Big Deal in Play at Fall NABC
Many of the old guard of players believed that they could sense how the hands were running. Slam hands coming consecutively, especially. We were always told we were wrong, but I remember a long conversation with Ethan Stein back in my NY days and as a pattern recognition specialist I ...

Proposal: New Soloway KO with Qualifying Swiss at Fall NABCs: Increase Attendance!
It has long been my opinion that the cost of attending a NABC when you are not participating in the NABC events is a primary consideation. Location certainly plays a huge part. When the hotel room cost is over 140 a night and the entry fees for Regional and Side ...
Proposal: New Soloway KO with Qualifying Swiss at Fall NABCs: Increase Attendance!
I believe you are missing the point. Our committee responds to requests given to us, reviews procedures and evaluates the competitions. We all know what happens when someone takes a project they were given and blows it all out of proportion. We make every effort to work out a rational ...
