Michael…I remember reading about Al Roth playing with a partner when the declarer had a two way finesse missing the Q….on the J to Dummy his partner huddled then played small. the Declarer played small and it won…Al's partner asked him why he didnt take the trick with the Q, and Al being Al said “i though you had it”

what I have hated is when I play the TD, his wife makes a cue bid over a 1 opening and ask the PLayer TD what it is and he says he has not idea then at two level bids his 3 card major.

but I would bid just as you did.

Kit and M Rosenberg
this is a national event, why cant the ACBL have on hand a select group of players who can serve on the polling committee that are compensated for their efforts of being on standby if we can reward the BOD for their vacation time in Hawaii…..a special group of select players just for the National Events.

my two cents…I think that it is terrible that the appeal couldn't have been taken care of before the final session. it did a disservice to both pairs not letting them know for sure where they stood going into the final session…by doing this they got into effect of deciding the event by their decision. so they should have completed this before the final session.

EW took a flyer on 7NT and hesitation or Joes comments led to a diamond lead. seems like EW and NS were all at fault. If the committee had decided that EW were entitled to 1MP that itself would have been enough to change the final results even if done before the final session.

I think I would let NS -2220 and EW -200 be the results
