Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: Q95 KQT98 J J543
6 tricks on defense looks easier than making anything, but this hand isn't strong enough to double. We can sit for a double, if partner doublea again

Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: AKQT5 KQJ6 QT52 ---
I don't think the system is on here, and I also don't think partner will bid 3NT over 3 if he has a 4-card major. So 3 gives me good information now, and if partner bids 3NT, I'll continue with 4.

Good 19s should open 2nt because of hands like this
Mike Gill's bidding problem: Q7 T9543 AQT8 72
I'd double
Noble Shore's bidding problem: xxx JTxx xx Qxxx
As of now the votes are 16-16 for the two possible actions. Partner had x AQxxxx ATx AKJ, so the right action depended on how the suits were breaking in their hands.
Noble Shore's bidding problem: Tx KT9x Kxx AJxx
At the table I balanced and it was wrong; LHO had a 4414 22-count and I can only assume RHO must have had two or three spades in with his clubs the first time ;)
