Very similar to last time around, except the mixed teams is a day longer. This either means the teams finalists drop into the pairs final, or the pairs final is reduced to one day. I suspect the latter - not having a “proper” (two-day) final would be a shame, but I can see there are upsides as well.

As Richard has said, the 3 bidders are made to look pretty silly by the dummy - AJ9 Ax Qxx xxxxx. Fair to say LHO's 2 bid (K J98xx xx AQJxx) wouldn't have been everyone's choice.

I am interested you refer to the “feeble spade spots”, Eric. I think Q8765 may be worth quite a lot compared with Q5432.

I wouldn't exactly describe myself as a LTC aficionado, but I wouldn't think it terribly controversial to count the six and two of hearts as losers in the circumstances!

Not sure you can go past 3NT with this hand, Why can't partner have good clubs and bad spades?

Given that you don't like to pass 1NT, and opener's 2 rebid shows hearts, I question the wisdom of allowing the bid to be based on a five-card diamond suit.

Yes, think the wording needs changing, to refer to qualification of the team in the second event, not the individual.

I consider this style to be somewhat common (in the context of transfer responses to 1) and somewhat misguided.

For “umpires”, read “lawyers”.

While imagining what would happen without screens is useful in some situations, I don't think this is one of them. When considering an adjustment, the non-offending side are only considered to have the correct explanations, not the knowledge that someone has misbid.

All of the video evidence was from that championship. Time flies, eh?
