Just under 24 hours to go in the challenge. I don't know who has completed it, but not all.

It says that I've finished. Can't see any results yet.

Did you include me? I don't recall seeing any challenges in a few days.

Yes, I did, sort of. And I predict you will not win this one.

I invited Klaymen. And Klaymen is a valid Bridgebase id (a person from Turkey named Ada, who considers herself a beginner), or I bet it would have alerted me to the problem before the challenge was issued.

Since the challenge will expire about 8AM eastern time tomorrow, I'm not going to try to contact Bridgebase to see if they can cancel Klaymen. (Well, what the heck, I will e-mail them, but I don't think they'll do anything before the normal expiration).

Congratulations to me for the win, at +5.34 imps. As expected, Klaymen was a no-show. No response from bridgebase support as to whether I as host could have eliminated Klaymen or otherwise forced the challenge to end.

New challenge issue, dropping Klaymen in favor of someone I know from Iowa.

I played atrocious on the next set. I'm under the weather today and played on autopilot and screwed up.

Gee, I thought I played pretty well, though too late I noticed I made a call slightly outside the "what the bid means" description, and paid for it (maybe; not sure the bot's bid was justified anyway).

But provisional results, with almost everyone done, have me at -10 imps.

Final results: thekinz wins. Congratulations. I was 3rd at -5.25 imps.

Then another hand where admittedly I didn't follow the system description, but the system description was nuts.

RHO Me (and several others) LHO CHO
1D 1H Dbl 1NT
P 2H P 4H !
all pass

OK, system notes said I was showing 6+ hearts and 13+ HCP. But who thinks that 2H on that sequence shows that? You have to pass with 6 hearts and a weaker hand? Bananas.

The winning action was to overcall 2 hearts on the first round. The system notes say that's 4-9 HCP, and you have a very good 10.
