An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
I'm with Jeff that stratifying is generally good. It's the best of both worlds. You can't escape exposure to good players but still have a chance to collect a small award. Since the top award in each strat is based on fewer tables, i.e. excludes table ...

An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
For 2019 vs 2018, three of the D25 regionals have almost exactly the same attendance: Cromwell, CT (1013 vs. 1018), Warwick, RI (1366 vs. 1368 tables), Mansfield, MA (854 vs. 853). Falmouth, MA is down 7% (427 vs. 461). Nashua, NH is down 9% (1082 vs. 1191). Sturbridge, MA (623 ...
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers

"Print Scn" is the combination Fn + F11 on Windows. On my Dell laptop the Function (Fn) key is bluish-purple and "Print Scrn" is written in the same color on the key below the F11. It might be Alt + F11 on some computers. But while sending a partial screenshot of a ...
ACBL Live über alles
For setting priorities, I think the two biggest ACBL Live pain points are (1) copy-and-paste is very bad, and (2) board results are not shown for all combined sections. Maritha Pottenger, a local San Diego expert and teacher, emphasized item #1 to me today after a club game. She sends ...
