A Useful Inversion
Nice idea Ed. A slight variant perhaps: 1 - 1M 2 - ? Now 2 asks and opener bids 2 to show the club-diamond reverse (with room for Lebensohl still). This can't get out in 2M but saves some room. In either case, I think a big advantage ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQ32 QT KQJT 543
I'm with the 2/1 camp, but 2 will likely determine if partner has 6 spades or a 5/5-type hand (assuming methods permit).

Phillip, are you planning on converting 1 X?
1NT is tough to defend
It's pairs against 1N (not 3N) ... The club seems totally normal.
Worst Bid? For Bidding Theory Geeks Only
I think Jay's version of Turbo starts at 4.
The Longest Consecutive Chain of Bids Ever?
This makes me think that to make bridge acceptable to watch, bidding should be limited to at most three calls each. Still, well done Jay.
For Those Who Play Good/Bad 2NT
Where's the option that 2NT is natural but not invitational (since an earlier 2NT was possible). There shouldn't really be a good diamond raise either (too bad: no cuebid previous round), 2 is available here to show a good club raise. Responder would surely only want to ...
One For the Lighter Side
Steve, great article!
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: AJT54 K76 AQJ87 ---
The diamond suit quality matters too. You want partner to be thrilled to hold the DK, the SQ not so much, also a spade singleton would be fine in a hand with longer hearts.
Out of Control
Phillip, I also play that (called 'Dixon' I think in the UK), but would you really bid 2 with East's 9-8-2?
