I am not sure what Mechwell is thinking and why they did what they did. I do understand what I think their logic may be.
Do not stretch for Not vulnerable game.
No Spots to work with.
North hand is worth only 12 points on the K/R hand evaluator.
Once North has devalued the hand. South looks at his hand and K/R values the South hand at 9.65
To me this is all understandable. Once Boye Brogeland devalued a hand against me, If I remember correctly, he devalued the KQ tight holding. It was the right thing to do for his side. It is fun to watch great players.

The last time I was in Gatlinburg 3 years ago, the director welcomed me as a Junior. I was 56.

I agree South should have bid 4nt, then 5nt asking for Kings, if you play specific Kings one the diamond King is found, 7 must be bid

In my defense, it is hard to claim a contract that you do not see all the cards until after the game. under all circumstances I always have a pseudo squeeze.
If West has KQxx of diamonds and Jxxx of clubs, there is no squeeze.

I once went to a National in Albuquerque if I remember correctly. One morning I went to Yoga class and while we were waiting for the class to start. A regular student walked in and looked very sad. The teacher asked what was wrong. The student said, the meanest and rudest people were at the convention this week, she said they were bridge players!! I felt very embarrassed.

Once at a National, a top woman player, bid to 4 spades and I held AKT9, xx, xxx, Kxxx, my partner did make an overcall. So I doubled and we got a top board. The next round that same top woman player elbowed me in the head. I felt like I was playing hockey.

Bridge scores posted!!! What about having BBO online, where people can watch top flight bridge being played? I would really enjoy watching Martel and Zia a few hands on BBO. To me, this is the ACBL’s biggest commercials to get people aspired to play good bridge. Why the whole week can be a commercial, EVERTIME a top event is being played, some great pair should be online. I do not see why the board of directors does not see this as an opportunity to get the bridge out there.
