"Hottest" Debates Among Bridge Experts Today?
Oddly enough, still quite a hot debate is whether to primarily signal attitude or count upon partner’s opening lead. Latest figures: of the play-off qualifiers open and women in the 2019 world championship, 73% signal primarily attitude, 10% signal count, 17% other/depends/unclear. The count signalers do include ...
What's this double?
I play a blanket agreement that any double of a ‘pass-or-correct’ bid is for take-out. The most common example is (2 Multi) – pass/double – (2) – double.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: Q653 9 AKQT876 2
Leaping Michaels shows a strong hand, which would be rare after an opening bid and a limit raise. Likewise (2 weak) – pass – (3) – 4 is Leaping Michaels, but (2) – pass – (2NT) – 4 is not.

Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: Q653 9 AKQT876 2
4 would be (Non-)Leaping Michaels had 3 been preemptive, but is natural now that it shows a limit raise.
Ian Rowlands's bidding problem: QJT9 A63 AJT95 Q
I would most likely forgo a four-card major if I were very weak with great diamond support.
1m - (X) - 2NT?
I play 1-(dbl)-2NT as Truscott (limit+ in diamonds), 1-(dbl)-2NT as very weak with six+ clubs, the latter just as without the double. Had to abstain.
1M:2C, 2D showing a minimum (try Google Translate if your Dutch is rusty)
Kadir Berkay Sezer's bidding problem: AKxxx Axx Kxxx x
I have seen suggestions that double here should show substantial extra values (Kleinman, Danny en Straguzzi, Nick (‘Chthonic’), ‘Human Bridge Errors’, Master Point Press, 2007, ISBN 1-897106-27-0, pages 127–132). They have not won me and I voted for double.
