Mark Jones's bidding problem: AKQ7 A J875 AK32
Opening 1 creates a rebid problem over 1. After 1-1-2, recall reaching 6 in 4-3 fit...not this time.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: A2 432 AKQ32 432
11-15 NT perfectly legal, but such a "Jump Ball" system should never be taken too seriously...
Ercan Cem's bidding problem: 85 AKQ63 AKT8 K6
3. Good problem with multiple alternatives. The lack of ability to hold up in clubs suggests an alternative to 3NT may be better.

The danger at 4X above (following the takeout double by LHO), was only when the clubs were 7-0 or 6-1. If my hand were opened 2, 4 would surely be reached, possibly doubled at both tables. Considering the likely distributions when LHO had shown short spades, +990 ...
Continuations after (3X)-3N-(P)-?
Agree, and the 3 preempt creates the worst self-preemption. However, we have already been preempted, and do have the same continuations in place over opening 1NT-4NT raise, so easy to remember. (There is much less preemption over the other 3-level preempts.) I especially related to Debbie's comments below ...
Continuations after (3X)-3N-(P)-?
I have long played, and encouraged others to play, that 4 asks for description and 4, 4 are transfers. Then over 4: 4NT shows minimum balanced. Cuebid is a big balanced hand {then 5NT would be acceptance here, asking 4card suits up the line, etc.} So ...

Down by 12 at the half, dull with 6 boards remaining... QTXXXX QX JXX QX in first chair, vul vs not. I pass. LHO 1 strong, RHO 1 weak, now a courageous 1. Takeout double by LHO, 4 by CHO, double by LHO.A from AK ...
Richard Granville's lead problem: QJ98 QT63 K8 A53
If we choose to lead a heart, maybe the queen?
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AJ2 K76532 KJ J7
2NT. 2 is not a game try opposite shortness, which partner rates to have (or will bid 3H over 2NT). 2NT also allows partner to rebid a minor when that is right. My jacks are working hard, a valuable asset in the contract of partner's choice.
Richard Granville's bidding problem: KJT854 7 AQT83 K
Pass, but make a note to suggest (1m)-2m as "spades plus another."
