Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Let the cards speak, not the time it takes to play them!
See a “question on discarding” below for a perfect example of this problem.
A question on discarding
Please read “let the cards speak” above. I don’t believe that any player would quickly discard the H6. A slow H6 conveys extra information. An in-tempo C6 or C5 should be relatively easy to find and is a sensible play.
Standard question
In standard, this auction should have a 6_card Heart suit. Might have only 5 spades?

Brian Zhang's bidding problem: 82 T JT2 QJT9872
I don't love playing transfers over 2C=Majors. You can play unusual v. unusual to clarify your hand. There 2H would be invitational or better in clubs and 3C would be to play. Now you don't need to make a decision. Analogously 2S would be the best diamond ...
Stella Wan's bidding problem: 93 --- AQ8764 KQT63
You hold KQJx, x, AKxxxxx, x. 4NT = RKC is certainly useful.
