The responsibilities of bridge professionals
I'm guessing most sponsors subject to abuse would be less likely to rehire or offer a good recommendation of the professional to others. It's bad for business. They are therefore subject to potentially severe implicit financial penalties. There appears to be less need to single professionals out for ...
Suggestion for ACBL: pay extra for pre-dublicated boards in non-preduplicated board events
I like the nostalgia of shuffling. The rich history of bridge and whist going back through the centuries is part of its charm. But in determination of North American Champions, not best for poorly shuffled decks. And I do like hand records.
Double Dummy problem from BBO practice
Alas, I couldn't ask if Michael had the 8 so I had to settle for the small slam.

Very cool. And if you archive all of them on the web, who knows what a thorough review might turn up?

In Austin, we have pre-duped boards as part of the "Common Game" at the club, but not for the Swiss teams at the club and not for the Sectional and Regional Swiss.

Yeah, early rounds of Spingold, Vanderbilt and NA Swiss would be first priority, but once you have the option for any event, it could be offered for anywhere where someone was shuffling (or at least the same building).

Yes, just talking about the regional KOs at the NABCs.

Peg, if they had more Imp-pair events, I would be less sad about the decline of KOs and Swiss.

The European 10-board stanzas before the smoke breaks make the game much more collegial because everyone can talk about those 10 hands. $60 * 1000 tables is a big initial investment though.

Meyer, that's awesome. I'll probably be bridged out that week after the Europeans, but yours just became my favorite regional.
