Serious 3NT question
In your favorite set of agreements, just how narrow is the range of the 1 opening hand here? For us, it's anything from just above a non-minimum (rough equivalent of 15hcp playing strength) to just below game-forcing (rough equivalent of 19-20 playing strength since we are aggressive in ...
Peculiar ethical situation
I may or may not agree with this comment depending on whether you are suggesting (a) different behavior for the whole event, or (b) different behavior for this round (against an overmatched C team). I too played in this event, and we too got blitzed by Art's team. This ...

I suspect if this were a teams problem, double would be the overwhelming favorite. The matchpoints aspect is what IMO makes it interesting...

Congratulations to the non-doublers. RHO held JTxx in diamonds, LHO had 7 spades that ran with RHO's help, and partner couldn't take either of the first two rounds of clubs.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: KJT94 --- KJ4 QT872
Ah...it was 4 down 3 Am open to comments on my reasoning behind bidding game...figure if we have a misfit we're down anyway, and if we have a good fit I want to be in game.
