Dave Robinson's bidding problem: 986 KQ763 4 AT52
Especially NV vs. V, “long dias, spade void” equals some number of dias directly over 1S; my money says RHO has four hearts as well. I’m not as confident as OP that partner has a void as opposed to a stiff: sp9 lead if X ends the auction.
David Caprera's bidding problem: Kxx AK9xxx A8xx ---
Actually, there is such a law...that of averages. I’d be surprised if partner passed less than 90% of the time.
David Caprera's bidding problem: Kxx AK9xxx A8xx ---
Yup, imo 5NT does a better job than 6C of emphasizing the need for further cooperation in selecting a trump suit —above and beyond what has already been promised.
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: K64 A6 KQ52 K832
I too would regard the preceding cuebid as a denial of 4 spades. However, absent discussion but with a partner known to think logically “on the fly”, I would tend to treat the 3 options at/below 3NT thusly: 3NT = “I’ve got this”; X = “I could use a little ...

(That depends on how this pair treats a jump-shift advance.)
Soner Cubukcu's bidding problem: xxxxx Q9xx JTx x
It’s not enough to know we’re in the frying pan; we need some assurance that the fire isn’t next.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J9754 Q82 KJ7 A2
For better or worse, by OP’s stated criteria I have a 4H bid.
Jon Green's bidding problem: AKQ9542 KJ43 A 6
Thanks to the “free” 2D advance, 3S now would be unconditionally forcing (and natural, ofc). Further bidding by any of the other three players can only assist us in sizing up the situation.
Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: Axx Axx x AKxxxx
3C isn’t all peaches & cream: it markedly prioritizes the 3NT issue over responder’s showing a 5th heart.
Gerry Gassman's bidding problem: A76 AKJ943 75 K4
Tom: If you don’t support spades at this point, nothing (short of taking control) will convince your partner that your spade support is as good as it is. (Compared to tables where North opened, at yours protection of the club K in NT took a back seat to other ...
