Restricted Choice Implications
Assuming they always falsecard I think the question is which is more likely: 1/2(prob(JTX) + prob (JT)) vs prob (J). The 1/2 is for restricted choice. The answer is the left hand side is more likely so finessing is wrong.
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: AT A9543 A98 AJ7
I hate to overcall 2 on such a bad suit, but my hand is strong enough that I don't think I'll get killed, we are NV, and I do not like my spade holding for NT. I do not want to double because hearts will often be ...
Expensive and random gold points
I think you are underestimating how much the ACBL stands to make. I think the maximum is 6600 tables, not entries. At 60 dollars a table, that comes out to just under 400K in revenue, if all the events fill up. If so, I imagine ACBL pockets at least 200K.
Brian Zhang's bidding problem: KJ3 QT6 J3 AKQJ9

New BBO "Support Your Club" Game
I think bbo said it will be 5 dollars for 18 boards
Let's Build Our Online NABC - Section 1, Live Pair Events

Columbus Hotel Cancellation and ACBL response
Will the ACBL have to pay the hotel a large fee if they do not meet their room commitment because of cancellations? If so, this policy makes sense to me.
Matchgame: 1!S-1N, 3!H-4!D?
Cyrus asked me to ask about this auction: 1H 1S 3D 3S, what is 4C? Is there a "standard" agreement any more than there is for the polled auction?
Defensive Problem
I remember the hand :) Great problem!
