Thanks for the post about this cool hand. Jeff Goldsmith wrote an article about it closer to the time when it happened, and it has a few different details. The cards are played in a slightly different order, but it still comes down to the squeeze: http://jeff-goldsmith ...
An Infrequent Squeeze Hand History From Kitzbühel
West pitched Q on the A.

And the comparisons are even more limited than that. For flight C you would only be able compare results when the board is played C vs C. About 1/9 of the plays of each board are available for flight C comparisons on average (assuming 1/3 of the pairs ...
ACBL Rank Survey
Thanks for the information. I was not aware of the existence of this part of the website, and the email was signed as "Bridge Committee", which was not exactly helpful. It seems to me that lifetime total MP is a poor indicator of current skill level. The discussion that happened ...
