Kayden Ge's bidding problem: T2 A AKJ9832 K86
My opponents opened a weak NT and had the auction to themselves to 6D
Brandon Ge's bidding problem: AQJT732 T AK9 97
Does 2S show some convertible values, and not just values for a spade contract?
Howell problem - how to fix on Bridgemate?
If the movement cannot be edited it would be better to leave the scores as is and adjust the matchpoints for the two involved pairs for the entire session. This way you do not have factoring for the other pairs and the matchpoints are all calculated for you.

18 bids in a row
I've had 7, with both sides bidding 1C(16+)-1D(majors or minors)-1H(5-7 any shape)-1S(Pass/Correct); 1NT(16-18)-2C-(minor)-2D(transfer) after which things broke down.
ACBL Live über alles
I have run swisses with all results in a BAM section in ACBLScore. To post to ACBL Live you must delete all sections other than the swiss in ACBLScore, and you cannot upload BWS file. (You cannot also include a pairs game, although you can have more than one Swiss ...
