Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
To contintinue my only half serious argument, unit qualification can also be earned at any unit in the district, and stretches over a couple months. I suppose it is possible that all the units might schedule their unit qualifier games overlapping a WBF event, but a quick glance at schedule ...
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
Yes, I have read the CoC and know that none of those events qualify you at the club level, so I was poking fun at the process. That said, it is not true that the Bermuda Bowl and other WBF events do not have standing with respect to NAP qualification ...
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
Does the CoC allow you to substitute winning the Bermuda Bowl for above average in a club qualifier?
Convention Chart Revisions
Tiebreak procedure: if 4 boards with a different system doesn't break the tie, there will be a par competition. If it is still tied, they play darte. After that they arm wrestle. :)
Problems with Lebensohl
Ed, I disagree, in way. I wouldn't say he "can" forget Lipensohl; unless his Lebehsohl forget was a fluke, I think it is virtually guaranteed that he will mix up Lipensohl frequently enough that adding it will be a big loss. Based on the limited data I have, I ...
Problems with Lebensohl

Convention Chart Revisions
I was born in British Columbia and I know firsthand that players there can't handle multi. Ok just kidding (though I was actually born in British Columbia). I was referring to flight B and C events. I don't think it is practical nor a good idea to restrict ...
Convention Chart Revisions
Personally I think 3 is probably the right number - one for real beginner beginners, typically less than 20 masterpoints and definitely less than 100, that comes with a simplified alert procedure - one for casual/club players; most club games and tournaments up to BC - one for experts and serious tournaments ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
First, while I don't know either of them I have only heard good things about them. Its awful for them and their families, and less importantly a loss to bridge if they aren't playing for a period of time. As far as fairness goes, in my opinion there ...

I tried minibridge a bit. Two problems: 1. Kids (other than really young ones) seem to be much less excited about anything called "mini"; they would much rather play bridge. If minibridge were called "tricks" or whateevr other name it might actually mame a material difference to middle/high school ...
