Willenken - Ginossar methods
If you play that 5S balanced invites go through stayman then you can play invite+ transfers after 2 If you give up on 1N-2; 2-2 being some sort of major two suiter then you can also play transfers after 1N-2-2.
Do bridge paradoxes exist?
There are hands where if everyone else is in 3NT, you want to play 6D, if they are in 6D you want to play 6NT, and if they are in 6NT you want to play 3NT.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I agree that in this auction it would take more time than usual to see who the declarer will be. For strains that are bid naturally early in the auction you usually just know, but strains that are bid incidentally in the middle don't register as clearly.
Appeals and Pollees questions
I'd be ashamed at chalking up +1430 for making 6NT
Running Two session events
You con't do carryover. The crossover function handles that. Make certain the boards in the second session are factored up to make up for the lower top.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
In the constructed hands for West, I believe that 1 showed 5 and the 3 bid showed 3. This is the way Bobby Levin plays with Steve Weinstein. Also the 3 seems strange in a standard framework.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
A while, about 3 months, back I heard all the cheaper rooms were sold out and got space elsewhere. Was I misinformed? If not why is there a problem now?
Can someone suggest how to run a team game with six pairs?
From Ian McKinnon's "Duplicate Bridge Schedules, History, and Mathematics" Team 1 is pairs 1,2 Team 2 is pairs 3,4 Team 3 is pairs 5,6 Round 1 3v5 set 1; 1v6 set 3, 2v4 set 6 Round 2 4v6 set 1; 1v5 set 4, 2v3 set 5 ...
Ethics issue or not?
What East should do at his second turn depends on what he thought the 2 bid meant. If natural then 4 seems right, but is 2 was thought to show diamonds and a major, or spades and another then pass would be reasonable.
