The "New NT" (a.k.a., the Self-Rescuing Kamakazi NT)
The system seems to be "Transfer Bailey 2 Bids" but I like the new title better. The hand is rather restricted 5-3-3-2 or 6-3-2-2 21.1%, 10-12HCP 26.4% or 1 hand in 19. That seems too rare to require unnatural acts in the rest of the bidding system. Note ...
The "New NT" (a.k.a., the Self-Rescuing Kamakazi NT)
Interesting idea. However I don't like it. My problem is a 4 card major with 11-15HCP in a forcing Club system and not opening a preemptive 1NT. It is not that I don't play 4 card majors. In fact I play the (much hated) Dinkin Major with an ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
We seem to be far afield of the original request. Maybe we should agree on one of the two proposals that seem to have support in each category. 1-Either "any 4-5 man team" or "any 4-5 man team that played 60% of the boards." 2-The substitute team (if needed) is ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
I am OK with that.
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
I think what most are struggling with is finding an "objective" method of what is essentially a "subjective" decision. I therefore propose an "objective" way to make a "subjective" decision. If the player or players dropping off a team have a significantly greater number of seeding points than the remaining ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
NO. The team's choice of how much each player played tells me that at least one of the two players who each played 50% of the hands is weak and the resultant team was unlikely to have won as a foursome.
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
I understand but I don't see an objective standard. Let's say my team hires Meckwell and we win the trials with Meckwell playing 75% of the boards as they usually do. I would agree that if Meckwell later dropped off our team we would not have won. However ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
A similar situation happened in the NAT trials in District 23 in 2017. The winning team defeated us in the finals then "encouraged" the client to withdraw so they could add a "strong" pair from the 3rd place team. I ma ok with the pair who dropped or was dropped ...

Rancho Mirage
Bermuda Bowl-1959 Segment 1
In 1958 the "early viewgraph" effort was pioneered by Jan's GRANDMOTHER. Careful Dave, mistakes that that can cost big time. Tom
