Information about Orlando World Bridge Series
Regarding drop-ins from Teams to Pairs, do you drop immediately (the next day) into the Pairs? or do you wait for the next stage of the Pairs to begin, which might mean sitting out for a day or two? For example, if you lose in the R32 of the Rosenblum ...
Open Atlanta Discussion Thread
I believe the reason there is one 2-way match, rather than all 4-ways, is to align the survivors into bracket slots such that potential re-matches between survivors are delayed as long as possible. See this link for gory details: http://cdn.acbl.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Appendix-C.pdf

In The Well: Chip Martel
Hi Chip, Congrats on all recent success, and thanks for jumping into The Well. Here's a trivia question to test your memory: You and I were on a Eastern States Regional Reisinger KO team in New York in 1974. In a late-round match (Semi's, I think) we lost ...
Finally...
David Burn: It's easy to slip up here. I wonder if you have overestimated the number of 13-card hands that include a straight-flush (and so underestimated the number of hands without one.) This would be because it is possible for one 13-card hand to have more than one SF ...
Open+ Convention Chart for USBC
