The Worst Convention Ever
I've been playing a lot of Dutch Doubleton and it's actually very effective. Henk is right that the 1S bid is not a negative, it just requests a relay to 1NT opposite the weak notrump type (or something else opposite a "real" 1H rebid).
NICKELL is USA1
Congrats guys
Great lead, partner!
Nice article. Thank you.
Improving the Seeding Process
I like this idea, too. As we all know, the matchups can be very tough in any round, depending on who you draw, and almost universally difficult from R16 on. This means that a strong, low-seeded team (such as NRK this year) that won 2 upsets (one monumental) is still ...

Late Start in USA - Spain Match
Of all the American pairs , Bathurst - Lall are in my opinion without a doubt at or near the top of the ethical heap. Justin is one of the most ethical players I've ever played against. It's certainly possible that they don't pass a lot in 3rd seat ...
PLAYOFF in Mixed USBC
Josh, I could not agree with you more. You summarized my thoughts perfectly. The 3 IMP penalty is in my opinion completely uncalled for. Also, congrats on your Swiss win. What a performance.
