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

\n

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.

\n

 

\n

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

Looking For a Brilliancy from Montecontini
Reminds me of the stories where pairs played 3N over 2N as 5 spades and 4 hearts and forgets led to 'forget it'.

Square 9hcp with 3 cover cards and[b]3[/b] diamonds? How many diamonds do you expect your partner to hold when your LHO preempts in the suit? How much wastage? Do you think your side needs 26hcp to make game given the knowledge that only 3 or 4 diamonds ...
