about me

Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Is this a way to run an organization?
Guys, there is a significant difference between playing in the top bracket ab initio and winning your way into the top bracket in the first day qualifying Swiss. If you play in the top bracket from the beginning, there is a significant chance that you will be eliminated on day ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
Arranged results are highly unethical.
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
Ed: It is like Earned Run Average. You have to adjust for the number of innings pitched and then figure out the earned runs based on a 9 inning game. Or, think of it this way. The average MP for the team based on a 4 player team is the ...
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
Randy: Ray said that you are incorrect. The increased award in the top bracket is based on the average master point holdings of the players in the top bracket. It has nothing to do with the number of players in the lower brackets.
Is this a way to run an organization?
Because many players do not want to play in the top brackets. And that is not a facetious answer to your question. What you are proposing is a different sort of event entirely. It is in one way similar to the pair events held in the not-too-distant past (The Triple ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Ray, you know very well how the rankings are done in a two-session Round Robin with no teams being eliminated. And the Conditions of Contest are quite clear. For the two-session Round Robin, IMPs are converted to VPs for each qualifying match. The teams are ranked by VPs at the ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Melanie: In the case of your bracket at the Reston tournament, you played a 6-match 9-team Swiss movement. With an odd number of teams, 3 of the teams were playing a 2-round round-robin while the other 6 teams played heads-up matches. Presumably, after 6 matches, the top 4 teams advanced ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Barry is correct. District 4 runs a number of bracketed KOs in which the first day is a Swiss or round-robin (depending on the number of teams) and the top 4 from the first day qualify for the KO semifinals in the bracket. The event is NOT an open Swiss ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
There is a difference between "playing up" in a bracketed event and playing in an event in which you have not met the qualifying criteria. In a bracketed event, all of the participants are eligible to play in the event. The issue of placing the participants into brackets is a ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
It does seem common that when a Soloway-style KO is run at a Regional, the brackets are made up of 8 teams each and the Swiss qualifying is a one-day round-robin of 7 matches with the top 4 teams from the round-robin qualifying for the KO on day 2. If ...
