Bob Simkins's bidding problem: AKT7 A65 Q97 A53
This 2 as ‘Third Suit Forcing (to game)’ is increasingly standard among better players where I live.
What is 4NT?
I play less ace-asking that most, namely after previous suit establishment only, but bidding the same suit naturally thrice establishes the suit, hence 4NT is ace-asking here. For me 3 is primarily a stopper rather than a suit. Opener, who did not reverse, cannot have four hearts, so 3 ...
Is a Natural, Strong NT in "Sandwich" Position a Relic of the Past?
Five(+) in the higher, four+ in the lower unbid suit. The fourth option in reverse. Not at all unusual where I live.
Is 4333 a semi-balanced distribution?

Is 4333 a semi-balanced distribution?
‘Obviously no’ – but it depends on the context. On my convention card I list our 1NT opening bids as ‘(semi-)balanced’.

Malcolm Pryor's bidding problem: KQT52 QJT84 A3 7
I would have overcalled some two-suited overcall – 2 as I play – instead of 1.
Michaels Crazy

Patrick Gaudart's bidding problem: AT876 K QT9765 A
3: 5-5+ in the pointed suits.
David Sackett's bidding problem: Q4 J6 AJT84 J954
3: Mixed Raise with ‘enough’ diamonds.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 4 AQ7 AJ87632 AQ
2NT: six+ diamonds, three hearts, invitational+.
