Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
The NABC Swiss has platinum match awards, and even if you don't get past the first day, you're apt to win at least one or two matches.
World Championship Humor
I heard it as "Burn's Law of Total Trumps": "...select one where you have more total trumps than the opponents."
The walrus opens 1N. Then what?

Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
Well, I was trying to be a bit less dry than just "100% N, 75% N, etc." I tried to be also sufficiently vague as not to impose actual opinions on anyone. Evidently I didn't succeed for everyone. I am curious to know what you would have voted if ...
Missed Vulnerable Game (ATB)
At double-dummy you lose only two tricks: you can afford to ruff the third round of spades high, and then finesse in trumps.
