Jon Green's bidding problem: AK32 --- KQT976 AK2
If 3 is really forcing it's clearly best. I didn't think it was. While showing some extras, I thought it would be very encouraging but non-forcing. I'd have bid 3 if one of the black kings was a low spot. And, if that's what ...

Serious or Non-Serious 3NT?
IIRC, Steve Weinstein said in an interview that he plays Serious. The reason was that if the non-Serious cue bid hits partner he might then be able to drive to slam.
