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, as well as analyze hands for The Common Game - check that out at thecommongame.com. In my spare time I enjoy reading, biking, watching Vugraph, and (slowly) learning to cook.

ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
From a frequent seller at these events: longer lines don't necessarily mean more tables. Gold Rush lines move very slowly, because newer players tend to be less sure of which event they're playing and where to go. Both partners pay separately, and it often seems like there are ...
Congratulations, Jim Munday!
Too late to set up a quickie divorce and remarriage after the event?
Laws interpretation
BBO directors are (generally) not ACBL employees, just as your local club director is quite likely not an ACBL employee.
2017 USBC Discussion Thread
Yes, that's exactly right. These were "sequestered matches" - that is, no comparison with teammates toward the end of a round robin to reduce the incentive to dump.
The GNT's, a modest proposal
I think when he says "first day" and "second day", Rich is referring to Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday is only open to GNT/NAP winners (there are no Wednesday games in the fall) and Thursday is considered the "warm up day" for those who play. I would expect most players ...

Don - a high level TD (who lives about five miles from you) spends a lot of time going through each district's NAP/GNT CoCs.
Why aren't you playing in the USBF Trials?
If I wasn't a TD at the Trials, I'd be a player there. The competition and the conditions of play are stellar. It's the event that I'm most proud to be a part of every year.
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Strange, I would have expected the final session of a world championship event to have been played behind screens.
What would you do about illegal note taking?

What would you do about illegal note taking?
Debbie, Larry Lowell upthread posted the ACBL's position. I'll repeat it. Unless permitted by the Regulating Authority*, a player is not entitled during the auction and play periods to any aids to his memory, calculation or technique. Items that would fall in these categories include:  Taking notes or ...
