: AQT98 8 AK5 AQT5
Without comment I pass..
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: QT93 6 KQ65 AKJ3
Another case for that disrespected treatment...XYZ.
