about me

I was a traveling pro for what felt like decades but was really only a few years. Since 2011, I've been a full-time Tournament Director for the ACBL, traveling the American and Canadian West doing my best to help people have a fabulous time at tournaments. I still play and teach when I have the time. In my spare time I enjoy reading, biking, watching Vugraph, and (slowly) learning to cook.

Master Points for Foreign Players
Wow, that attendance SUX.
World Junior Final - Board 73
I think you missed the part where it was the Swedes in the vugraph room that were celebrating, not those at the table.
Reflected UI
If you can see your LHO and RHO, would you really not be able to tell when your partner takes an action and RHO's turn begins?
Age - JUST a Number!
One of my local clubs (Corvallis OR) held a "Swiss Decade Challenge" last month, where teams were comprised of players whose ages started with the same number. The first place team (out of 13) started with a 9.
Nickell vs. Lall - Last Board
The KO matches were 120 boards. Due to their deep bye, this was Nickell's 360th board. Lall played the opening round robin and all four KO matches, so this was their 582nd board of the event. The Lall team's skill and stamina to play such high quality bridge ...
USBC FANTASY BRACKET
We've posted first segment scores, locking all fantasy brackets. Segment-by-segment scores will not be posted here on BW - you can find those at the USBF site: http://usbf.org/docs/vugraphs/USBC2018/Bracket.php?stage=Roundof16
In The Well: Chip Martel
Hi Chip, I'll always remember my first time meeting you. It was relatively soon after your winning of a big event (2003 GNT, maybe?), but rather than talk about that you were (or at least you acted) more interested in hearing about my experience as a junior and a ...
Knockouts
The only time we have three-way matches is if the number of teams is a power of two plus one or two - otherwise the event comes down to a power of two via byes, two-ways, and four-ways. See http://cdn.acbl.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Appendix-C.pdf
1NT range announcement (ACBL)
"Someone" has been saying this as long as I've played bridge.
3-way KO match
The ACBL bases this on wins only, but the USBF has decided to base qualification on victory points, on the theory that the team that lost two matches by one imp is "better" than the team that won one match by one imp and lost the other by a hundred.
