Becoming a Bridge Player
Max, have fun in the Vanderbilt (although you'll do better to go to Kansas City rather than St. Louis unless you are waiting another 4 years :-). It is one of the best learning experiences there is. Coincidentally, my first experience in the event came playing against Barry when he ...
NABC O/W's
Corey, Peg is suggesting this for multi day national events. So there might be 75 women's pairs entered which might normally pay to the top 20 places but I was bringing up the hypothetical that fewer than that number qualified for the final day. The number of places is ...
NABC O/W's
The biggest problem as I see it is logistics on qualifying for subsequent days of the tournament. Let's say strat W was supposed to pay 20 places but only 17 eligible pairs qualified for day 2. Do you add more pairs to the 2nd day and mess up the ...
Dummy is Mum?
To me, if there is an exposed card on the table and a director wanders by but wasn't called, the director is going to ask everyone at the table why he wasn't called, not just the three who aren't dummy. That's why I think the dummy ...
Dummy is Mum?
Isn't the fact that the diamond card is left faced up on the table proof that attention has been called to the irregularity?
Score keeping should be disallowed in the semi finals/finals of all major national matchpoint type events
Eric, the problem with running scores in the KO's are the issues with different speeds of play at both tables. What happens if one table gets 5 boards ahead of the other. Do they wait for the other to catch but then risk falling behind on the next board ...

Why not just enter a bunch of random contracts and scores on your scorecard to throw off your opponents who might peek. For example, if you're in 3D making 4 and the opponents have 8 hearts between them but can't make anything, write down 4H/S+1.

I think you've hit on a solution with playing the second day of the Reisinger as barometer. 20 tables is few enough that they should be able to space them far apart to avoid the overhearing issue.
What did the ACBL Appeals & Charges (A&C) Committee do in Orlando? Cone of Silence descends upon the ACBL
Ed, that's exactly my point. I was just emphasizing that this in reference to the teammates and not the actual cheaters (who should be banned). What I'm trying to do is to try and apply a formula to estimate the likely seeding points that the teammates of cheaters ...
What did the ACBL Appeals & Charges (A&C) Committee do in Orlando? Cone of Silence descends upon the ACBL
I can explain partially pregnant. It's an attempt to add a third option to a binary situation. Fortunately, what we are looking at here is not binary. We have the ability to remove none of the seeding points, all of the seeding points, or ANY fraction in between. So ...
