Paul Maris's bidding problem: A4 QJT43 AK984 7
If you bid 4, what do you bid over 4? Last time I checked -170 was a better score than -300 or -420.
Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: AKJ65 --- Q65 KQT92

How about N bidding hearts instead of spades over the positive response? Now he may have a chance to ask RKC for hearts and probably finds out what he needs to know. Even in this sequence why wouldn't 4N be RKC for hearts? Opener may be showing a major ...
Rich Newell's bidding problem: K Q84 K6 K876542
Another alternative is that it is GF, but you are allowed to get out at 4 of the minor.
Frivolous play ruling
Right. The NOS should be protected to the Ave+ or their most likely result whichever is greater.
