This is an example of judicial overreach.

If the size of the Senate were any reference, one would have thought we had at least 100 million members :)

I guess we should be thankful that there have been mercifully no House of Representatives?

oh, in addition to 25 BOD, we have another 125 BOG? Jeez. I thought they were the same…

If I read it right, the plan is to increase governance personnel (or whatever your call it) from current 25 to 59 (25 * 2 + 9), while the membership is certainly to decline?

And rebrand this idiocy by calling them “Senate”?

Thanks. Next time someone insists bridge players are smart, I will redirect them to the article.

It is very hard for North to pass at the 2nd seat, because IMHO, East would have NEVER bid 4 over a pass.

He would just bid 3N with any 13 cards, making it impossible for South to get in with any moderate strength hands. Then 3N passed to North again, now what? Let's have another measurement on tempo??

North's pass over 3 worked out only because this hand south happened to have enough to act on his own, otherwise the likely outcome is NS losing a vulnerable game.

It seems North had to take some action over 3, if not double, then what? after 3-dbl-4-? Slam is anyone's guess.

The assignment of a weighted score between 6 and 6 is ludicrous. I would have had some respect had they split between a game and a slam.

Between 6 and 6, are you kidding me? for what? prove their approach is scientific?

I am not sure how to reach the slam had the ACBL approved gadgets been properly offered and applied. this “polling” business without transparency is a complete joke.

Not only you read it, presumably, but also bothered to write a reply.

Michael, thanks for the link. LMAO when I saw the polling result. I understand the sentiment, but It doesn’t have to be so blatant. Lost all respect in a second.

Indeed experience can go a long way in bridge. the fact it has a bidding phase and incomplete information, more or less puts a limit on the effectiveness of “thinking hard”.

Comparing to chess, bridge is just a “game”. The decision tree of chess is far deeper and wider, and every nuance matters. No such thing as luck, any little thing you overlooked WILL cost you dearly. It is very hard for older people to still have and maintain the mental intensity required to win.
