While I dont disagree with the nature of a lot of the comments, what kind of heart stopper do we expect for the delayed 3N?

Failing to bid 4 is beyond me.

The golfing analogy is interesting.

There are many top courses with about five sets of tees. Notwithstanding the horribly sexist ‘ladies’ tees, you can generally play at least three of the tees, and there is usually a suggested required handicap needed. For instance:

White (middle): 20+
Blue (back): 10-19
Black (championship): 0-9

Skiing has similar levels of difficulty with black, blue and green slopes / diamonds, triangles, etc..

Why can't newer players opt for the front tees or the bunny slope or do they need to have a frustrating day on the links or injure themselves on the slopes to compete?

I know, Im trying to apply some consistency (where none is necessary). In the end a subjective list seems fine.

Does this mean winning the Silador or the weekend swisses because they overlap late stages of the Spinderbilt would not be eligible?

NABC events are on par with world championships and winning any event is a big accomplishment.

I think the current list is just fine.

Since theres only 3 tricks leftover after 8 trump and an ace…

Sorry, was numerically challenged when I wrote this. Im blaming the jalapeno popcorn fron Buc-ees on the way to Houston last night.

Partner took four club tricks of course and made 7.

Probably for the lifetime subscribers that do not want to pay the annual fees.

Fit NJ by a passed hand only. Otherwise natural and forcing.

Groan. Pretty bad AFD prank, however it's a joke within a joke, so not bad.

Hard to say how successful Memphis was because it rated to have pent-up demand following the dumpster fire called Honolulu. I also hope the BOD doesnt get too complacent following a NABC that wasnt a disaster and wont effect governance change.

None of this is meant to detract from the tournament staff and volunteers that did a GREAT job.

Count your points and/or losers. Remain flexible to what happens later.

By trying to prepare for everything you will miss things that are in front of your eyes.

Strongly recommend getting on the trolley down to Beale. Very few bridge players, so less crowded. Ate at the Pig on Beale and recommend the pulled pork plate but not the chicken
