It's the old story -- people often say the 18-19 balanced hand isn't a problem hand-type ... until it is, and you lose the 10 IMPs again.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: AKQT875 --- AKJ985 ---
I wonder if anyone's tempted to open 1 and rebid 6? The problem with 1 then 6 is you don't want partner to prefer diamonds with 1-2 in the pointed. You never know, they might try to cash any of the round suit aces ...

That's a nice idea but we don't play SA preempts.

2 lets me see if partner has a 5-card spade suit. Note that 6 could easily be better than 6, even at pairs.
Increasing use of hand diagrams
Yes, there are sometimes comments along the lines of: there's a typo on page so-and-so. They are of a different flavor to the bridge comments I'm interested in. Of course, there's the occasional article where the setup is so flawed that it's hard to know where ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: 2 AQJ83 Q84 AQ63
I'd double over 2 or 3.
