What bidding systems are most advantageous to the play?
A relay system where dummy defines their hand would provide the opponents with a minimum amount of useful information while allowing you with all the information you would need to make sensible contract decisions. Relays can be easily attached to strong club front ends.
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: KQ KQ753 KQ9 AJT
I expect partner to have at least 43 in the majors for the 4 bid. With 6 clubs, a GF and no interest in 3N, I would bid 4 - why would this NOT be forcing in this auction? IMO X would be the non-GF method of landing in ...
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 53 53 Q9 Q976542
My point that is being missed here - opener is highly likely to have a doubleton club, significantly more so than a tripleton (singletons and voids have been eliminated due to the 2N bid). In that case, no matter partner's point count, 2N is in jeopardy. And if 2N makes ...
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 53 53 Q9 Q976542
I'm expecting quite a bit - we have a weak 2 bid and no advance and I have 4HCP. So I expect 18HCP out of partner. With his likely Hx in clubs, all I need is something like AQxx AQx Kxxx Kx for a legitimate shot on heart lead ...

Paul Hightower's bidding problem: KQ2 KQ42 KQ6 KT5
18HCP+T = no downgrade. Downgrading balanced hands for 4333 shape is irrational. You want your partner with a balanced 8 count passing this after you open 1N?
When your tires are flat
While East gains the 1N response, North has already gained the 1 overcall. Seems like a fair trade. I don’ see the criminality in East’s behavior.

When your tires are flat
Perhaps I didn't phrase my point carefully. It is my understanding that there is a difference between a mechanical error ("I pulled the wrong card") which should be fairly self-evident; and unintended error after thought ("I didn't see RHO's bid"). These are distinctly different misintentions - with the ...
When your tires are flat
I thought that there was a distinction between mechanical misintention and misintention after thought.
