Favorite Conventions
I named a cat after Namyats, but it's not actually my favorite convention.

Strong Notrump 2/1
Copy to my cards View/Print
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AT864 KQJ9 K KQ9
See this is why people say not to splinter with a singleton king, it causes partner to devalue his own king in the suit.
Yosep Hutasoit's bidding problem: K2 K64 AK984 Q52
Unplayable for 1N to be so wide ranging. (Admittedly this is a tough auction for weak notrump even when 1N is more tightly constrained.)
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- AKT AK876 AQ986
This is a peculiar way of polling the previous round. I'm not allowed to bid 7 so what's left but double? 6N seems wrong. I actually didn't see your conditions and voted for 7. PLEASE SIGN NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT BEFORE READING NEXT SENTENCE. It wouldn't ...
Rajeev Bansal's bidding problem: 43 AKJ96 KQ9742 ---
The first auction doesn't make any sense (surely responder did not double 3 after a 2 rebid by opener), can you try again with some line breaks?
Input from Players and Directors Requested
Re-posting my earlier comment: "How does South know that North doesn't hold ♠K, ♥A, ♣A, and a minor suit king, a 14-count which makes seven cold?"
Input from Players and Directors Requested
It's not unreasonable for NS to get to 7: 1N - 3 4 - 4 4 - 4 4N - 5 7 5C shows 3 keys for hearts, but north thinks clubs are trumps and bids 7.
Input from Players and Directors Requested
How does South know that North doesn't hold K, A, A, and a minor suit king, a 14-count which makes seven cold? Sorry, I think 6 is much more likely to be blatant use of UI than an intelligent placement of the contract.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: 985 J62 AKQ4 A93
Oren, can you tell us partner's hand or are you holding out for more votes? :)
Sathya Bettadapura's bidding problem: AKJ64 J96 K84 K2
I don't think we're in a force after a fit jump.
Who has what left ?
Sathya, in your construction the defenders pitched 3 hearts, holding 3. That's not consistent with LHO having the heart ace, but it is consistent with RHO keeping Ax to leave himself an exit card so as not to lead away from the king of spades.
