Sad State of Affairs
Yes, Linda, it is!
Sad State of Affairs
How does that impact the GNT? From my prospective it cuts down on those "available" to play. Please understand that I have no problem with bridge havin professional players. Indeed, I think the game is best served with professional players. However the proliferation of flight b pros diminishes the pool ...
Sad State of Affairs
As a "regular player" I could not disagree more. The GNT is an exciting event that encourages participation in NABC. I note, however your concern that: "...this is a result of the proliferation of tournaments." I might suggest an alternative reason for the decline: the proliferation of Flight B pros ...
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: xxx Kxx AKTx KJx
If my p could open 4 in first seat, missing the AK vulnerable, I think we can either make 6 or double 5 and obtain a + score. If p can't make 6, maybe we need to discuss 1st seat vulnerable pre-emptive openings so that ...
Sad State of Affairs
Not to down play the lack of participation from Flight C players, I must admit that I find it more discouraging (and quite a bit more depressing) about the lack of teams in the other flights. My experience has been that Flight C players: don't know what they are ...
ACBL Scheduling.
But then again, there were not regionals held EVERY weekend for folks to attend. It mystifies me why anyone (who knows there are regionals EVERYWHERE -- EVERY weekend) would still go to the Nationals for the purpose of playing in the regional events.
Bernard Yomtov's bidding problem: A4 98 KT95 QJ963
X of 4 is for business....p's 4nt (instead of X) would be 3 suit takeout.
What accomplishment earned this letter
@Jeff, not everyone. I think the Lehman ratings are what doomed OKBridge. BBO refused to institute a ratings system, despite many calls for such. BBO's continual success should dispel the notion that a rating system will win out, if folks are given the choice. For those who insist on ...
What accomplishment earned this letter
@david, by no means. Unfortunately, by the time I learned about MPs and what they meant, and how they were accumulated, I was no loner eligible to participate in the Gold Rush events While myACBL said I had 40 MP (the points I accumulated on line when I paid my ...
What accomplishment earned this letter
Antidotally, when the "not your average gold rush" was advertised for our Senior Regional, the entries were less than expected. The gold rush limit was upped to 1250. Many indicated that they didn't want to play with the raised limit--and did not. There is a balance to be reached.
