Congrats everyone.

Special mention for Arthur Zhou and Michael Hu, I vugraphed the U16 finals match all day and they showed some very strong declarer play. The Q play on board #5 in the morning was very impressive. Opponents also had some nice plays in the match, they found the K lead against 4 on board 23.

Also congraatulations Richard Jeng and team Xiao!

For the curious, opener has AT ATX AQX AKQT9. My main question is how to diagnose responder's extra heart length.

Thanks all , part of what I was wondering is how strong the inference is that , if partner has a stiff spade , it is likely to be the K for the 1NT rebid . Partners hand : K AXX AXXXX QXXX

Agree. Not enough information to know what's going on in declarer's head. 95% of the time I am going to give him this trick (he's probably about to say ‘I play my K, then, you have to make a trick with the Q’ – then of course I tell him the Q is coming down) but it's worth hearing a line of play.

My plan is to leave the table and buy a powerball ticket immediately. I expect to win the millions.

Congratulations GA Tech – well deserved after lots of hard work this year!

Congratulations also to Giorgio Casinovi the faculty sponsor of the club, and thanks to Patty Tucker who does a lot of work with the club as well.

Looks great! Nice job.
If not too difficult, would be cool to implement “log in thru facebook” on the app.

Yes! This too. I also find it hard to find other strong juniors locally to play with

Much of this has already been said but a couple of reasons, in my experience, that juniors may not play bridge.

1. Bad experiences with rudeness at the club.

2. Player age, feeling that they are the youngest person at the club.

3. Lack of availability of games. I think this is underemphasized. In some places there are very few night or weekend games, juniors sometimes can't play very much even if they want to.

4. Some just don't want to play tournament bridge, are happy playing for fun w friends.

I also think the collegiate bridge bowl does WONDERFUL things for the game. I can think of juniors who won't go to a bridge club but will compete in that.

Cool thread.

Yes I agree I think there is a non-zero chance the opponents have misjudged

I agree with the “no bulletin article” votes… I understand the sentiment, but think it's important to acknowledge that UNC reversed their decision, may not need to appear to embarrass them.

Yes I agree, Emil can you tell us a little more about your results? What did you measure – the distribution of scores given double dummy play? How many times did you run the simulation?
