Of course, if you have BridgePads/BridgeMates, then there's no excuse for NS not checking the incoming pair numbers, since the device should say who's expected.

Some day automated scoring devices will be as common as bidding boxes are, but as you say, that's currently just a dream.

There may be no excuse, but not one in three ever does.

Fortunately, better clubs now have BM2s, so they show names not pair numbers. Even if North does not deliberately check them, it might occur to him that these two grumpy old men are not really called Stephanie and Helene.

Some very fine clubs are making do with BM1s. I even know of a small club that still uses travellers (anyone remember those?)!

Well, we do 7 tables, 28 boards and a 4-board sitout. That's so much better :-). Note, by "we", I don't mean "me" - I find a better movement. But sometimes I play...

I'd run a 24-board hesitation mitchell if we did 24 boards, and I'd make the sitout pair 1NS, so that there was no board sharing. I have an 8-table hesitation mitchell guide card at my club (so I can do 9 rounds, 27 boards), which I put out on table 8 (as everybody else is (usually) fine).

There are programs out there - if you hunt hard, sometimes - that will print guide cards for your movement on demand. If you run the 7-table, 24-board Hesitation Mitchell frequently, I'd print out at least the hesitation table (and possibly the tables opposite the bye-stand).

I use the 7 table Hesitation Mitchell frequently, and have never needed guide cards. If I have a half table I put the missing pair on table 7, so that it's mostly NS pairs who sit out. I check that the right pairs move/stay at T7 for round 2, and thereafter it looks after itself.

Heh - I would expect the difference between us is that when I run a Hesitation Mitchell, the people playing it have only played this movement the other two times I did something weird like that...
