Meyer Kotkin's bidding problem: AQT642 J98 A5 A3
That was in fact my hand. AK sixth of hearts and Kx of spades. 3-2 small in minors but don't remember which way

Andy: This is where knowing that the event was GNT-B could influence which solution you implement when there are several good candidates. Here there are no good solutions other than starting the event over. All teams came prepared to play two days for a huge stipend and chance at a ...

Well, I couldn't think of a perfect solution. Even rescheduling for another weekend had lots of major flaws.

What I would have liked to do is give some award for the afternoon session as an IMP Pairs. Then restart the Flight B GNT event and instead of playing the planned 28 boards at night, play 35. Then add an extra session the next morning of 14 boards to ...
