Yes, diamond ace, spade ruff, diamond duck works just as well. Sorry, that's what the Great Shuffler gave me :-)
1NT - 3M
You can play 3D=1444/13(54) and then you have room to ask whether responder has 3 or 4, just like over 3H. This depends on what you used 3D for previously; in my case it's 55ms which fits just fine in 3S (opener bypasses 3N with interest ...
Followups after shape resolution
(Also replying to comments below here) Certainly it is a bit awkward that responder is showing his shape while his strength is unknown, but 1) it's quite similar to standard after, say, transfer-then-3C; 2) the knowledge of the fit at a low level indeed allows to bypass 3N safely ...
3!S INV or GF?

Why not?
For comparison, here in France the equivalent of the NAP district qualifier is played with screens...
Bot Programming Perhaps Last Time
It would seem to be a simple improvement (e.g. for hand #5) if, when the bot fails to come up with a single hand where his play matters, it generates some hands *ignoring* the constraints (let's not even try to quantify "small" vs "large" bidding deviations) and see ...
T2 defense
Declarer had 9xxxx x AKQxx Kx and p KQxx x xx AQJxxx, so the correct return was a club.
NABC Entry Fees Increase as of Summer, 2019
Re: "It has long been my opinion that card fees have always been too low. I see clubs struggling to make ends meet where a $2 increase would have made all the difference." I am no longer living in the United States (after having played in the ACBL for 8 ...
