Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Putting together a Strong Club (Precision) - any insights into why and how these issues matter?
Just a couple comments to add to the above, about methods I play in some partnerships but don't really care for. 2. I play 1 - 2NT as 11(+)-13 or 16+ bal and 1 - 3NT as 14-15 bal. These are both not very good. 3/4 ...
ACBL Sectionals after November 2018 - convention charts used

Foundations of hand patterns
In the problems with the urn, the original problem was really something like "You have an urn containing four balls of which an odd number are red. (Aside from this constraint, all assignments of colors to balls are equally likely.) You draw one ball, which you observe to be white ...
Poor pair game movements
Same for 24 boards and 8 tables, and a relay in a 3-board round almost never requires waiting for a board to play.
Identifying the player in a lead a problem
I think you're always South in lead problems. When there is some text included with the lead problem (such as explanations of bids), there's also a caption explaining that the hand has been rotated to make you South and the text may need to be interpreted with this ...
