Rating Study from ACBL Tournaments
Does your rating system take into account quality of field? A pair that plays in the Platinum Pairs and averages 54% for all sessions likely played better than a pair that scores 60% in a club game where the field is more random. I practice a lot on BBO and ...
ACBL selling points in many ways REACH the ultimate selling of the Gold
The entire master point system has little correlation with ability. When I first started playing in the clubs in the 1970s, if you won you received .06 fractional per table. There were 24 teams in the one flight GNT district in the 1980s. I came in second in district one ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
The method of determining which bracket you play is based on total MPs. It does not take into account success at high level tournaments. I have not accumulated many MPs because I am unable to attend most tournaments. I try to attend two nationals a year and play one or ...
Childcare at Las Vegas
The ACBL is supposed to be a service organization with the goal to provide for the needs of bridge players to participate and enjoy the experience at tournaments. While a large proportion of the membership doesn't require childcare, there are many that do. People plan their vacations month in ...

when I enter a bridge event, I expect the rules to be clear and logical. I expect the standards used to be those that are most consistent with similar tournaments. Here is a list of things that make no sense to me. 1. Why would 7 teams convert to 3 ...

Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
The cost of attending a National is out of reach for many. some are unable to attend for other personal limitations. Others do not want to play in an event where they have negative expectation of finishing "in the money" Platinum points won can also be misleading. The difference in ...
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
The masterpoint system has evolved into a marketing gimic for the ACBL. When I started playing in the mid 1970's if you won at the club level you received 6 fractionals per table. Now in a club game you can pick up 2.5 masterpoints in many club games ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
the purpose of a national championship is to select a winner based on best competition available. Excluding the top players dilutes the event. You also would have a difficult standard determining who you consider the top players. Do you determine by MPs, Platinum points won, results from national events, and ...
