Crowdfunding for New Bridge Organization
"Will the outcome of this project expose how serious they are about their complaints?" No
Crowdfunding for New Bridge Organization
There are lots of people I think are well-meaning and diligent, but I think spearheading a campaign to start a new (better) bridge organization is going to take a little more than that. If you and others disagree by all means contribute to the campaign. I certainly would be interested ...
Crowdfunding for New Bridge Organization
I think if you want people to give you money (not to mention for this organization to actually ever exist) you need to do a better job outlining how exactly you plan on actually accomplishing some of your goals. A few random questions that come to mind. How will your ...
Do Robots Drink Beer?
I have noticed a number of times where the robot plays the diamond seven on the last trick (although I do not have data on how often it could, but does not) even when it does not score. It would be a nice little easter egg if that was encoded ...

Crowd-Sourcing the ACBL's February 2020 It's Your Call contest
Isn't this sort of against the spirit of the competition?
Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
"There should also be reasonably priced parking at the location." Strongly disagree as this would eliminate almost any city I would actually want to attend an NABC in. "So if hotels near the playing location don't have enough rooms, regardless of city" Fortunately, this is not a problem for ...
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?
If there has been an irregularity I do not see why I should be worried what my director call reveals to partner. I get people do not always call the director during club games (I don't), but I would frequently (almost always) call the director here in a tournament ...
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?
I'm not a laws experts (in terms of the exact proper procedure), but it seems like this situation is pretty conducive to polling? If everyone is doubling 3S with a more clear explanation (and they are not with given information) then there was damage? I want to protect the ...
