A survey of time preferences for NABC events - comprehensive (kind of) poll
I think I remember you coining the term "Bridge standard time" suggesting the game time be the same GMT regardless of the time zone being played in. I think that makes sense. I like the idea that west coast players don't have to play at 7am and east coast ...
Improving the Seeding Process
Winning one match in an early KO round should never gain you seeding points. Seeding points should represent a sustained high level of performance over a length of time, not the good fortune of beating a single good team on an early day in the event. Perhaps holding that seed ...
Balicki-Zmudzinski May Play Freely in EBL!
"And, of all the people commenting here – both their accusers and defenders – Balicki and Zmudminski are the ONLY ones who actually KNOW the truth. Though one wouldn’t know that from reading the ‘definitive’ comments of others." M.R. Are you really saying that until F-S were convicted in a ...

Recognizing that the placement of bidding cards varies significantly from auction to auction and within said auctions for this pair is enough to show a pattern of behavior that is suspicious. Finding a consistent pattern is not necessary to demonstrate cheating. Players at this level are usually meticulous about spacing ...
Length of 2017 USBC Matches
I think matches should be of the same length regardless of when they take place. I prefer 120 throughout.
Feedback for Convention Chart
Good work. Where were you 4 months ago?
EBL Ruling on Disqualified Teams/Pairs
in the absence of a perfect solution perhaps a simple and reasonable solution is better than no solution? There should be a winner in each event. In the case where the options for 1st place are a 1 team that lost a day earlier and 1 a day later, it ...
Score keeping should be disallowed in the semi finals/finals of all major national matchpoint type events
scorecards that list the boards in the order that east west (or N/S) played them without any board numbers would make things safer without drastically changing things.
T-Tests: World Championship Butlers
That's cool! Where might one find the adjusted Butler info?
T-Tests: World Championship Butlers
No doubt you have valuable contributions to make. You have chosen a poor example of where to apply your effort. I would be interested in some smart persons method for taking butler scores and factoring them against the butler scores of the pairs that they played (like the lehman ratings ...
