It's silly to restrict membership in this forum as the only people who will view it are those with an interest or questions about procedures. I'm currently the club manager but am giving it up at the end of the month. If there's a problem it lands ...
Thomas van der Hoeden's bidding problem: K9643 J93 Q9 AK5
I have to admit I would have bid 3C with my excellent minor suit cards and lousy spades.
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: KQ84 QT8 976 K32

Chuck Messinger's bidding problem: Q2 K QJ943 KQ852
It's basically 11-15 Precision on unbalanced or 1S opening hands. 1D opening is sound, not Roth-Stone sound, but not all 11s.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: AQ T85 --- AKQJT987
"Can't do everything" is the key. You either play the cuebid as support or denying support. If you try to do both you are very susceptible to preemptive raises. Here, where I didn't cuebid, 4C followed by 4S isn't 3+ support but a spade card or two ...
