Will Engel's bidding problem: AQ74 Q5 AJ74 AT8
Any 4-2 break is 13 tricks opposite 2-3 's with 2-2 's. (Also, partner won't bid seven with KXXXXX AKXXX not knowing about Q or 4th .)
David Parsons's bidding problem: 8765 A54 KJ9875 ---

Playing 4H P/C is not silly. Having this option available can be an advantage when it comes up, while 2oM followed by 4oM is available as a signoff. 2oM followed by 3oM can be played as forcing. (This never comes up, but what if it did?) Having the option ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: T43 T83 T862 T93
I really wanted to bid 3 to test my theory that the opps never penalize this weak preempt, with no apparent limit to how hopeless my hand can be. And 3 actually has the merit of taking up meaningful bidding space.

Great set of hands that I missed--when I watch, the hands are usually flat. Thanks for posting.
