Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Happy retirement to a dear friend....who never forgot his friends. Will miss you at BBO, but very best wishes to you and Sheri for a happy and fulfilling retirement. I still remember the generosity when you bought team jackets for your international team back in Unit 166 days...always ...
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
When bridge was really popular it was contract bridge played at home. From this pool of home players, and their children, came those who played duplicate contract bridge at clubs and tournaments. When the number of two parent homes began to decline, and home situations became less stable, the pool ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
Just a thought...but wouldn't it be easier, more effective, and infinitely cheaper to learn from the pros by watching them play on BBO? There'd be no embarrassment, and you could take screen shots of the hands and the bidding for further study. Maybe someone could compile a ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
Hi Peg....I'm sure the other team was happy with the result, but did they really beat your team? Or did your team beat itself? What did the other team learn from playing your team other than "don't self-destruct?".

They all honed their talents by practice, experimentation, and innovation. You cannot acquire this ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
Want to increase tournament attendance? Then set reasonable flight limits (making "A" 3000+ is absurd) and award MPs based on table count in each flight. If the 0-999 flight has the most tables, then it gets the most MPs for winning. MPs should be awarded for beating your peers, not ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
Michael probably doesn't get too many opportunities to play "Up".
Is this a way to run an organization?
It's no fun being cannon fodder for the experts, despite the claims of those who say how great it is to play "up" and learn from the experts. Here's a case where people were given the opportunity to play up for free, and, tellingly, no one volunteered. What ...
Zero tolerance at club games (club directors' comments are appreciated)
No player at the table should make any comments about whatever bidding or play has occurred. If you think something irregular has taken place, call the director and explain your concerns.The director will decide whether or not a ZT penalty is in order, and will act accordingly.
