Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
"Looks like you're double-counting. Each Swiss team = 4 players = 1 table. Similarly with pairs." Yes but they played two sessions. So for example the Women's Swiss featured 8 teams playing all day. 16 total tables toward the count. The fast pairs had 3 sections of 13 tables so ...

8248 through Saturday. Today looks like approx: Women's Swiss - 8x2 = 16 Fast pairs - 39x2=78 National Swiss - 54x2 =108 Oxymoron "bracketed Swiss" - 8x2x4 = 64 Open pairs - 30x2 =60 Regular A Swiss -unknown Side pairs - 5+8 =13 299er events - 5+5+4+ one more session unknown = ~20 So looks ...

Must be the lowest Spinderbilt total in quite some time...I assume they finish the event Saturday? Kathy Bye of the Vancouver area must have lots of fun with bracket sheets at tourneys - win by default because the other team thought, well, they had a bye.

Congratulations Sharon Osberg and teammates
I'm no marketing/press person but I know how this will turn out (a few bridge people will hear about it and that's it) and it's eating me up inside. You have to create the buzz and push it out ther rather than rely on word of ...
Congratulations Sharon Osberg and teammates
I've been thinking this exact same thing. At least some mention in newspapers, CNN, CNBC, etc.
A feat that will never be topped
"Never be topped" is usually an overbid. I suppose this is a tie. http://web2.acbl.org/tournaments/results/2012/11/1211100.htm Saturday pairs, 26 boards, the great Doug Fisher at the wheel for 14 of them; the not so great Danny Miles in the driver's seat for ...
NABC Housing Problems: Kansas City & Toronto
Many alternatives, rather than relying on the ACBL to be your travel agent, were discussed last post concerning this topic: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/toronto-nabc-reservations-now-open-sold-out/
ACBL Chief Executive Tenders Resignation
Editing is crucial if you want to succeed mainstream - a poker final table can take 15 hours. Have to condense a bridge match into a manageable, exciting show. The hole-card cam was the crucial "a-ha!" moment for poker; though if you watch the ESPN broadcast of the '97 WSOP won ...
CEO Search Committee -- Should the ACBL hire a professional Executive Search firm?
"Two highly qualified ACBL members from the business world" - I like "Five board members" - this does not excite me Out of curiosity, what is the average age of board members? Are we dealing with mainly all retirees? Does the organization not want younger blood, or at least someone to sell ...
