Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: AKJ73 A3 Q7 AK53
I bid 5N at the table, but in retrospect I think this is pick-a-(small)-slam, not a try for a grand. OTOH, if you bid 5N and partner bids, say, 6 and then you correct to 6N, she might be able to figure out what you're doing.
Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: AKJ73 A3 Q7 AK53
OK, so partner bids 3N over 3 and now what?
Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: AKJ73 A3 Q7 AK53
How does it cost to bid 5N of you're willing to settle in 6? Are you worried partner will bid a grand but it will go down?
Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: AK4 986 J9 AK984
I wonder how many would play 1-2-2-2-3-3N as non-serious 3N if it came up at the table...

Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: AK4 986 J9 AK984
Yes, the danger of 2 including this hand type is that after partner's 3 bid you still don't know what strain you're in.

Well, isn't 3 lying about diamonds? Partner only promised 5 of them.
Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: J9 AKQ632 AJ64 4
3N directly over 2 would imply a 15 count, not 3N over 3.
