Claim ruling poll
This is why I avoid claiming. I'm better at the play than making sure I list all the things that people think I should. It makes the game longer, but after a couple of incidents like this, I just stopped. Why risk losing on a claim what you'd ...
True North American Championships Coming
I note today's date when reading this announcement.
Punish un-convicted team members?

ACBL Board of Directors Stands Up for Basic Human Rights
