The GNT's, a modest proposal
You are probably right. Several top teams didn't even finished in the top 8 last year so the random-draw matches were tough for teams finished 5 through 8. We finished 6th or 7th and drew the Northern CA team (I think they finished 9th). Maybe we should just use ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
I played in the national finals the last two years. The top 4 qualifiers get to pick from the bottom 8 qualifiers and the remaining 4 matches are random draw. As I recall, none of the top teams finished in the top 4 last year so that made the random-draw ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
It is actually not a bad idea. We can have two categories of MPs: one will never decay and one will decay over time. The MPs that decay over time will be used for seeding purpose. The seeding points earned in VSR decay over time so I don't see ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
In the Masters golf tournament, the past winners are automatically invited back. And you are suggesting we exclude past GNT/NAP winners because you think it will generate more interest? Name another sport/game that implements this rule. I actually consider the GNT/NAP true national championships because only Northern ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Why don't we just bring back the handicapped KO's for those who really want to win an open event? You can then boast you beat Meckwell after being spotted 40 Imps. LOL.
The GNT's, a modest proposal
The current format of the GNT definitely gives amateurs the best chance of winning an open event: the KO's are not seeded as the top 4 qualifiers in the round robin get to pick their opponents from the bottom 8 qualifiers and the remaining 4 matches are random draw ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Your logic is flawed in my opinion. Let's just take the Spingold for example: there are usually 80-90-some teams in the event depending on the attractiveness of the host city. Out of these teams, I would say about half are pro teams and half are amateurs. Do you think ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Everyone plays bridge for their own reason; some just want to have fun and socialize, some want to win (it doesn't matter at which level), and some want to play and hopefully win at the highest level. For the last catogeory of players, removing open flight or discouraging top ...
Why aren't you playing in the USBF Trials?
I don't think it is possible to define what an amateur is in bridge. It's very easy in golf and tennis because you have to join the professionals' association to become a pro. In bridge, you can't be sure of a player's status due to the ...
Why aren't you playing in the USBF Trials?
It seems like a conspiracy theory to me that the sponsors would ask USBF to charge an entry fee in order to keep amateur teams from entering. I guess they threatened to boycott the trial if USBF did not oblige their request. LOL. Jan, how much more would it cost ...
