This is key, a 15 HCP hand can be weaker than a 14 HCP hand.
If in NTs Ts and 5 card suits can strengthen your hand.

Re-evaulate your hand with the bids. e.g. A bid or double on your right strengthens your hand if you have unsupported Ks, but weakens it if it is on your left.
A key tool on evaluating your hand is Losing Trick Count.
