Slam or Grand?
In the partnerships i play the 3rd round ask, it is strictly step responses (no, dbltn, Q if room else no, yes). Asker is captain. I suppose it's theoretically possible for 3rd round responder to judge to bid 7 (it's not happened to me) knowing based on the ...
Will Engel's bidding problem: AQ74 Q5 AJ74 AT8
2-2 and 4-2 is sufficient if responder is 5512. T is also an extra chance.

Slam or Grand?
If partner has 3+ clubs, 7 will be at worst on D hook so I’ll take my chances in the grand. I can ask opener (scientifically) for 3rd club control with 6C, step responses (no, dbltn, Q). Opener can’t have Q here, and he won’t know that ...
Spotting Chances
Yes, both partner and I undervalued the 6 and the opps just plain undervalued. Kicking myself for not re Qing hearts so we could reach 7 and avoid H lead. Interestingly , in 7 , looks like the only legitimate play is the winning one (if escape H lead).

Psyches - and fielding them
You are a long way from 9 tricks on any lead. Time to establish spades, or diamonds, or clubs. 6 and 2 tricks are not enough. Opps can establish long spade (giving 2S), long clubs (giving 2 club tricks), or just Q (giving D, spade on opening lead) Of ...
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: T987 7 865 AKQT5
Yes, though I’m not sure we can make game ,I’m getting us to at least 4. I would note that I could construct layouts that make 4 opposite that hand.
Psyches - and fielding them
It was a paraphrasing of an OP comment upthread, I could have been more clear about that , it is certainly not a statement that i believe.

4 is a descriptive invite when overcaller has AKxxxx xx Axx xx.
