Onur Akdoğan's bidding problem: Kx Axxx Axxx AKx
What are the doublers doing after (p) 2?
Rowland Reeves's bidding problem: AQJ 7 9865 KQJ96
Not my cup of tea either but if this handtype is possible for the partnership then "not bridge" is way too strong.

Yes, and what would 2 have meant (and how would it differ from 1 2)
Ambrose Mackie's bidding problem: Q3 A7 AQJ987 832
AT THE TABLE . . . I passed and 4 went one off. 5 is also one off so double-dummy this was the correct thing to do. However, as the opps have a ten card it is possible that they will take insurance in 5 given the vulnerability. I scored ...
14-16 1NT
I play it the same way and I prefer it that way round as you have more room to enquire when opener has the three card support.
Tom Townsend's bidding problem: --- KT85 KQT52 KQJ9
No, but he might. So why take the risk? I can't see an upside (see my comment above).

Richard, imo this is false reasoning. If partner has hearts and spades then he has elected to pass and penalise 1 instead of making a negative double, so you are not going to get to hearts by doubling either.
Reverse Finesse
There's no rush to ruff a heart is there? May as well give opps a chance to pitch one so you can clarify the position.
Who should have taken the bull by its horns?
Again: I am not saying North did not underbid, only that South's failure to accept is worse. Either alternative action could be wrong of course but that's bridge. North could easily get to a bad game opposite a small singleton spade.

I think they both underbid but imo South's failure to accept was more egregious. There wasn't really an option for that so I made do.
