ACBL Ranking

Improving the Seeding Process
Michael - ELO ratings force players to quickly face up to their limitations. I suspect that the majority of players would prefer to compete in an environment in which the illusion of progress is provided by the accumulation of master points.
Improving the Seeding Process
You could initially have both but an ELO rating will soon expose the masterpoint for what it is: a measure that favors quantity over quality. Once shown to be of dubious value it will disappear. As will the ACBL.

Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Karen - the general prohibition against hearsay evidence reflects the value that the legal system places on cross-examination as a fact-finding tool. Assume you are the adjudicator who has to decide if A in fact attempted to persuade B to engage in collusive cheating. Gary is not a first-hand witness to ...
