about me

Peg Kaplan is the proverbial "jack of all trades; master of none". When not competing at the bridge table, this Grand Life Master promotes the game she loves, with writing, photography and managing several bridge blogs.  In "real life," Peg sells real estate in Minnesota, and loves her pet birdies.

Each team is shown receiving 10 VPs for the bye, Dave. At least - that's what it shows now.
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Dave, some people claim that people don't want to play in the Open flight because of all the wealthy sponsors playing with pros. But, if you look at the makeup of the teams, there really are not that many teams that fit that description. I make the distinction because ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Yes, Mike; by "professional" teams, my intent was a team where at least one person was paying at least one other person on the team to compete. If 4+ people who sometimes play professionally have a team, but no one is paying them, I would not count that as a ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
David, to get a winner, you actually need competitors. I have studied the list of those who represent their district in the Open flight. The majority are not professional teams. As someone remarked at a Board of Governors meeting where the issue of why all the flights were having entries ...

Ed, too many regionals may well not be the #1 problem; unfortunately, there are more than a few. But, I am pretty certain that if we could make a significant cut in competing regionals, week after week, those remaining would improve both in table count and FUN significantly.

Jonathan, you did not mention the other elephant in the room. There are waaaaaaaay too many tournaments! I don't know where to look for the stats as to how many regionals there were annually 20 or 30 years ago. Yet I know that they USED to report on regionals ...
