Brian, your comment that a perfect system is impossible is correct … but your suggestions get closer to the ideal. I would only add the recommendation others have made: more of a bonus for a low ranked team upsetting their opponents in the round of 64.

Robb, I'm sure with my lonely little pass, everyone is laughing at me. But, I look at this as trying to get the best result possible; not the best possible result.

For LHO to have jumped to 4 at these colors, I figure he must have a lot of shape. Seems like suits won't be breaking … and it appears our side doesn't have a fit.

I'd love to play 4X - but - don't know how to get there. Second best seems to go plus…. I'll take however many hundreds I can hope to get by passing.

Seems like at best, partner is likely to only have 5 hcp. So I discount the odds of running clubs on the auction.

Only Kxx of hearts and we have 5 tricks. With other leads, fearful they'll get 9 (or more) before we get ours.

Gene, it can be recorded even if a director is not summoned to the table.

Of course, the person who knows everything and can do everything has the answer! Thank you, Jan :)

Why is it clear there is a 9 card fit? Couldn't partner have made a takeout double with 3?

Why was the director not called when the opponent could not explain 4?

I used to stay at this Westin years ago for regionals. Was quite nice then.

I have a great view from my room - but … not only is there a burn in my carpet where someone left a hot iron on it (!) - my furnace blower needs to be replaced! Fortunately (LOL) they can do this while I'm playing this afternoon….

Debbie, I took super shuttle. $18 one way - but if you have 3 people to the same destination, it's $39 total. Efficient and fine.

My partner and I play that 3 immediately over 1NT is 5/5+ majors and forcing - but not a slam try. So, we play this as 5/5+ with interest in slam.

I do not think that this is mainstream, however. FWIW, 2 followed by 2 over 2 is invitational 5-4 majors. What you get to do if you are very old fashioned and play that 1NT - 2NT is a natural invite! :)

Chester was indeed a nice guy and a fine teammate. My good fortune to play on teams with him years ago in Chicago. RIP, Chester.

My personal preference is to either have a reasonably decent suit or a reasonably decent hand. This one is close - but - no cigar.

I realize that in today's world of hyperactivity and overcalling with any hint of a lead director, my view is very old fashioned. I also realize that sometimes my view causes a big loss. Nevertheless, I've also had pickups when my opposition gets too high, goes for a number, etc.

David - SO glad you are excited! And - my only teensy bit of advice. Try to relax as much as you can … focus on the game and enjoying yourself. Remember that all of us - beginners or world class players - never play perfectly. So - one hand at a time, and when it's over - on to the next.

Hope you and all the other participants have a great time. And please add my voice to those applauding the Rosenbergs and all the others who are contributing to creating the next generation of bridge players.

Of course, MY partner simply tells me to my face that I am a lunatic :) Sigh… (Afraid he is right some of the time!)
