The GNT's, a modest proposal
For a geographically large district like D16, travel and hotel cost can be significant for teams residing away from the host city. I don't recall ever seeing any Mexican teams in the D16 GNT and I rarely see Mexican pairs in the NAP. How about a hybrid unit/district ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Yes, I think one major cause of attendance drop in D16 was the overlapping events with Super/A/B/C all at the same time. Previous years were Super/B at one sectional and A/C at another, which allows Cs to play in B, Bs in A, and As ...

Please have an admin move this to the main forum as it is relevant to all players. You will get more responses there.
How would you rule, and would you request a ruling?
Bad ruling, IMO. "Another diamond" is clearly "another high diamond". Declarer's intent was clear.

The GNT's, a modest proposal

The GNT's, a modest proposal
Max' suggestion would mesh well with the other 0-10K events. The 6K limit for GNTs is kind of arbitrary.

There are a couple of lines you could try. 1) Try for 2-2 trumps or else the Q dropping doubleton. You would play A, Q and if trumps split, play AK and ruff a diamond if they are 3-2 or ruff out the queen if South had four. Or, if ...
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: K762 QJ KQ752 T7
Gotta make sure to beer on this hand.
Bid and play: BBB(m) in BWS
Although it can be made, I would have gone set. On a heart lead I would play A, A, J, 4 to J, then club to the Q and king. Later I would play for either black suit squeeze or for the J on my left, neither of which works.
