about me

Lobby your ACBL Board rep to move the 10K event at the start of the Spring NABC to Sat-Sun rather than starting on Day1 of both the Platinum and the IMP Pairs. Bueller?  Bueller?  Hello?  Strive to schedule 10K events on day2 of 3 day NABC+ events. Having a 10K event final on day 1 of a new NABC+ event is WRONG




The ACBL doesn't need a one size fits all policy for team entry fees.  If you want 100% of the masterpoints then you pay your 100%.  A 6 person team willing to receive proportional overall awards, as we do in Swiss team events, can pay the 4 person team entry fee.  We already track the sitouts.  This is not rocket science.




Live tournament bridge will sputter if we don't engage new club players to enjoy play in a larger venue.  It's time for a new grass roots approach:  North American Swiss Pairs.  Qualify during the Grass Roots Fund month in May and earn the right to play at the fall NABC.  The grass roots events, NAP and GNT, should be designed to excite newer players, not just reward those who are already coming to the NABCs

Why are there round robins in the World Team Championships?
All play all in a RR format gives less experienced teams from smaller countries an opportunity to play for an extended time against a quality of competition they don't normally face. This is good for the future of the game. Maybe the schedule can be adjusted by a kind ...

Why are there round robins in the World Team Championships?
I'll come off ignore to claim: FOUL! before you offer up a question concerning a whiff of impropriety you ought to do at least a modicum of analysis. the first double digit swing was a 50% slam that might have been better but there was duplication. the grand slam ...

Excluding Exclusion
There is a lot to like about a response structure for exclusion that mirrors the ask over preemptive openings. Has there EVER been a common agreement re. the response structure to ERKC?
