We're still waiting for the last match of the event #4.

Let's take the time to poll for event #5.

I'm looking for an additional volunteer to do the "organizer" things (for this event it's just mostly just update score in the excel). Ovncylmz will be too busy to do that for the next event.
Let me know and I'll give you the access to the dropbox.

According to the poll, next event is most likely IMP non-best hand with the same tournament structure. I'll let this poll stay a few days so people can have a nice thanksgiving break.

The registration of the next event will probably start this weekend. I'll start a separate thread.

Head-to-head MP is Board-a-Match, which can also be pretty random, especially with robot players. They don't know they're playing BAM, their logic is tuned to ordinary MP. The field protection that it affords means that they can play the odds.

BAM strategy is exactly the same as MP, unless you have specific reasons to assume a particular result at the other table (say, you know you are behind on the board since the other table opened a weak NT and likely got a helpful lead).
Obviously we have a recall bias in favour of the assholes. -helene_t
