NAP in Summer, GNT in Fall
Here's an ACBL email from 3/16 (Monday): "Exploration of “replacement” Spring NABC events, including North American Pairs (NAP), is ongoing. We are working with BBO on developing online events and will release details as soon as possible." So on Monday, they were looking into holding the NAP online ...
ACBL Spring NABC is Canceled
As someone who lives in Tampa, you're not missing much. The best thing we have to offer is a hockey team that loves to choke in the playoffs.
Let's Build Our Online NABC - Section 1, Live Pair Events
The NAPs would be a reasonable starting point for BBO and the NABC. Because of the prequalification step leading to a smaller field and the fact that all players would be in North America, it shouldn't be too hard to organize an event like that. I mean, I don ...
NBA Suspends Season

Has Panic & Fear Overwhelmed Us? Far worse than COVID-19
That's extremely uncalled for. Whatever the ACBL does is reasonable, but to turn the tables on Jonathan is just rude.
USBF To Hold U31 Trials for 2020 WYBTC

Bridge on Twitch
Haha, thanks for the endorsement. That's not always a good thing sometimes but I do appreciate the sentiment.
Mitchell Open BAM Teammates?
Hi Michael, Thanks for reaching out. I actually already found a pair over a month ago (forgot to update this post, sorry), but if they (or you and Freerk) are open to a 6-man team, we might be able to set that up. Thanks!
Another Proposal for SF
Another fellow (soon to be former) Junior here who would go for the earlier start times if there was a choice. A day job has made me "old" pretty quickly :)
