NICKELL Wins USBC
I think the Lall team has a legitimate complaint with Kit's commentary if you go back and read it. Commentator's jinx in full effect.
Board 24
cool hand. After the spade switch there were possibilities for a memory squeeze using the heart spots, but I didn't see this play out at any table.
Never a dull moment
right there are lots of lines where you may make 12 tricks as well, so you could play for those. If we assume RHO is 4-3 in the reds, then we could play for spades 2-2 since this allows for a double squeezed with hearts as the communication (RHO must ...
Never a dull moment
hand 1 - many ways to make. Phil's is fine above. hand 2 - I don't see any reason to play trumps at all. RHO likely doesn't have 6 hearts, and is marked with 3 diamonds. So I ruff a diamond, AH, ruff a heart, cash 2 clubs ending ...

USBC round robin format
oh i was considering a case where I just need to not get blitzed to qualify. But in other cases, assuming the opponents of whoever "they" are do what I mentioned, then I think the the same applies.
USBC round robin format
I'm not convinced it actually makes you less likely to qualify, assuming you don't start playing worse because of 1 or 2 bad boards. If the set happens to flat, then sure, but most sets have 30 imp potential to begin with on perfect play (30 being a ...
