Greg Herman's bidding problem: AJx xxx xx AQJxx
This hand is too pure to pass, notwithstanding the 5332, wrong doubleton.
Does a hand for this bid exist?
Maybe it shows xx xx AKQJxxx xx. Hoping they get to 3NT.
Breaking ties in KO matches
One other thought on this subject. Since the USBF allows the use of split scores in rulings, 0.5 IMPs might actually create a tie instead of breaking one. Perhaps the team we are giving the 'half' to should really just get 0.01 IMPs.
Breaking ties in KO matches
Reductio ad Absurdum. This is not giving teams some massive advantage. It is giving teams that did better in the 'regular season' an advantage in the playoffs. I'd guess about 1 in 100 matches are ties, then you have to factor in the chance that the teams did not ...
Breaking ties in KO matches
I agree with using PP's; and would also use them if the two teams tied in both the RR and the KO stage. It won't matter for 2018, but for 2021 (?), I'd also suggest using the winner of a previous KO match.
Slow Play in Round Robin

A Calculable Matchpoint Bidding Decision
Interesting hand. You use the after the fact results of how many pairs bid each contract to calculate what was the highest expectation contract. However, that takes into account only partner's actual hand. On other hands the frequencies would be different. Did he have 6? If so, I ...
Controlling noise at your club
Get some insulation. Carpeting does wonders for absorbing sound. Of course it absorbs coffee pretty well too, and there is the matter of cleaning it..
Eliminate sequestering in last 2 or 3 Round Robin matches?
It's not only dumping, but shooting tends to randomize, too. I'd keep sequestering.
