Improving the Seeding Process
Brian, your comment that a perfect system is impossible is correct ... but your suggestions get closer to the ideal. I would only add the recommendation others have made: more of a bonus for a low ranked team upsetting their opponents in the round of 64.
Robb Gordon's bidding problem: Jx Q AKJxxx ATxx
Robb, I'm sure with my lonely little pass, everyone is laughing at me. But, I look at this as trying to get the best result possible; not the best possible result. For LHO to have jumped to 4 at these colors, I figure he must have a lot ...
Fake it 'til you make it
Well done, Richard!
Danny Sprung's lead problem: Q8 AQ32 T9 A9765
Seems like at best, partner is likely to only have 5 hcp. So I discount the odds of running clubs on the auction. Only Kxx of hearts and we have 5 tricks. With other leads, fearful they'll get 9 (or more) before we get ours.
Should I be lookiing to report this behavior? (Part 1)
Gene, it can be recorded even if a director is not summoned to the table.
NICKELL Wins Vanderbilt
An amazing performance by all of the Nickell team against elite adversaries. Congratulations on the win and a stunning showing throughout!
Jacoby Swiss - MIA?
Of course, the person who knows everything and can do everything has the answer! Thank you, Jan :)
Why is it clear there is a 9 card fit? Couldn't partner have made a takeout double with 3?
Consequences of Forgetting an Agreement
Why was the director not called when the opponent could not explain 4?
Congratulations Sharon Osberg and teammates
Congratulations, Team!
