Thanks for posting. Very helpful.
Jump support after reverse
In my only partnership that has included extensive work on the reverse structure, jumps in opener's 2nd suit (the "R" suit in our parlance) are never natural. We play this one as a splinter in support of .
Anyone heard ANYTHING on how long live bridge will be crippled for?
This raises a design question. Haven’t the proposed designs been based on tablets staying at each table (possibly wired in some proposals)? For a MP event, to deal with virus concerns it would seem the tablets need to move with the players, and possibly be owned by the players ...
Another Grosvenor opportunity
I abstained because of knowing the hand. At our table it was ever more clear, as South had responded to a asking bid, showing exactly xx. I did suggest that E--a pretty new player--should have considered dropping the Q.
Hesitation Auction

What does this 3!d bid mean?
In "Preempts from A to Z", by Ron Andersen and Sabine (then) Zenkel, hence the title, the authors say "majors". I believe Mike Lawrence also listed that somewhere. I play this in a primary partnership, but would not risk it undiscussed.

12-16 looks heavy for 2 openings. I think 11-15 is more typical, and have seen good 10's opened, or even 10-15 ranges specified. So there is decent room for game. I like 1NT to be 17-19 or 16+-19 over limited 2-level openings like this.
Wolff Relay Sequence
We use the MIT variation of Wolff in which you can show both 6-4 (3, then 4) and 5-5 (4 immediately). Yes, that means Gerber isn’t available cheaply.
