Can't We All Get Along?
"A resolution was passed overwhelmingly by the Board of Governors that was overwhelmingly thought to be terrible by the BW community." Maybe nitpicking (who, me?), but I would have said "by the BW community who voiced an opinion". I would hazard a guess there are those in the BW community ...
Ive got fixed or I wasnt careful ?
"However, any cuebid which conveys a very unusual or unexpected meaning still requires an Alert." IMHO, this statement is subjective at best, far from "clear". For example, I would think any direct cue-bid other than Michaels as qualifying, but, no, that is not the case.
Power Ratings
FWIW, I noticed someone who afaik only plays club games. I would have expected a rating well under 50, maybe even under 40. Nope, over 55... Flaws no matter what, just pick your poison.
Should teams be permitted to "play up" into higher brackets in bracketed KOs?
It is one thing to get creative with a (possible) 5th match in an open KO, but quite another thing to suggest a 5th match in a bracketed KO which has 4 sessions as an inherent characteristic.
In The Well: Boye Brogeland
Lord of the Rings?
Its going to be very good or very bad.
Not much of a problem if reverse count, no? Doesn't hurt to specify though.
World Youth Team Championships Begin
At the least nobody's a loser :)
ACBL Lifetime Masterpoint Lists
No matter what rating system you want to use, there will be inequities.
Tom Allan's bidding problem: T7 AQ8632 KJ53 2
"We won't have a game on 'power'" KAQ is 10 tricks, isn't that on "power"?
John Cunningham's bidding problem: T54 AT9 T8 KJ743
I could see bidding 1 if I wanted to make sure my partner would never ask me to play with him again.
