My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Amir, while there is undoubtedly some understandable frustration on your side, I actually had a fine customer service experience in virtually the same situation. About 20 months ago, the 19 Philadelphia Spring Nationals rolled into my backyard, and # of bridge friends of yore kindly insisted that I play with them ...
Meckwell would be proud
I'm assuming the "Meckwell would be proud" bit is facetious. After the ST opening lead, the SQJxx(x) is clearly marked with W -- so S must shift. The DA is cashed at T2 and when N encourages, the DJ continuation ensures down 1 at the minimum.
The case for zero-max IMPs - part 2
Ian Grant -- there isn't a bridge partnership in the world that has to make guesses when the auction is pushed high, and sometimes they guess wrong. Correction, there is apparently one bridge player -- you -- who isn't impacted by prempt... If you have something meaningful to add to a ...
The case for zero-max IMPs - part 2

Ray-- if I built the app, it *would* cost hundreds of thousands of dollars :) :) You don't want me building it for sure; the days when I actually built / wrote software are well in my rear-view winner... But, with the right authority and governance, I could certainly guide the building ...

Peg, thank you -- but there is no need for any apology. It wasn't insulting -- I certainly didn't take it as such -- and it won't dim my love for bridge in any way...

Richard, it isn't even in the neighborhood of hundreds of thousands of dollars, let alone a few thousand dollars -- and I do technology for a living... It's something, with the high-profile membership of the ACBL could be done for free (or near free) and very very well... but ...
