Winston Chang's bidding problem: AKQJ754 AT 8 QT2
4, to be followed by an Action Double over 5.
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: --- Jx Ax AKQTxxxxx
I played 4NT specific aces for decades and it never came up. Even this hand it not as suitable as it seems: just A won’t help, while KQ plus K will. Now I play it for extreme minors and it has already come up several times.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: QJT64 65 KQ AQJ6
I would bid 2 if that would show five spades plus a minor.
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: QT9xx KQx Kx AQT
Not really: I am allowed, but not obliged to open 1NT with a five-card major. I don’t often do it with spades – more often with hearts or when our mini NT is on – but on this hand, yes. (By the way, our system featuring Gazzilli can handle 15–17 ...
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: KQT 98 AKxx AQJx
2 as constructive (say 8–10 HCP or 9 losers) would not be alertable where I (and Merijn) live, nor, it appears, under WBF international rules.
Gabriel Carrasco's bidding problem: Q 975 AK963 AQ93

James Tyner's bidding problem: AKT8653 KT7 K 75
3: this is (or should be) forcing to game nowadays.
Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: QJxx x Qxxx Kxxx
1 nowadays has a higher upper limit than in days gone by, up to about 10 HCP. So this is easy.
How light can your 1M responses to 1D be?
I tend to respond to one of a suit with five high-card-points or an ace. The given hand is untypical because of the six-card club suit.
The Next Step
I play odd-even discards with one partner. We play that suit preference applies only when signaler obviously has ‘enough’ cards; otherwise (thus usually), even is discouraging only. Then what is the advantage of odd-even discards, you ask? Well: none, really, as you can equally play suit preference as an adjunct ...
