How would you rule?
Matchpoints or IMPs? With a combined 28+ hcp, a lot of hands take the same number of tricks at 3NT and 4 of a major. A pointless and crazy strategy at IMPS, but the extra 10 points for the NT contract can garner a lot of additional matchpoints. As East ...

Effect of the Recent ACBL Rules about opening 1NT with a singleton
Do the ACBL Rules mandate that the Workman point count system be the only point count system we can use? In the original example, the hand evaluates to 17.75 hcp in Kaplan-Rubens, suggesting that the hand might be too strong for a 1N opening and that reversing into Diamonds ...
