David Yates's bidding problem: A7 JT2 3 AQJT953
Sorry; I was a 5 club bidder earlier....

Ed. Time does allow for full disclosure in pairs because systems that take a great deal of time are not allowed in these events. I realize that some people think whatever they wish to play should be allowed - and if that means we can then only play 10 boards in ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- AK98765 K9872 9
I think I would have bid 4 originally ... ergo, now I could bid 5 over the double and have a better sense of having shown my hand.

Dale, if you tell someone "we lead A from AK" - then why wouldn't they assume that you did all the time, unless you explain that you do NOT all the time? (I would assume that with AK doubleton, leading the opposite of what is "standard" for you would be ...
Does anyone know what time it is?
Georgie - I hear you! I got a literally last minute date many moons ago with a great player at the Madison regional. We missed 1st by 1/2 matchpoint to two guys named Soloway and Wold.... But I got over 25 masterpoints (back when 25 meant something!) and was THRILLED ...
King from Ace-King when suit is supported?

My guess, Ed, is because in a pair event, the event is more equitable if you play many pairs throughout a session. Let's say you had to play 8+ boards in a pair event - or - to make it slightly more rational (a stretch) - 6. You'd be playing approximately ...
Providing Information When Not Asked
Dale, I do exactly what you say when applicable; circle a bunch of items. People who look will often wonder what is going on - but - then we are able to explain in which situations which card is usually led. For instance, we have different rules about leading from AK holdings ...
Does anyone know what time it is?
Emily - interesting stats. Yet, when you have "city of the regional" - this really is not an accurate reflection of participation. I realize that you do mention this possibility. But, to clarify, Coralville has a population of about 20,000. Iowa City, the "primary city" of this area has a 70 ...

I do not agree at all. As Wayne states, it is an entirely different animal if you are playing 8+ boards against a pair, and have the opportunity to understand your opponents' system in advance, versus a pair game. With only 2 boards, time does not allow for full disclosure.
