“Seems interesting that ”old style“ is natural when back in the day opening bids were sounder and so were raises.”

Perhaps back in the day, opener was less likely to have an 11 count than in 2018 but more likely to have a 3-count?

Paul: In my case the interest is due to Flight B GNT / NAP, but I think it's a little strange that players in limited events like Gold Rush Pairs will have to change the system they've been using for years. (Of course most of them will have no idea it's been made illegal.)

Because they are limited to < 3000 MPs?

I do plan to ask our GNT coordinator.

I assume GNT/NAP B and C will use the Basic+ chart.

“h. A NT opening bid or overcall that contains no voids, no more than one singleton,
which must be an ace, king, or queen, and that does not contain 10 or more
cards in two suits combined.”

You can continue to play your system, as long as you get dealt the right singleton. :)

Could be worse, I never received the email that brackets could be filled out, and forgot to do so until it was too late. :(

“There was no alert.”

This is why I voted for a procedural penalty.

Well if it was so automatic why did it take you over 3 months to answer?! :) :)

I wish I could remember why I posted this problem.

Yes, I think with 6 card support for one of my suits he could find a call at the 2 level.

It's also weird to claim on a finesse when you have no idea what will happen when it fails (East may or may not have a heart left). That's why I think declarer forgot about the K.

No but I would take a look at my driver's license … and the name on it is not “Jesus”, so I'm not saving.

These type problems are like throwing darts at yourself and hoping you miss.

A co-worker made the following observation that shows the two cases are not symmetrical:

The number of 3-die rolls that produce 1->2 is 12 (x 1 2 and 1 2 x).

But the number of such rolls producing 6->6 is only 11.

Double at this level suggests defending, but perhaps this is not the best agreement.
