Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
false carding against fast Freddie and watching him mentally assessing whether or not I was savvy enough to think of false carding.
Bridge Accomplishments
None that I can think of. Oh! Tie for 1st at the Puerto Rico Regional with the team of Reinhold, Sontag, Weischel and others I forget by beating them on the last round by 3 imps in a win-loss event. 1973

David, beautifully said. The joy of playing bridge belongs to all of us, experts and less than expert alike.
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Greg, we are kind of on the same page. As a worker at and an observer of the Trials (20-25 teams)I thought it to be a wonderful tournament -- the best. I would like to see the Bridge CHAMPIONSHIPS be like the Trials but bigger and allowing players from all ...
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Gary, I have never felt that the 1% should have a lions share of ACBL attention. I loved being a fly on the wall while putting together breakfast or lunch for the players gathered for the USBCs that were held for several years in Memphis. People watching is my favorite ...
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Jan, I am smiling because my years and job at ACBL made me very aware of the things of which you speak. Aware of the various needs but not aware of the various cost and I know nothing about the revenue other than some simple math.
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Jan, you must be thinking NABC++, NABC+, Regionally Rated, Single Session and IN. I am thinking your NABC++ then Regionally-Rated. A Radical Change. No idea if 3 days shorter would be a significant savings for ACBL. Pretty sure fewer events would translate to less use of ballroom space for whatever ...

Peg, you have made it clear that you are in favor of appeals committees as I have made it clear I am in favor of the TDs decision being final. Present law is on your side of the thinking. It is not legally wrong to exercise a right given by ...

Peg, If there were no right to appeal there would only be the bashing or praising of the TD decision and no questions raised regarding an appeals system,that is also "human" and flawed, being available for possible personal benefit. A note to the National Recorder re possible use of ...
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
I do not consider any of the point limited, gender limited or age limited events "National" events.
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
My initial base of thinking was to create an NABC schedule that held Championship events and Regionally-rated events when a player fell out of the main event. Also a thought that maybe 7 days might be significantly cheaper for the host (ACBL). I like a concept that the NABCs are ...

That is the argument for. I concede it has some validity. But not enough in my (again not so humble) opinion. In this particular case several have pointed out that the auction told Glubok that they may be missing the Diamond Ace. Perhaps Grue's remark (AI) helped. As Meatloaf ...
