Solutions:


1. 1
. It is usually a good idea to bid a decent five-card suit at the one-level, while the price is right. Although you may redouble to show strength, it does not follow that a suit takeout denies such strength. The modern style is to treat a new suit at the one-level as forcing for one round, as it would be if East had not doubled.

2. 2
. The most popular current treatment of a single jump in a new suit is to describe a good six-card suit with little else, something like a marginal weak 2opening. 1is not wrong but partner will place you with a hand inappropriate for this weak jump response.

3. Redouble. Again, 1
would not be incorrect, but your opponents will often be in deep trouble. Start with this value-showing (10+ HCP) bid, and double the opponents in their escape suit. Alas, partner will often have a weak one- or two-suited hand when the auction starts this way and you are strong; he will take action before you can get at the bad guys. In that case, you will probably finish in 3NT.
 

4. Redouble. First, send a message about strength, then, support hearts cheaply. Partner will place you with three-card support and roughly an average hand. A new suit at the two-level is nonforcing in standard practice, suggesting a good suit, so 2, is entirely inappropriate. Most tournament players use a jump to 2NT as a limit raise (or better) in support of hearts, but it is best to reserve that special treatment for hands with four-card support.

5. 1NT. Your weak club holding should not steer you away from your natural bid. Your hand is not quite good enough for redouble but strong enough to compete. A direct raise to 2
requires at least three-card support. Over the double, it has become fashionable to raise only with weak hands. With a normal sound raise to 2, some of these pairs incorporate an artificial raise, such as 2. It's a good idea, but it's not for everyone.
