How many Countries can you represent in your life?

Eight ever, nine never? A new situation
If you're giving declarer 5 - which is pretty unlikely itself - you're forgetting another common layout: T8x - Qx. Here declarer would need to finesse the jack if LHO ruffs with the 8. I also don't follow your comment about a deep finesse when LHO ruffs with the ...
A Little Bit Of Help

Matthew Brown's bidding problem: AJ43 T3 A AKJT64
I would have doubled on the first round and I don't consider it close.
