AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

North opens 1 and East doubles. South redoubles to show 10+ points (or 2NT for Jordan), and so West has plenty of room to bid 1 (and should, not leaving partner to guess over the XX.) North probably rebids 2, and East raises to 2. South probably then bids 3, looking for a stopper (which North can't really imagine the Q is, but surprisingly, it helps!), but North will deny that with 4. Now South has to decide about game - but if he's smart, he'll realize that there are so many outside losers here that it's going to be very hard for partner to cover them and he should not just fall in love with the huge trump fit, and he may just pass - although it's not hard to sympathize with bidding 5. If South had bid 2NT Jordan, North may bid 3, South 3, and then probably press on to 5.
3 losers (2, 1) means it was a very good idea to stop!

East passes, South passes, and West opens 2NT. North passes, East bids Stayman, and when West shows , East bids 3NT, and that's that.
Everything is well in hand here, so declarer just has to go after setting up some tricks by knocking out Aces. Declarer could come to 3, 2, 3, and 3, but the defense gets 3 tricks along the way if they lead and the defense could keep declarer from getting 3 and 3 on a holdup to disrupt transportation.

South passes, West passes, and North opens 1. East overcalls 1, and South is in that weird place where 1NT doesn't seem right, X promises exactly 4-card , and 2 is a stretch, but he probably stretches and bids 2. West could now double to largely imply with tolerance, and now North passes and East rebids 2, and that looks like it's probably the end of that when North is discouraged that partner couldn't act over 2.
North's hand will be a pretty big thorn in East's side. East loses 2, a overruff, 2, and 1 for down 1 (and that's struggling to get to dummy for the finesse!)

West opens 1NT, which North passes. East bids Stayman and West shows his . East probably then just jumps to 3NT, but if he were worried about his Kx getting led through, he could also make a game forcing and natural bid of 3. That also lets West show the 5th by bidding 3, and even though that doesn't really calm East's fears about , he probably just bids 3NT.
Sure enough, were under control the whole time, and declarer only has to lose 1 and 1 (coming to 4, 4, a bunch of , and up to 3 if the defense will let him, but it is hard to get around both outstanding Aces.)

North opens 1 and East overcalls 2. South probably just then goes to 4 directly (a little heavy, but a reasonable bid here - but also possible to go the other way and call this a limit raise) and so it's up to West to keep going, which he has the right shape for. 5 from West probably just draws a double from North, and everyone is satisfied with that (since South does have some defense outside of .)
This is the best either side could do - NS can't make 5 but they could make 4, so this is a good sacrifice. Declarer in 5X loses 2, 1, and 1.

East passes and South opens 1. West overcalls 2 (to try to make life a little more difficult), but it doesn't really even slow North down. In fact, North is probably good enough to cuebid 3 (stronger than 4 here), and South then may cuebid the A. North, having made his slam attempt, can then subside in 4, and South probably lets that go.
2 losers in the K and A mean this was a good stop!

South passes, West passes, and North opens 1. East passes (really not a good idea to overcall red with such a weak hand), and South bids 1. North has an easy jump to 4 over that, and that should be enough for South to get excited and bid 4NT. North shows all the missing Keycards, and then when South asks (maybe) for the Q, North can show it and the K, but as that denies the K, South will know the grand is not a great idea and stop in 6. (It's also entirely possible North opens 2NT, and when South transfers to , North superaccepts and South keeps going from there in the same way.) It won't be a surprise to see pairs playing in 4 as well when South doesn't press on.
This is a good place to land, but it's sad that these slams only really make if North is declaring, and that would probably only be true if North opened 2NT. We can see that 6NT (also North) would also work, but that's a little hard to get to. Here, that missing K is the only loser when the rest of that suit sets up pretty easily for pitching , unless South is playing this and West leads a on opening lead.

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

West opens 1 and East responds 1. West jump shifts into 3, so East tries to offer 3NT, but West corrects it to 4. (It's possible some players open this 4 Namyats , or stretch to bid 2, but that auction becomes quickly fraught with confusion.)
It's sad that this statistically freakish trump distribution is what's needed to sink this contract. Declarer loses 1 and 3 (!) tricks to miss this one.
