2017 NAP-B report: system wins/losses
Same as yours actually, except 1 = 8-10 balanced.
2017 NAP-B report: system wins/losses
I also played the first board in 3NT by North and won the heart lead on the board, then after two rounds of spades were ducked, crossed to dummy to play a third round. On this trick West pitched an encouraging club before following suit so after a quick director ...
Foundations of hand patterns
In the problems with the urn, the original problem was really something like "You have an urn containing four balls of which an odd number are red. (Aside from this constraint, all assignments of colors to balls are equally likely.) You draw one ball, which you observe to be white ...
Poor pair game movements
Same for 24 boards and 8 tables, and a relay in a 3-board round almost never requires waiting for a board to play.
Identifying the player in a lead a problem

Asymmetry in Matchpoint Scoring
You will also see that scoreboard if you just look at the scores in the other direction in Grigol's example. So, you can't understand this effect (if it exists) one board at a time. The claim is that finding the criss-cross squeeze is highly correlated with skill, while ...
Sportsmanlike dumping???
It's true that there aren't the same considerations involving spectators, but instead we have the opponents to consider, who are spending their money and time to enter the event, of which this round is a not insignificant portion. Their idea of playing bridge might not be trying to ...
