I win the incredibly tight declare-only with 52.34%, by 2.34%. That challenge featured some really awful bidding by our side. I beat procrastinator by 5. Both reissued, oirg and JEB_SW out in the declare-only.
AA wins the regular challenge with +14.00, by 2.33. I beat AA by 42. Both reissued.
BTW, I forgot to report this bizarre bidding explanation from my match against procrastinator.
(No I wasn’t considering bidding 2S. I was thinking about 2H, but the explanation was equally bizarre. The auction was currently at 1NT, but either 2H or 2S by me in the passout seat would be a balancing jump overcall.
FWIW, I did bid 2H and lost 10 imps, deservedly. Not a disciplined or good call.
Lose to NN by 15. Reissued

I win the regular challenge with +23.75, by 15.50. I beat AA by 10, thanks to +11 on a ridiculous slam bid by CHO, which required 3 hooks all to work. They did. Both reissued.
Two matches against NN because BBO didn’t record the first challenge promptly so I tried again. First one I lost by 12 because my LHO played AQxx opposite xx by leading A then Q. With Kx onside, the only way to go down. A then small would even work as the Q would still set up. it was in a slam, so cost me 14 imps. Other match a 3-3 tie. Reissued (only one match)
NN wins the declare-only (IMPs) with +13.50, narrowly, by only +0.25. I lose to procrastinator by 19. Both those were completed yesterday and are being reissued now, NN and JEB_SW out in the declare-only.
procrastinator wins the regular challenge with +12.00, by 9.50. I finish only 14 boards against AA, so don’t the how those went. Not my problem this time for not finishing. I lost my wallet on the way home on the train from Washington DC today, and had to do a lot of scrambling replacing lost credit cards, etc.
The regular challenge and individual challenge with AA will be reissued tomorrow, so I don’t have 4 challenges expiring 3 days from now.
