Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AJT2 AJ532 Q9 KJ

I remember there was an old BBO (?) thread where Justin Lall tried to see if he could average over 70% over a large number of ACBL robot games and came up just a little short. Since this tournament is fewer boards, but will likely be a stronger field, I'll ...
What will be the winning score of the NABC Individual ?

ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
Reading all the strong objections to this tournament is pretty frustrating. In no particular order 1. If you think it is a stupid idea, then don't enter the tournament. If no one enters then it will go away soon enough 2. Do you really think the existence of a ...
