3N is too important a contract so as to sacrifice bidding it to a M raise. With your structure of negative free bids, I'd play direct 3N as a bad hand for slam (in case opener is strong) and X followed with 3N as a good hand for slam in that case. By the way, what is your range for 1M?

From my experience, bots don't q ‘just in case’ over a new suit after a limit+ q, so if you want to win a high percentage of extremely competitive 55% bbo tourneys, you have to pull the strings like the Hog with the Rabbit

There could be the only reason to allow retracting pass: testing South if he's a bridge player. If you really hate him and he accepts, you have a story for ages.

Seems like a reasonable approach against LOLS, LOGS and the mixtures of those

Interested to see a hand that didn't want to compete to the two level and wants to compete to the three level

Opposite a misfit, there is little offense in South hand and thus I don't see how invoking ODR may justify bidding. South pass was good, disciplined bridge

South becomes a strong candidate for the annual bridge ethics award

I hope BoD will have a great time in Hawaii discussing how to run the ACBL operations well from the financial standpoint. If we could only resurrect Ionesco to be a scribe at BoD meetings!

I agree that bidding more with Craig's hand would work well for this particular deal. Other than that I think that pressured 3M should be relatively wide ranging, that is, from ‘great’ minimum to a lower range of 3M jump without competition. 3 with Craig's hand is enough for me.

I agree with pressured 3 as a ‘great’ minimum hand but it seems that neither partner knew what to do next. I don't think that North's hand was worth more than a non-serious try and 3N as such would help to sort out the problem of the pressured raise at the three level. The resulting q-bid/bwood death spiral was not adequate to either North's or South's holdings

Why wouldn't you q-bid over a minimum response?

I'm positive there are multiple great players per given amazing hand

Life is easier if direct 3=4 and 3-card raise starts with 2N

Unfortunately, 3 needs to cover many hand types with desire to force. I'm split here between 3 and 2

I'd be as likely to XX as to escape in 7N

I'd be way more convinced about the blue team shenanigans should another journalist wrote a book investigating the US team boards under the presumed hypothesis of cheating. You can't go by single-sidedness and count on skeptical folks like me to get fully convinced.

I wonder if I would like to coach juniors with natural systemic 3 here unless perhaps they defend Acol
