Indeed, instead of dwelling on what is wasted, it makes more sense to look at what is working…

Not sure what the question is – if the rest of the hand is the same, KJx > Kxx > Qxx > Jxx/xxx.

BTW, Qxx does have nuisance value when the AK are in the same hand…

What if (say) LHO had 6s, RHO 2s?

“After 1-2…In all cases opener could be the declarer.”

In spades?

“They are bridge pariahs and will always be so. The same with the Doctors and the others.”

That remains to be seen…

I do not recall seeing anything that would make me think that any titles or masterpoints have been vacated. IIRC, there were adjustments made for ACBL seeding points.

Maybe a 1-day suspension, a day of your choice?

Another consideration – who is playing better today?

Form of scoring, state of the event can enter into the decision as well.

I jumped at the chance to play a KO match against Moses Ma et al. Set traps* in the bidding, they always found the right lead. The most egregious was not leading partner's (possibly canape) overcalled suit, not leading their own QJT9x, no, finding a lead from xx against 3NT, catching partner's KQJTx.

*in particular, bidding NT without regard to having a stopper in RHO's overcall.

T.R.S. I imagine.

Invented something somewhat similar, basic idea was that either opened 1 (SAF, 16+) or opened as if responding to a strong 1, unless 12-15 (which passed).

“Talking about that 2♦ can be passed I like to know that partner will never pass in pass-out position.”

And probably prefer that the opponents not know that, else they have even more reason to pass 2.
