Answers to Above:
1.1NT - add a half a point for every 10 attached to an honor. The "stuffing" -10+ 9's improve the hand)
2.1 NT- The diamond suit is to weak for an invitational bid of 3 d. As you have points located in the doubletons treat this hand as a NT opener.
3. 1 d-Open the 6-card diamond suit first and rebid the second suit - spades TWICE to show a 6/5 shape..
