Report on the 2019 World Championship and WBF Executive Council meeting
Just a couple (alright, a few) more comments: The original story (about the Open Teams gold-medal winning team in Orlando, Florida in 2018 being disqualified because a player tested positive for a banned substance) broke into the mainstream media. What if this sequel also is picked up by the mainstream ...
Report on the 2019 World Championship and WBF Executive Council meeting
"Title revoke will become automatic if two players are found positive to the antidoping controls." Huh? One player on a team having violated the doping rules isn't enough? While I do not agree with the drug testing policies (brought about by the connection with the International Olympic Committee), I ...
Beth Palmer (1952-2019)
Here is the obituary from the Washington Post: PALMER Mary Elizabeth Palmer "Beth" Beth Palmer, 67, a World Champion Bridge Player and an Administrative Judge in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, died of breast cancer October 2, 2019 at her home in Chevy Chase, MD. She is survived by her ...
Beth Palmer (1952-2019)
I knew Beth best as a friend, and she was a wonderful friend. Of course, she was also an administrative law judge and the winner of many world and North American bridge championships. How many women would have time for two full-time careers, to be a wonderful mother and wife ...
Melanie Manfield's bidding problem: AK97652 T --- K9753
I agree that it was sensible for my partner (North) to drive to 7. The fault was completely mine.
A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
I don't see why the Strat B team would feel that way, especially when they would be guaranteed a sizable MP award for being a semifinalist in the Bracket 1 KO. My experience is, that even if a team is unhappy about meeting a particular other team that they ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
The format of the RRKO in which I played in Reston was just slightly different from what you describe, Art. Bracket 3 had 9 teams. My team played six, 8-board matches. I know that some teams were in three-way matches at some point. We were not among them. Obviously, there ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Okay. Well, if anyone knows of any such event within the ACBL at the Regional level (starting with an Open Swiss including everyone before brackets are created), perhaps they will comment about it.
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Yes -- it looks as if the Wilkes-Barre Regional will offer Bracketed Knockouts as described by Ray Yuenger, using the same format as the recent Reston, Virginia Regional. However, I heard last night that there may have been a recent District 4 Regional that did have a Knockout that started with ...
How to top players feel about bracket-1 KO's being small vs. populated with those playing up?
We have the group of experts with many MPs, the group of players with or without many MPs who would prefer not to play many boards against experts, and we have the group without enough MPs to be placed in the top bracket who come to a tournament wanting to ...
