Soloway Fantasy Brackets
Not going to complain too much about a glitch in an overall great website where the price is right. But if you all want to make the bracket contest an attraction, you need to enable it as soon as possible, and remind folks ahead of time that the deadline is ...
BOD Restructure Vote
Like many other Americans, you seem to be mixing up the appropriate role of a Supreme Court. It should be a fair arbiter and interpreter of laws made by others, not some type of super-legislature that has less (or even zero) accountability to electors.
BOD Restructure Vote
"The problem with your proposal to accept what is offered, JoAnn, is that if it passes, [bold] governance changes for the board will not advance for another 50 years or so. [\bold]" Can you please explain why you believe this to be true? If not this proposal, what is your ...
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AKQJT4 T9 K5 J42

Plea to BBO software developers
I agree the upgrades you mention would be nice...but first I'd like to see some more basic improvements: 1. Identify in the Vugraph lobby (i.e. where one selects which match to watch) whether the match is Bermuda Bowl, Venice Cup, etc. without requiring viewers to have foreknowledge ...
Thinking Twice About Two-Way
Path dependence applies. If you're starting from scratch, I agree basic 2-way is simpler. But if you're building on a NMF base and you're dealing with intermediates, I suspect that changes the conclusion.
Bermuda Bowl inter alia (perfectly open thread, as far I'm concerned)
Re: the Butler scores from the round robin... http://db.worldbridge.org/Repository/tourn/wuhan.19/microSite/ButlerBB.htm ...I recall reading skepticism about the value or accuracy of Butler scores as a measure of the "best" pairs. But the only specific concerns I can remember are sample size and ...
