Thought for Womens' USA1 Semifinals
Good idea
Crunch Time
The rules are vague. Paraphrasing Nick's excerpt of the EBL's rules: 2.7 of the GCoCs says the Credentials Committee of the EBL, may bar anyone for any reason and need not provide the reason. This clearly allows the latitude to bar players. Similar rules have been used ...
WOLFSON Wins Vanderbilt
Thanks all. Your congrats are much appreciated. Our victory gives hope to the masses. We won because we played better than expected, and our opponents played below their average. We needed both. What are the odds of winning 6 matches as a 17 seed (without knowing who you'll be ...
New Name for this Forum

A different Eligibility Question - ACBL Discipline
I mostly agree. History: 2000 CoCs 1.e. below = more than 90 days (not 90 days or more) and this wording carries thru on docs in my archives thru 2012. ***However -- this pertained to when a player was to play in the WBF event rather than when a player was ...
A different Eligibility Question - ACBL Discipline
"A player not in good standing can play in ACBL events other than the NAP and GNT Unit level or higher competitions." A confusing sentence. I think this means a player not in good standing cannot play in unit GNT, NAP, + Regionals + NABCs, but all other unit level competitions are ...
