Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
The formulas adopted by the WBF, ACBL and USBF boards are all different. At one time they each had a different continuous scale. The newest WBF scale is the more mathematically correct one. In The Great Reunification, Jim implemented the WBF scale in ACBLscore and ignored what the ACBL board ...
ACBL Club Department
Barbara wrote that someone from ACBL management stated, "another multimillion dollar boondoggle". This would seem to be another swipe at ACBLscore+. Once again..... ACBLscore+ was fine. ACBL did not own the Copyright so they were told by their outside lawyers to not use it. At some point, I'll write ...

This isn't "Just bridge"? USBC Appeal #2
I can only find three instances of this auction from my database of approx 260K hands. None involved this pair. This is from the 2009 Spingold: http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?n=sKQhK1083dA5cK10964&e=sAJ8532hJ96d8764c&s=s976hAQ5dK1032cAQ3&w=s104h742dQJ9cJ8752&d=E&nn=Larry%20Cohen&en=Carolyn%20Lynch&sn ...
Another Question for Mathematicians--well...Statisticians
Cracking the ACBL hand records required three consecutive deals. H1, H2, H3. Finding the seed from H1 to H2 was a brute force crack, however there were various flaws in the algorithm/implementation which made the search space a lot smaller. Given the seed for H1->H2, it was trivial ...
Las Vegas NABC accomodations & activities recommendations, no cars (unless renting is cheap) but we are young enough to walk.
Use Google Earth to "fly over" the hotel and see the area. There are some covered walk ways from Cosmopolitan to other (cheaper) hotels.

Collusive cheating at regionals sectional and clubs not that serious according to BOD!
Law 40.
Collusive cheating at regionals sectional and clubs not that serious according to BOD!
Collusive cheating is playing with a pro and having an agreement that the client will not bid no trump and not disclosing this agreement to your opponents. Wait to see what happens when the first non-European pair gets charged.
A method to use hand records for 7- and 8-table 2-session round robins
In ACBL land, Swiss/KO matches are always shuffle/deal. The only exception is the later rounds of the NABC+ Swiss events (if you are doing well) and the Spingold/Vanderbilt/Reisinger. This is one of the reasons that the cost to play is much cheaper in ACBL land than ...
