Master Points for Foreign Players
This project seems problematic. ACBL masterpoints are basically dependent on two different things - ability and frequency of play (along with ability of partners to a lesser extent). Are you trying to convert for both and if so, in what ratio.
Defense to Multi at the Orlando WBF Championships
Chris, be that as it may. It is not just Multi you are defending against, it is that and the other bids that are different due to Multi (like 2H, 2S).
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
David, (others) in my mind ethics are not a function of external factors like camaraderie, friendship, and respect, but are internalized and independent of what others are doing.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
As more and more of this ch*ating stuff comes out, like Boye, Avon, Justin (and many others) bring out, the inevitability of electronic environment will be understood (if most of the bridge players don't die first).
Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
Jan, I will be wiring the entry fees from my bank on Monday. If you are the one involved with that type of payment, please make sure that info listing who is pre-paid will be available at the registration desk.
What happened?
If you clicked on the thread and you receive the daily Bridge Winners activity digest, it MAY be in there. Probably depends on timing of original posting, your view, and when you receive the digest.
Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
Gene, why is it that after you make a fairly comprehensive statement on an issue that you then must end with an "ad hominem" attack. Is that a "New York" thing?
Italian Bidding
Sounds like the OP is saying the "Law of Total Tricks" works. I don't think che*ating enters into it.
Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
Another factor, Philadelphia had an ACBL Regional concurrent with the WBF event, which I know for a fact, many people played in between events of the World tournament. If nothing else, it brought many more local or regional people to the vicinity of the WBF venue.
Italian Bidding
I can't read peoples minds. I was not offended.
