Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: 5432 92 AQ 97532
This redouble should be penalty. Sometimes your RHO is passing out of fear.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AKQJT4 T9 K5 J42
It might have been nice to bid 3 over 2. Then when you bid 4 over 3NT, I think you would get the point across.
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: Q9754 A3 A95 874
Great article, Phil.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AK6 KQ KT4 A8764
What's the hurry? We might have 13 toppers and be able to diagnose it during the auction. We can always jump to 6NT later if need be.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: Q2 87 KQJ7 AQJ42
I assume that 2 did not promise 6, or this would not be a problem.

3 ostensibly suggests playing game in hearts.
Thibault Wolf's bidding problem: 872 Q532 865 982

Danny Sprung's bidding problem: 5 AKT72 32 J9872
Dave, this auction is not the same as the double of a 5 opening, where partner is aware that you will bid some of the time. Here, responder already bid 1NT. And also, double by responder is clearly penalty. So opener definitely doesn't need to double with a ...
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: 5 AKT72 32 J9872
What's partner supposed to do with a 19 count and 6 spades? Just pass? Partner is probably not imagining that you would bid here in a million years. The auction started 1 p 1NT. Why would partner think that doubling is inviting you to bid 5 over 5 ...
