4333 over 1NT
And if the opener has a singleton, albeitva bid honor, which I believe under ACBL rules is now allowed? Did the sim include this case?
Number of qualifiers in the Transnational teams event
I agree with you. Not an easy decision. However there are some other considerations. How much time can the players spend in Lyon? Do they want a compition that lasts more than 5 days? Also, the BB, Venice and d'Orsi are the true world championships. A victory in the ...
Number of qualifiers in the Transnational teams event
True, one more day, but for only two tables, not 120 if the BAM was limited to 2 days.
Number of qualifiers in the Transnational teams event
The non qualifiers can play in another team event (2 day BAM) if they choose to do so for no additional cost. So the entry fee, reduced for teams composed of only FFB members, effectively covers 5 days of bridge. So for the WBF and the organizing bridge federation, it ...

Assuming minor suit stayman was not used, with a minimum Pass, otherwise 5 of a minor to show 4 cards in that minor, 5H/S to show 5 clubs and 4 diamonds / 5 diamonds and 4 clubs, and 6 minor to show 5 of that minor. 6NT with a max.
Playing conditions in Montecatini
The restaurants in and around Montecatini were excellent and the prices were extremely reasonable. The hotels were also very cheap and and the rooms excellent. For non bridge playing spouses, there was plenty to see close by. The locals were all friendly and the level of English spoken by the ...
