Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ripped Off
I'm sure some members would still prefer cash, but I don't think that should be relevant to whether other forms should be used. Done correctly, adding app-based and credit card payments would save time and money and increase convenience to many, as well as reduce the risk that ...

Even the smallest of businesses today use app-based cardless services like Venmo, Applepay, etc. or cheap card based services like square. Costs are miniscule. That bridge tournaments cash based approach is another indication to how behind the times acbl is (as are many clubs).
Why should the ACBL search committee pay particular attention to the Bridge Winners Community

Accurate Recording of Play
I looked into doing this a few months ago as a hobby. I am convinced it is possible to implement a system based on image recognition quite cheaply. There is one company that does something similar for casinos blackjack tables. If I'll find them again I'll update. They ...
Who has the Q of !d ?
Assuming 2h by west would have been weak, I'd guess he would have bid 2h with a side singleton and was dissuaded because he is looking at qx in a pointed suit. So I'd go for the drop
Exposed score sheets
Those without electronic scoring devices get a pass from my idea :)
Exposed score sheets
Peg: I only meant to use smartphones after the game to look at the scores, not during. Agree about the input errors, but I think (1) there are better solutions and (2) the cost/benefit analysis isn't obvious as is.
Exposed score sheets
My 2 cents: Directors should stop providing score keeping cards and instead provide the information online (e.g. common game). Players can bring a notepad or use a blank sheet of paper to write notes. This score keeping is an old habit that provides little value to most people today ...
