Can I ever bid NT naturally beyond the three level?
I play it's just aces, but that's my preference for less memory issues for something that rarely comes up. With specific aces, if you need 1 and partner has 2, you need a way to iron out if he has the one you need. I'm sure you ...

Play Pass/Dbl inversion, then you can play 4N is natural here (whether this hand is a 4N bid is up to you).
Jacoby 2NT?
Until I switched to 2N = constructive w/both minors, I reversed these (as others have mentioned). 3 is clubs, 2N FS in s - to avoid wrong-siding NT when I have the hand.
dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
"The one who's asking for removal of bidding boxes is the one trying to turn the clock back to the Nixon era." I could comment on that, but suspect it would be removed.

The GNT's, a modest proposal
Unless you're in the Open flight, qualification is at a sectional in Jacksom, MS. Not that hard to get to. And if referring to Open Fit, that was tried online 3 years ago and we got 2 teams, as I mentioned above.

HI Express.... :-)

Ai-Tai, my recollection is slightly different. Top 4 get to pick from bottom 8. 5 thru 8 are randomly drawn and paired with a randomly drawn team that is left from 9-16. Or course, I may be mis-remembering.

OK, Gene, fess up. Did you have to look up adsorption?
