So you routinely bid 3N without a stop? I suspect strength without a stop is more frequent than 55+Majors where 3N is the limit of the hand.

Doing it and agreeing to do it are not the same.

Nothing to disclose if it is not an agreement or an implied agreement.

Perhaps you meant this to be a multiple selection poll?

The social scene immediately after the game. Nowadays everyone rushes home/elsewhere.

Animated post mortems.

Dealing hands for another table from hand forms the director handed out before the start.

Win/Loss Swiss events with huge fields.

KS Controlled psychs.

The old doubled contract scoring scale.

Broader mix of age groups.

Raphael - I wasn't able to turn formatted characters on. But using the Character Map and printing the characters to a blank word doc then making them the colors I wanted allowed me to paste the colored version into the correction (they displayed in black with an asterisk after them). Using word 2016.

I can now do

Admitting my confusion. The depth of awards chart says 5-6 is 2 and 7-8 is 3 and 9-12 is 4. If that governs here then 11 win overalls. However in the regional section, p 18, we have this:

C. BRACKETED SWISS/ROUND ROBIN TEAMS
The masterpoint awards for Bracketed Swiss/Round Robin Team events are based upon the same formula as for Bracketed Knockout events. Adjustments have been made to the formula to take into account the fact that this is a two session event playing six to eight boards per match instead of the three or four sessions in a Knockout, playing twenty-four or more boards in each match. The Basic Award is the Computed Award from the first table below, multiplied by the Bracket Size Adjustment Factor from the second table.

Sigh.

We use frivolous to good result. Sometimes only one of us is limited by the previous auction.

Phil, with 5-8 teams, 3rd and 4th must play to receive MPs. 9 teams give 3/4 team awards without a played result. All bracket sizes award 4 teams unless 3/4 refuse to play the last round. See p18 http://web2.acbl.org/codification/MPBOOK.pdf

Well, almost. There are cases where markets cannot possibly achieve the desired result, that’s when laws step in. Air pollution in the 70s is one example. Health effects required changes markets could not accomplish.

Brian, with 6-7-7-7 you get to give out 16 mp winners. With 9-9-9 only 12.

We need 4 tricks to set the contract. This isn’t match points.
