One More Stupid ACBL Policy
This rule creates a fascinating incentive for the ACBL. Getting ONE additional team beyond 64 creates an extra day of play and an extra day of revenue. This would mean at a minimum $6500 (assuming all teams have only 4 and only one extra team beyond the 64) beyond what ...
What is a "world class player"?
I'm shocked that "Winning multiple national championships" is the leading vote-getter. How does someone who wins 3 national championships in Lithuania automatically make the "world class" cut? (With due apologies to Lithuania...I could use any non-elite bridge nation to make the same point).
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: Q732 A5 KQJ86 KJ
GF hands with 4/6m would Stayman and then bid the minor if no heart fit was found. So 8-card fit is guaranteed.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AQJ3 A AKT AK874
Because bidding 2, 3, and finally 3 to show your rough (but accurate) shape gets you perilously high in bidding space...and you still don't have your full strength off your chest. Some clearly believe it's worth misleading partner a bit on shape to get ...
Why I suck at matchpoints

2019 Cavendish Pairs in Monaco
Golf seems a poor comparison, as the golfer is playing against a constant (the course), yet bridge players are playing against a changing field as it gets whittled down in size. It's certainly possible for a reduction in carryover to be too much, but the concept of de-emphasizing results ...
You Be the Coach - Part II (And please ignore the earlier one; I don't want ranked answers!)
Yes, I would rather open 2N than 1N.
What happened to the Colorado Springs bridge web site?
How much of the data that is fundamental to the ratings comes from the ACBL? My understanding is that participating clubs send club results directly to the ratings operation. I guess ACBL must be involved in sharing tournament results (fundamental), and masterpoint totals (NOT fundamental to ratings), but seems like ...
What happened to the Colorado Springs bridge web site?
I have referred to these ratings regularly for years, and am confident that for intermediate/advanced/low-expert levels they are reasonably accurate measures of general bridge skill (when enough data is present). I have used them for all of the following: 1. A useful (if perhaps slow/lagging) measure of ...
