Ruling in Montreal
I think that the explanation of all methods with multiple meanings should include a rough percent of each type of hand. On this hand for example there should be no claim of damage if the explanation was: Usually a forcing NT type of hand with less than invitational values but ...
Is this forcing?
2 was not forcing. 2 was not forcing. 2NT was not forcing. Why would you play 3 as forcing?

Ray, In the BAM movement you can only compare at the end. In the OP movement they compare after each round of two 6 board matches (there are 4 rounds in total)

Thank you Kevin! I didn’t think ACBLScore did... Also, contrary to what Daniel wrote, it looks like you must have 2 complete non identical sets of 36 boards for this movement, one for Rounds 1 & 2 and the other for Rounds 3 & 4. Great movement.

that's all good for team 1... can you provide us with the full movement to make sure there are no repeat matches for a full RR.
What's your plan for bidding this hand?
How do you play 1 - 2?
Our Implementation of Hand Records in Bracketed Round Robins
How do you synchronize the pairs beyond rounds 1 & 2 to complete the RR?
Would you bid again here?
I think 4 should strongly imply this type of hand because with 5-5 in the minors you would bid 4 and with single suit diamonds you would bid 4 and with a semi/balanced hand you would bid 4NT.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: AQJ72 954 KJ3 Q4
My plan is to treat this as an Hx in support of Hearts. I bid 2NT and hope to raise Hearts on the next round if I get a chance. With some partners I would raise to 3 directly.
Commonly accepted meaning of (1X)-P-(1N)-2X? (1X)-P-(1N)-2N?
I play that (1) 2 is Natural but after (1) Pass (1NT)... it doesn’t make sense because both opponents imply club length.
