Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AKQ 753 T7653 86
Good one :)
Michael Low's bidding problem: AKQTx --- xxxx AQxx
Yrjo, this doesn't allow partner to conveniently show the K.
Duane Christensen's bidding problem: AKJx AKQxx --- ATxx
Richard, there is quite a difference between "quite skimpy" and "might have shaded the 1NT bid a little" (what I meant was around a 6 count in preference to bidding a 3 card suit or a 4 card suit at a higher level, see my comment below). Although 3 ...

This is me getting in the last word :)
Can Korkmaz's bidding problem: 42 AQ8432 K985 J
OK, I guess I will have to read up on how LTC as responder works.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: 9654 T54 AJ54 54
Close between preemptive 4 and McCabe 3. I would go for the preemption unless playing very loose, random defense and offense, weak 2's since partner should have about 8 LTC and I have about 3 cover cards.
Duane Christensen's bidding problem: AKJx AKQxx --- ATxx
As long as you play 2 as "100% forcing after partner's (value-showing) 1NT advance" I would agree, but I don't think it is. It certainly shows extras but could be on something like a 4513 16 count since responder might have shaded the 1NT bid a little.

Steve, I have never understood using LTC with support by responder. How does that work? Using cover cards and estimating opener's LTC has always seemed simpler to me. And why has responder shown 5 spades with 8 losers? I'm not arguing, I just don't understand your comment.
Michael Low's bidding problem: AKQTx --- xxxx AQxx
But Richard, even this contrived, worst of all possible hands, still makes 5 unless they manage to negotiate an immediate diamond ruff. Doesn't that mean that South is worth another try over 4? Of course, after rereading your post I realized you weren't advocating passing 4 ...
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: KT2 AJT43 T942 6
A little too good for 4 since partner has at least a very good 65.
