What is Going On with Regional Bracket 1 Knockouts?
I also played in this event. In order to achieve a representative and competitive first bracket, there were 7 teams. The first day we played a round robin - 8 boards against all of the other 6 teams. The matches were scored at imps, converted to victory points on the 20 ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
It seems to me that the resolution of this controversy, by the District, was probably no worse, nor less fair, than any of the other possible alternatives. However, in issuing its decision, the District could, and should, have included an apology for the shortcomings in the administration of the event ...
Jones and Hall Win IMP Pairs

Leo LaSota in Limbo
Not particularly relevant in this discussion, but I believe that two ACBL ranks - Life Master and Grand life Master - should require the full complement of "live" points. It's probably OK for all the other ranks to allow consideration of online points, but those two should be special and pure ...
USBC Semifinals
In the 4th segment of the semi finals, Rodwell was down one in a vul game, losing 6 instead of winning 10. He would have made the contract on a finesse in a suit which had been artificially bid by Meckstroth and doubled by Stansby, and there was an issue ...
