three-ways that overlap 2 brackets
Sorry, that's too much. The better of your average or their opponents average is already pretty sweet. Presumably they are withdrawing because they have had abnormally low results. That suggest you would likely not do as well despite your superiority. Teams that have scored badly because they are bad ...
How would you interpret this bid?
Yes. It helps to play kickback, as this gains you a step, but that is not required.

Why? Your comment above deals with withdrawing team being bad... reciprocal score deals with that. If the withdrawing team was giving everyone else 15 vps, then they are presumed to continue to do so. It's a round robin, so there is no notion of playing weaker teams as you ...
Ethics issue or not?
Unlike the other thread, I agree with David :-)

But Phil, we can teach this to our club players and have all sorts of fun with them.
three-ways that overlap 2 brackets
In a round robin with a forfeit, award the team the higher of a) It's own average VPS b) The reciprocal of the forfeiting team's VPs (20 - n) for matches played c) Average Plus (12 VPs on a 20 scale) The WBL round robin encodes this into it ...

forfeiting team gets zero of course.
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: K65 JT753 64 K73
David, rethink this. The double happened in the past. Pollees must consider this hand, not doubler's hand.
Tom Allan's bidding problem: --- Q93 AJT8765 952
I might not preempt if my Q93 were in spades. As it is, If we do have the heart fit that might otherwise slow me down, then the opps probably have a Spade fit.
switching minors in leaping Michaels over 2M
2 3 = Hearts and a minor, forcing. (Typically 5,5 with good HCP, likely willing for 3N or just too strong for 4m.) 2 4m = Hearts and a minor, non-forcing (typically 6 card minor, weaker hand)
