We did not want a BAM movement, we wanted a regular team movement, what most of the players think of as a Swiss movement. They accept a short round robin, but would be against a movement of playing all the teams before comparison.

Jonathan - We had brackets of 9. No sharing between tables, but matches played the same physical boards. I personally duplicated the boards, and there were no duplication errors in the 128 sets made for the whole weekend.

Ping, the problem with keeping the board sets in the section is that they will need to be moved to the next session for the second round of the round robin. For example, A1-A3 has boards 1-6, B1-B3 has boards 7-12, C1-C3 has 13-18. For the second half, A needs 7-12, B needs 13-18, and C needs 1-6. By passing as Daniel suggested, the boards don't need to be moved en masse. We tried the way you suggest, it was much slower, and logistically difficult.

Luckily, for us, the pairs were playing the same hands, so we let the players know this, so they could find them on ACBLLive there.

I would have liked to delivered a ruling earlier, but wasn't able to perform the tasks mentioned above any quicker, as I had to also oversee to other tables in the event and also the Mini-Spingold.

Ruling was made as soon as possible. Consultation with other directors was required, then polling performed, then more consultation with other directors to review the results of the polling.

As to the time, they were told they were running behind and were monitored. They caught up and finish the match within the total time allotted.

The conditions of contest stated that the palyers have 2 hours and 20 minutes per 15 board segment. They are given 5 minutes at the start of each segment to discuss system, and a 10 minute break between segments. That comes to 5 hours. So, the rules were enforced.

So, he was impatient with himself?

Note that it did say that South impatiently made his statement. That implies that he knew that West was on lead, and was taking time to do so.

To play devil's advocate, the problem with players taking a different action than the one the think they “would always do” is that they may be wrong in trying to not take advantage. For example, say I think that I would always take a certain action, but think that others would take a different action that is not suggested by the UI. Say that, if one were to take a poll, one would find that everyone would take the same action as I would. Now, I have taken an action no one would take. If I get a bad board, I am at a disadvantage. If I get a good board, it could still be adjusted.

I believe the main reason that it is not seen much is that in clubs and at tournaments, it was not feasible back when the results were hand scored, so it became the standard. Even as the capability to score IMPs came along, as in any area, there is always much resistance to change.

Barry, sorry about putting “my” interpretation, it was late. How about “another”?

If they wanted your interpretation, they could have put “only”, but if they wanted my interpretation, they could have put “at least”. So it seems that it IS ambiguous. My experience has been that it has been taken to mean “forcing for at least one round”. I believe the idea is that the opponent need to know that the auction could end before the 4th hand had a chance to bid again.

The part you posted is not the committee decision. It is the basis of the appeal, it was written by the appellant.

Starkowski meant his 3 bid to show spades, but, according to Kwiecen, it is a transfer, and therefore asks for a heart stopper. They didn't have their system notes with them, and would have had to produce them if it had mattered.

We get them started right away no problem. Again, I've used your software, but don't know how it handles teams that want to play up, teams that don't want to be bumped down, etc.
