When East plays third hand high the nine, doesn't West know east has nothing in the suit?

We are a not for profit and our base price isn't $12. I can see cost fatigue building up above that price. I won't pay $14 for a tournament but if my partner pays for me, I go.

Our people like STACs. I don't know why. You are paying real money to flip bits in a computer two thousand miles away. We only charge a dollar extra so the club subsidizes them a little bit. What the districts do for us is of course a separate issue.

Ditto charity month. You can put out a dollar, half to some worthy local cause and half to a ACBL charity.

Maybe if you are running a game in a retirement home and everyone is counting their last dollar.

What does his three spade bid mean if he alerted? He heard your mixed raise and chose not to bid game. Pass is a logical alternative.

If west leads a boston 7, east knows his attitude (no queen) but not his count. When he leads third best, east knows his count but not his attitude.

When I can count 14 tricks off the top, I bid at the eight level. Then I claim at trick one.

You can't actually do 6 sets an hour. You can do two sets an hour. If the machine is kept clean and has a lot of tender loving care, you can do three sets an hour. The reason sets from an outside vender is $10 a set is they have to pay somebody $20 an hour to make 2 sets an hour.

If you are making sets in real time, you are no longer interested in the average time to make a set. You care about the worse case time to make a set. Which is what do you do if a machine breaks down.

Before there was computers, people who played boardgames by mail involving dice rolling would agree to a future publish event for random numbers like the attendance at the yankee game mod 6. Today there are dice servers that will email you dice rolls. So I just have to have a dice server email me and a trusted authority a random seed. Oh I need a delay in the loop so people can't run off the hands themself because they know the seed.

As a director, declarer will play the clubs in whatever manner doesn't work. For that matter he loses the fifth round of whatevers because I don't presume he can count.

You haven't proven anything. As the evil tournament director who is out to get you personally, I have nothing better to do than run as many sets as it takes until I get a set of boards that is bad for your style/system. I of course know week in advance where you be sitting and what your opponents will bid.

So ping you going to have a caddy run boards among 3-4 table? Well, we heard from people who have to run a swiss and i guess I'm in that group since I run an eight is enough swiss. Do we want to give the smofs that run regionals a well thought out proposal of how this is going to be accomplished. Or a wish list of what we want followed by accusations of lack of imagination when they can't do it.

A pairs event needs 2-3 boards per table per session. 3 only for small sections. A team event requires 24 boards per pair of tables per session. If you aren't going to reshuffle after every round.

Asking for predealt hands quickly becomes an equipment issue. Figure out how many boards you need.
