No. 3NT would be an offer to play.
Ruling question regarding an unalerted jump cuebid
David, what does your Ouija board suggest about E/W going on to 7?
Break In Tempo
I'm not so sure I would disallow this. While double caters to whatever West was thinking about, I don't think the hesitation suggests 3. After all, if you switch West's clubs and diamonds then 3 is likely a significantly worse spot than defending 2 ...
It's a shame Kevin won USA 1 in 2013. He blew his chance to do well in the USA 2 competition as well. Of course, if he wins this year he is out of the running for next year.

Support Double with Subminimum?.
Unless I was intending my opening as a psyche, I don't think I wouldn't double based on strength. There are situations that I would bypass the double to bid NT. For example, AKJ, xxx, Axxxx, xx and the auction, 1D-P-1H-1S, I would bid 1NT rather than double.
Matchups in the USBC Round of 8
I watched most of Max's match with complete mixed emotions. On the one hand, I was rooting for Max as the underdog and as a frequent contributor here. On the other, I've known Aaron, Andrew, and Chris for about 20 years and would love to see them qualify ...
