about me

Live in Washington, D.C. area; degree in math, retired from U.S Government.

Played a lot in the sixties/seventies; took 35 years off; came back to play in clubs or occasional regional about 2011. 

According to Newsweek I'm a typical ACBL member:  somebody's grandmother with an aol email address. 

Interested in the discussions about cheating detection and investigation/adjudication processes.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Peg, Yu Maybe "we always pause at trick 1" could be squeezed into the "general approach" section of CC?
Suggestions for our new CEO -- starting a list
Other cost tradeoff questions about convention/score cards: How many partnerships maintain convention cards on-line, print them at home and have no need to pick up a CC at the game site? How can you increase that number? How could you encourage people to use both sides of a two-sided ...

I think you're right -- they got 14 from somewhere -- either your "VP" differential in the head-to-head match or the difference in VP totals between your team and the other at the end of qualifying. Good luck with your appeal!
Bridge Lawyers

By CoC, they should have converted the qualifying matches to Victory Points to rank the teams after qualifying. What scale did they use? If they did that, how many Victory Points did Team P have. How many did Team C have. Was the difference 14 by any chance?
