Down Under Coup
With regard to the earlier play and defense, North had to keep all his spades or declarer could set up the spades with one loser (4 total), but if he throws the good 9, coming down to 4 spades and KT of clubs I don't see any winning ...
The Time Has Come - PPs for the Soloway and changes to PPs required for byes
Good catch Peter. Given how the numbers work and and that it is harder to win PPs now, I'm also OK with keeping a 20% bump for all byes.
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
Since replacing a disqualified team can be a mess (see my earlier comment for some bad scenarios), I'd suggest we be conservative in disqualifying a team. Thus I'd be OK with using items 1-4 as proposed.
The Time Has Come - PPs for the Soloway and changes to PPs required for byes
To give a little background: the USBF PP scale is 100 for Spingold or Vanderbilt win, 85 for a Reisinger win and there are 51 total PP's available from the USBC. So the increase of available PPs goes up in a ratio of 3.36 to 4.36, so ...
PPs for Soloway KO

Quick "Multi" story
Our opponents opened 1 and then bid 6 over the 1 overcall. If West passes, East might bid 5 over 2 and then W might well raise to 6, but of course that is a guess that need not be right.
WBF Anti-Doping Regulations
Generally Diuretics are banned since they can help mask other drugs. In particular hydrochlorothiazide (a commonly used diuretic for blood pressure) is on the banned list.
Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
Good advice from Kit, but even better if you have a phone number is to also call or text to confirm. There is a chance the sender's email account was hijacked and you could get a reply from the hacker rather than your friend (though that is harder for ...
GNT Qualifiers - Same Question, Different Year
In my version of Brian's first item, the professor after saying "It's obvious" looks at the last line written and pauses to say, "why is it obvious?" then goes on to fill a new blackboard with equations, before concluding that "yes, it was obvious". I'd add as ...
