Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
Don't think so. I seem to remember playing in a 3 way for either the Vanderbilt or Spingold. Same rules as general 3 way KO for ACBL regionals. It's a win-loss formula, not VPs on who goes through. The OP is addressing what might be a very specific ...
On Bridge Journalism
I am also a member of the IBPA. It's been suggested I write something for them... In my case I would use statistics. It is possible to numerically measure the "quality" of Bridge at a tournament. I can then compare tournaments. We expect similar tournaments, e.g. Bermuda Bowl ...
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
With these rules you can have a situation where a team does not win a match but advances. Team 1 beats Team 2 (by a large margin), Team 2 beats Team 3 by a small margin, Team 1 beats Team 3 (by a small margin). Team 1 will have the ...
Tardiness: Should we add a more stringent penalty to the General Conditions of Contest?
Suggest giving the DIC the opportunity to rescind if a medical or other emergency has arisen. "I ran out of gas" is not an excuse, "my car got rear-ended" is.

Video footage of kids playing bridge?
See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1-YWOfoyuQ Filmed 12 years ago. Some of these kids are still playing!
Episode 14: Meck
Statistically Jeff & Eric have been one of the top American pairs for many years. They are one of the few pairs that has become better post 2015 (even when looking at data with all known cheaters removed).
Rate mY Idiocy
@Steve. It was Board 12 in the Friday morning game. Mike was playing with Anton Habash. The power of the Internet means you can look up the LHO and RHO. Can't be bothered to format but here are the North, West, East, South hands. K 9 4 2 A ...
Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
Richard: Try talking to the local organizer of a Sectional or Regional to better understand the logistics of bridge tournaments. The hotel wants money for their convention space, for rooms, for the kitchens. How this is allocated is part of negotiating the hotel contract. Every contract negotiation is different. For ...
Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
Look at the situation from ACBL's perspective. They are required to show a certain number of rooms booked "room nights" to guarantee cheap convention space. If they allow people to book direct, there is no tracking with the hotel(s) that the rooms are booked with for Bridge. When ...
