Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
Bob, the one time I played 5 handed in the Swiss was in Toronto in 2011. I knew that if we qualified for day 2 that I couldn't stay for the second session and still drive home and make it to work the next day. So while the team ...
Knockouts
They went from 3-ways to 4-ways in the Vanderbilt and Spingold sometime between 1999 and 2002.

You could also take the SEPTA train to Jefferson Station which is pretty much right under the hotel.
Weather in Philadelpia - Heard there is bad weather - Help
I believe it is supposed to stop snowing here (about 10 miles from PHL airport) around 5pm tonight. So hopefully anyone with a flight arriving tomorrow should be fine.
Play Tempo Ruling
I'd probably split the ruling. Declarer should realize that North was busy woolgathering because the two scenarios are stiff Q and choice between Q/J. In the latter case 9 times out of 10 the player has already decided and probably plays it even quicker than the stiff. That ...
Andy Muenz's lead problem: K92 AKQ QT764 98
The disadvantage of a heart lead is that declarer could easily be 2-4-4-3 or 3-4-4-2 and you are just helping setup his 13th heart. Not saying it's right or wrong, just what was going through my mind when I was on lead.

In KO matches I think it is perfectly fine to withdraw, although you should not be expected to. In one of my early forays into the Spingold we were down by about 200 against Hampson/Greco after 3 sessions. Our team was in it for the experience and they understood ...
Help, please. Interesting or humorous deals wanted.
There's always the Duke of Cumberland hand (also used in Ian Fleming's Moonraker where N-S are cold for 7C on a combined 8 count (with declarers RHO having a 31 count). https://www.bridgehands.com/D/Duke_of_Cumberland_Hand.htm
Andy Muenz's bidding problem: A KT98532 T8632 ---
No one who has answered so far would qualify as a BBO robot which bid 2 hearts and played there opposite my KJxxx, J, AJxx, Axx. Making 4 but still worth 61%.
ACBL Big Ideas - Augmenting Rank/Point Structure
About 20 years ago in the ACBL bulletin (I think it was Jan or Feb 1999) there was an article about new ranks above LM based in part on merit rather than strictly masterpoints. For example, the next rank might have required at least 750 mp and at least one ...
