Format for 5 team Round Robin?
A BAM movement works well with an odd-sized section, although it's not barometer (Pairs down 2 tables, boards down one table.) The 5-table movement envisioned for the Women's Trials RR will play two 7-board rounds at a time. You play what would be the first and last rounds ...
We need to Decide about the Bye Requirements in light of the Soloway
Michael: I agree, that we don't know for sure what the Soloway will "look like." In the interest of supporting the new event, and giving it the best chance to "look good," and succeed, it makes sense to me to rate it as equivalent to the Vanderbilt and Spingold ...

Who Goes There?
Perfect, Max Thanks!!

@Max: I could be mistaken, but I believe the answer is no, the opponents would not get redress. There needs to be an infraction to trigger an adjustment. The misbid is not an infraction. And, as previously noted, the "correct" explanation is not an infraction either -- in fact it is ...
What are opponents entitled to
@MR: For the law hungry, see the commentary section on pages 12-13 about Law 20F linked to from here: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/wbf-commentary-on-the-2017-laws/ Ton Kooijman, Chair of the WBF Laws Commission, published this document, as an aid to directors in applying the 2017 Laws. It supports the view ...
