Yes, Peg, you're the only one. All of the results from the Collegiate are on ACBL Live. http://live.acbl.org/events/CNABC192

Rendezvous is about a 15 minute walk. Often busy with a wait for a table, so if you're going after the 1:00 session leave right away.

The hands for the special games are generated by ACBL and are provided to the Common Game as a courtesy, since many CG clubs are used to receiving hand records from them. Please stop suggesting otherwise.

The Common Game has agreed to refrain from processing and posting results on their site until after 11 PM.

I have a Bacon number of 2. I am also listed as a co-author of one academic paper, but I've never worked out my Erdos number, if any.

Any match that might be on the online Vugraph needs its own boards. So, yes, the semifinals will also use different boards in each match.

Confused by this comment. Intent has nothing to do with it. Law 45C1 says “A defender's card held so that it is possible for his partner to see its face must be played to the current trick.”

Ed, those are just the folks that have pre-registered through BridgeWinners. Entries don't close until the night before the event starts.

Ed, your first point of contact should be the Director in Charge of the tournament. If you still feel there's an issue, you can reach out to the Field Supervisor for the tournament. A slightly out-of-date list of their names and email addresses can be found on the ACBL website. Click Tournaments, then Field Operations information.

Scott, if you enter Lastname comma Firstname (as it says in the search box) you should be able to refine your searches.

Actually, no. It's just an exemption for players in the GNT who are not life masters.

Thanks for the shout-out, Peg. I got to see Kaya on today's show and was very impressed.

Law 50E:
E. Information from a Penalty Card
1. Knowledge of the requirements for playing a penalty card is authorized information for all players.
2. Other information derived from the sight of a penalty card is unauthorized for the partner of the player who has the penalty card (but authorized for declarer).
3. If the Director judges that the exposed card conveyed such information as to damage the nonoffending side he shall award an adjusted score.

So opening leader knows that partner must play the A at his first legal opportunity. He is not allowed to know that partner holds the A, or that his hand was such that he wanted to lead that card.

I would rule making 11 tricks per Law 50E3.
