Mentor game - Ideas. Call for ideas.
I don't think you're going to find a format that pleases everybody. Have to try a few things and see how people react. You might force the mentors to sit North and West. That way all the C players will have the same problems and discussing them may ...
ATB - Languished in 4 diamonds when slam was almost cold
"I think this is the take-away from this thread." Well, it's a good thing to take away, but it shouldn't be the only thing. If North thinks he isn't worth a game force, playing 4 forcing won't help; North will just make some other underbid ...

ATB - Missed minor game at matchpoints
To some extent it depends on N-S agreements about 4 of a minor bids. We play most 4 bids forcing, but not this one: the partnership has tried to reach 3NT but can't do without a spade stopper. (A direct raise of 3 to 4 would ...
After a Passed-Hand 2/1, III
We also use this principle, although the underlying assumptions of our system are different.
