Frances Hinden's bidding problem: KQJ6 A AKJ63 KT7
Why can't partner be 3325?
Do You Count Your Cards?
Is one supposed to count after the deal as well?
Does it matter how many points the opponents show?
Bid 2 and pray not to go -800. I would pass opposite a passed partner.
Segment from Hell - the Prelude
Why didn't partner cue 3 (on the missed heat slam hand) which would let you cheaply show a club control?
Transfers After 1m-(1!S)
I think it also matters what 1 is. For instance if it is any balance hand, then it makes a lot more sense to give up the natural 2 bid. For my earlier comment, 1NT is definitely a contact you want to be able to bid and play ...
Transfers After 1m-(1!S)

Yuan Shen's bidding problem: KT865 J3 AJT32 J
Just forcing 1 round.
6S & 4H rebids.
I think 1 - 2 and 1 - 2 are different (related to what Frances said above). I prefer 1 - 2 ; 2 to show 6 (since 2 defaults), and then 2NT can usually ask for more information. But 1 - 2 ; 2 ...
Flannery and the New Convention Chart
Why shouldn't the spread be more than 5 points? I've never understood the reasoning.
Flannery and the New Convention Chart
Gazzilli works very well with Flannery. 1H 1N 2C = 16+ (exactly 4-5 if spades and hearts) 1H 1N 2S = regular reverse but promises at least 4-6.
