Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

Kxxxx could be enough to set 3NT if dummy has Ax and declarer QJx (especially if partner ducks the heart lead, which they probably should). However, even with stronger hearts, partner would be unlikely to overcall at the two level on just a five-card suit.

No (two-level) heart overcall would all but balance out against no club overcall.
James Huntington's bidding problem: 964 532 Q76 K986
I usually respond with five points or an ace. However, this is a bad hand even for its five points. And the only feasible bid of 1NT would wrong-side a notrump contract.

a long shot, but a fair one. Remember that with AK6, the ace lead would be automatic, yet the chances of (immediate) success, i.e., partner having K/Q-5th, are the same.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: AK 652 753 AQJ64
Double, hoping partner will bid 3NT. Reminds me of the post ‘What's partner up to?’, see
Ed Judy's bidding problem: 4 AKT65 AQ9542 T
I do play Leaping Michaels, but that it is off after opponents have shown invitational or better values, such as here.
Vicki Gregory's bidding problem: K Axx AKQxxx AQx
2NT: I play this as showing a ‘Bridge World Death Hand’: six+ diamonds and three hearts, invitational or better, forcing. (All strong balanced hands that open at the one level, open 1.)
David Parsons's bidding problem: JT864 9 A3 86532
As I play Good-Bad 2NT, for it to be on right-hand opponent must have bid, so that is never in balancing position. (I presume ‘3NT as good-bad’ is a typo.)
