peralph wrote Hey @graeme @bajir...I'm a stats nerd and was wondering if anyone kept track of score distributions. With over 2000 players getting the same score, this must be one of the tightest ever, if not the tightest. Or has there been a hand that *everybody* passed?

Bajir wrote Ha I love this question! It must be hands where everyone passes that have the most consistency. But I'm pretty sure it's been a few years at least since we've had EVERYONE all pass. With so many folks playing now, we can always count on a handful doing something a bit... unconventional. :)

Bajir wrote Oof we've all been there. If you like, try turning on 2-click mode from your settings. Ads an extra click but we made it to protect against those dreaded mistaps. Hope that helps!
Bajir wrote Thank you @jckspa! We're lucky to have you in the club!

Bajir wrote Helpful comment @osmaston - thank you! @graeme just recorded an upcoming video on when once might not want to bid a weak 2 opening even if one can. Stay tuned!
Bajir wrote Good question @dexterMorrison - was wondering this too. Tricky call for N. If he bids 3H, there's a good chance we'll go to game which will go down. A good example of when it's not worth opening a weak 2? Try replaying as N to see what you can figure out.

Bajir wrote Good question @bellindap and thank you @janemart! Bellindap, I was wondering the same thing. Just wanted to make sure you knew you can tap on any bid in the auction panel to find out it's meaning. Hope that helps!

Bajir wrote I just tried replaying as East, thinking it would be easy to make 6NT. Really tricky! Couldn't figure it out my first go.
Bajir wrote Really fun. On a diamond lead, pretty sure the only way for EW to make slam (even winning all 13 tricks) is to successfully finesse a spade. Trying to think how they might guess where the ♠J is....

Bajir wrote Nice @collar! Me too - wow that felt lucky. Basically went through all but one of the trumps hoping the discards might give a clue about whether I had a better chance turning the the SJ or the DQ into a winner. At some point West discarded a spade so was able to get four spade winners, winning 11 tricks total.
