USBC Round of 16, Day 1
Online GCOC’s have revision date of 3/13/17. I think there is a later version somewhere with New tiebreak rules.

Slow Return
I would be very interested to hear how some of the expert commenters would "coach" the West player. Imagine West is your student, and brings this situation to you as a question. What should West's thought process be after the Dummy comes down -- including not just the bridge analysis ...
Implicit partnership agreements with new partners
