Gerben Dirksen's bidding problem: KT9 AQJT876 K2 5
If partner has s power double, it might be important to get to 6N from my side, so respect to those blasting 4N.
Frances Hinden's lead problem: Q42 K542 3 AT842
Did a spade not work out?
Ned Kohler's bidding problem: AKJT963 --- KQJT72 ---
6S is hardly laydown and will be passed. 6D gets us to 7 when partner has the DA, which a) helps with trump control and b) provides a sure entry if we are going to close our eyes and take a spade finesse.

Is 4NT ever quantitative after a suit fit is found ?
Hmm Michael, my guess is that majority response will be 2, with commentary as 1/3 (indistinguishable given bridge players' strong opinions?).
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: Q A632 AT7 AQ985
I'm not sure the context of the bidding (now I read 3D is competitive), but partner might have bid 2NT with crap?
Is this hand an acceptable one-level opening bid in modern bridge?
I've made the argument before, that logically, different people will have different hand evaluation metrics. If you set the limit at X (well let's say where X is in the neighborhood of where regulations are now), there's always some* example hand that crosses that. The only consistent ...
Defense against 4S preempt
Curiously, responding to a double of 4S is like responding to a penalty double of 1NT. Responder sits with balanced hands (even junk) or strong hands, but pulls with weak/medium hands with shape (obviously, more shape at the 5 level).
