Common Game - security of hand record files and boards made
1) The person who deals the boards should seal the board box tamper-evident tape with the event name on it which normally has to be torn or cut in order to get the board out. You could print these seals on sticker paper. 2) Hand records should only be printed ...
Team League, Round Robin Format
If you like the 12-board matches, make it so that each team plays 8 12-board matches as in the first choice. You might consider reversing Weeks 3 and 4. Then Week 3 is "grudge" for Week 2 and Week 4 is "payback time" for Week 1. As suggested elsewhere, you ...
Discussing Status of a Swiss or KO Match With Pard During the Match
I general avoid and insist that opponents avoid discussion of hand values or shapes in any language once the hands are out (and the faces seen by either partner) on the next board. Anyone who took a typing class in the 1970s knows that you often type what you hear ...
How to deal with a problem at the local club
... As I have said in another context "Dragging someone behind a pickup truck or tying them to a fence in the snow until they die is 'Murder by Torture' and it is punishable by death. How do you make anything more illegal than that?" Tirades are tirades and they can ...
Anyone who is found to have cheated in an ACBL sanctioned event, at any level, should be banned from the ACBL and ANY ACBL-sanctioned event, permanently.
@Alan: You could certainly sue for your expected payout. If you can get the jury or court to believe that your probability of winning was more than the obvious 'one-in-64 crapshoot' and the extent to which the cheating altered those odds, perhaps you could prevail. If I were called as ...

@Joel: I don't condone Domestic Violence. That is a crime and rightly so (I have been a victim of it myself). I am unaware, however, of any players who have *conspired* with others to *COMMIT* DV. THAT would be a huge crime. I believe that NFL policy even makes ...
Anyone who is found to have cheated in an ACBL sanctioned event, at any level, should be banned from the ACBL and ANY ACBL-sanctioned event, permanently.
@Steve: I am not condoning even the first DUI. People do stupid things. My point is that a couple of days in jail, a license restriction for a couple of months, a non-trivial fine, and several years in the risk pool with people who are known to have driven stupidly ...

I have often stated that the current penalty in California for a "driving under the influence" offense in which no one was actually hurt and no property was damaged (basically, the cops caught you acting stupid on the road and discovered that you were under the influence) is about right ...
Trash Twos
I have been playing what you refer to as "Trash Twos" for quite a while now. I haven't used the response structure as outlined, but I might someday. Whether you play transfers or not, you need a way either to play in Opener's 4-card suit (which while not ...
A Tale of Two Bootstraps OR How to significantly improve ACBL masterpoint allocations in a way that most everyone will hate…
If I remember right the Golden State Warriors went 73-9 in one season. If I remember right, the Dallas Mavericks went 11-71 their first year in the NBA. I am fairly sure that the 2017 Warriors were a better team than the 1980 Mavericks. But the NBA allows a champion ...
