You are in the fourth seat, and the bidding goes:
1D-1S-P-?
Your partner never or almost never overcalls with a 4 card suit, but the overcall may be light (8 hcp, or 6-7 with a decent suit).
What is your bid with the following hands?
1) xxx-xx-xxxx-xxxx
2) xxxx-x-xxxx-xxxx
3) Kxx-xx-xxxx-xxxx
4) Kxxx-x-xxxx-xxxx
5) Kxx-Qxxx-xx-AJxx
6) Kxx-Qxxx-xx-AQxx
7) KJx-Qxxx-xx-AQxx
8) KJx-KQxx-xx-AQxx
9) KJx-AKxxx-Ax-AKx

1) xxx-xx-xxxx-xxxx

Pass. My 2S bid doesn't promise squat, but I am not too thrilled about bidding it with this hand simply because I don't want to encourage a spade lead.

2) xxxx-x-xxxx-xxxx

3S. Preemptive, Law of total tricks.

3) Kxx-xx-xxxx-xxxx

2S. Perfect hand for it.

4) Kxxx-x-xxxx-xxxx

3S.

5) Kxx-Qxxx-xx-AJxx

2d. Sound raise to 2S or better.

6) Kxx-Qxxx-xx-AQxx

2d. Ditto.

7) KJx-Qxxx-xx-AQxx

2d ditto

8 ) KJx-KQxx-xx-AQxx

2d, I will bid again if partner bids 2S

9) KJx-AKxxx-Ax-AKx

2H (if forcing)
