There's a lot of different ways a feature like this could go (oh boy, the software engineer in me is coming out). Pulling the contract by table and names, like it's done currently, would lead to a lot of text for one board and it'd take forever ...
Steve Valencic's bidding problem: KJ75 AJ943 7 AQ8
And FWIW, even though it's not directly relevant, after OP's 3D call here, his partner desperately tried to sign off in 3H under the premise that 3D does not show S support. OP then somehow found a 4S call here, which caused the argument, this post, and then ...

Juniors already pay $10 less per session and U-19 is free for most sessions (not 100% sure on this one). I'm definitely going to milk the last 1.5 years I have of those discounts before I consider future NABC plans.
Dirty Talk
Can't finesse if the second is ruffed, reducing you to AK tight.
ATB - Hopeless grand
I don't have a problem with the auction until after 6 (if you're playing first-round controls). E is still in the dark about the K of and K of , and should ask. 6 after 6 should say, "Bid 7 with the K of ...
