Leveling the playing field for newer players?
@Jim, many of the players ARE working away from the table, but in a lot of cases, they don't know what/where to focus. It is really a case of the blind leading the blind. I have seen certified teachers that really had no clue about the game. So ...

Leveling the playing field for newer players?
Gary, again, I will repeat -- these aren't novices I am speaking about. These are, for the most part, intermediate+ players (some even life masters -- but that's another story) who really don't understand how or why they might interfere with a Precision 1 or 1 auction ...
Leveling the playing field for newer players?
