well if opener had 4spades, wouldn't he respond to checkback with 3SP instead of 3H? And if responder bids 3NT he then could go back to 4H with 4324 hand? or pass to 3nt with 4333.

It's a sort of Lebensohl. Regardless of which minor partner opens , after 1m-1M, 2NT bid, 3cl is always weak hand and relay to 3D and responder places the contract; either pass to 3d or correct to 3M. Therefore 3D is always checkback. If the bidding goes 1x,1H,2nt-3H would be forcing with 6+ cards, but after 1x,1H,2nt-3cl, 3d, 3H would be weak hand such as xxx, QJxxxx, Qx, xx and asking to play 3H something like that.

Paul; agreed. After the new president, i think North America is certainly more than United States; it's United States and Other Countries

1. win A,
2. A of clubs
3. Q of clubs
4. Spade to Q
5. cash K of clubs throw H from hand - if clubs 33, pitch d and spade, play H to hand and cash all winners to squeeze lefty for H&S and righty for H&D
6.7 if clubs doesn't split depends on who has 4 clubs and assuming west lead from JTxx find a way to end play or simply move on

I think there is something not right here.

OK I read this pages of explanation but no idea what the scoring error was. And what would have happened if it was corrected. And what was the talk about sexism second day? was there an issue and nobody did report it or just bringing up to trying to seek some support?

Did you win due to scoring error? I just dont think this explanation made anything clearer.

I would bid 4cl splinter after 1d-2d. Responder eventually should bid 7 D with 2 working Kings and knowing partner has no loser in clubs

Well since we cant use the same bid for everything, lets call anything but 2NT response semi-forcing :). If doubler hand is based on shape only like 0445/1444 with minimum opening values in fav vulnerability 3x can be passed, but anything better doubler can qbid.

Regardless of what 3D was, 4NT here is a RKC in Diamonds, clearly not to play. Bidder possibly had 3 small spades, but after the Spade q bid! now off to slam. xxx, qx, kqxxxx, kjx possibly down 2

What's the issue here? You have to double and partner's 3D is forcing ( assuming you play Lebensohl). 3SP asks to bid with spade stopper, and partners bid 4NT for RKC in Diamond.

If the slow players self-pre-alert their-selves , would that be any help?

Another slow play story; I think about 15-16 years back, we were playing a pair game in nationals. In the last board against two gentlemen. In the last 3 cards, my partner -as declarer - took about 4-5 minutes and still was thinking while one of the opponents angrily said “claim it already”! My partner replied “well why don't you concede then?”, opponent threw his cards and left the table. His partner apologized and asked if we knew who he was. We said no. He said he was Paul Soloway. We shrug our shoulders and look at each other blankly - we didn't know him that time :)

I am proposing a new game in the next NABC; Slow Open Pairs game! Starts at 1PM and scheduled to be end around 11:30 PM. About 12+ hours for 28 boards should be a good challenge, kibitzers can bring sleeping bags and comfy chairs

1. Agreement is an agreement. Why would you rather prefer your partner to lose confidence in you then just bidding 1cl?
2. What were the indications that made you downgrade your singletons honors? I didn't see your LHO bid 1sp or 1d? What if partner has touching honors?
3. And why not upgrade or why not just do no adjustment? You had three options but you selected pass (33%) over the other 2 opening options (1cl or 1h = 66%)
4. take a small club and make it 5th H. Would you downgrade your singleton honors
