The problem is that people have the wrong view of Masterpoints. They prove nothing. There are players out in the world with over 10K that can't follow suit. They just play a lot.

Many players want to win them and think because they have won them that makes them better players and it does not.

I remember when there were no brackets and it was a free for all. The argument is we don't want to play against the pro players there are two paths to this game.

1-Play against the worst players you can, win a bunch of master points and learn little about the game

2-Play against the best players out there, get your brains beat up and learn the game.

Karen,
Good Morning.
Joan and I are coming to Vegas and we are playing in the Mixed Teams on the 24-25 and going home on the 26.
We are coming in on Thursday to go to the Hall of Fame Dinner.
The 19-23 I do not have any games. I would love to play a day or two. I understand if you get a pro date.
Let me know if you would like to play. I will have free plays as I am speaking and doing magic for the Juniors on Friday.
Hope all is well. My cell is 214 5078749

Regards,
Norman Beck

This should not be a question. The person had a clear raise to 3nt. No more.

Hi, A question for you. Why does the ACBL charge people in the NABC events 30.00 a session and any other event 20.00
It would appear to me that you charge your best customers more money and then let the Board come and play for free and get free air fare during the meeting. To save money would it not make sense to do them via a Video Telephone situation.

I think that it is very unfair to charge me more money for the same service that a player that is not in the NABC gets.

dan, I must say that I am on the clubs side. I don't know you or know what you look like or how you acted when you walked in. The term Stranger Danger comes to mind. Had you walked up to the directors table first and introduced yourself. You would not have had the cold reception you got. In todays world you don't get many strangers who just walk into a bridge club and start scoping the place out. Think about how you came across to the people in the club.

Sidney moved to Dallas and at a dinner party someone asked him how did he like living in Dallas. He said “it doesn't matter where your at it is who your with that counts”. He had just gotten married and when he said it his new wife smiled big time. He was a class act.

Why?Steve I think this is a really bad Idea. You are in a way saying I don't want to play against the real good players. You did not word it that way but that is your intent.

Folks. I am standing behind Mike. I think that you have all jumped the gun and Think you know when You don't. How many times has the ACBL made a wrong ruling in a committee. More than I can count. You all think that because a committee makes a ruling that it is true. Before you say he is guilty show me some evidence. You are way to quick to judge based on no information other than a article in a newspaper. I am sorry but I wont do that and for any of you that do I have no respect for. You can say that I am wrong and that is fine.

I really wish that people would stop saying what they think. In a matter of this nature if you don't know what happened you should not render a thought other than Until I have all the information I will keep my thoughts to myself. I have read many many posts from people who have no idea what the facts , what the facts are and yet are ready to be judge jury and executioner. The entire group on this forum would be well placed to stop making comments, and judgements on a matter that they know nothing about.

Move on yes you should have won. At this point no one cares. Perhaps they should but the don't. I think winning the next one should be what you should be thinking about
