It's basically unusable on a smartphone or moderately sized tablet. Thank you Chris for bringing that up.

I agree. I have enjoyed mixed events because my regular partner is my husband so we're eligible for open or mixed events, but it seems obvious to me that open events should take precedence.

What is the point of a mixed event? There's nothing to prevent mixed pairs or teams from competing in open events. Do people think that a mixed pair or team is in some way inferior to an unmixed pair or team? I don't buy that as a valid premise. I vote for inclusivity.

I agree. We might even take it a step further and pre-print pads with a structure that helps identify when a sequence of bids provides specific information. For example: my partner and I play that 1S - 2N! shows either a 3-card limit raise with unspecified shortness or a 3-card balanced raise 16+. We won't know which it is until responder bids again (or passes). As each bid is alerted, the auction could be documented with a comment for each questioned call (or sequence). And what about having a set of prepared flash cards to provide to opponents to explain very specific agreements? You could even do them in multiple languages.
