For your consideration: Are Bridge and Baseball facing similar problems appealing to youth?
The average age of self-described American MLB fans is rising. So what? Baseball's demise among youth in America is greatly overblown. When you throw in softball (primarily a girls' sport in that country, I'm told) youth participation is on the up: https://www.foxsports.com/mlb/story/study-shows-youth-baseball-softball-participation-on-the-rise-051817 ...
USBC Semifinal Matchups
Why do winning underdogs "take over" the seeding in bridge? Does not happen i tennis, NCAA basketball, etc. The bridge way loses a piece of info in the process.
Seeking PhD Candidate for 3 year Bridge Project
Educate me on a related matter: Back when I was in graduate school (PhDs weren't still just a cheap German gimmick, but it has been awhile), students had to propose the research topic and find a prof who wanted to supervise them. While certain profs always had budgets for ...
We play with tablets on Sunday
Hi, Jim... An interesting question!. I would argue that we should like the software to eliminate revokes, plays out of turn (etc) just as we'd like to eliminate --cards falling on the floor from a shaky hand --a table getting the wrong boards (or some other mess-up of the ...

Zlatan tied to Sweden Open
When Zlatan opens 1 it is 16 HCP EXACTLY. When he opens 1 it is 13 HCP EXACTLY. Zlatan is much more precise than ordinary men.
Selection Committees
"I have no friends in Formula 1, I have never driven in a competitive race; yet I would have Lewis Hamilton on my team and so would you." But you see, I wouldn't. I'd have Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso. They'd be driving the Mercedes works cars ...
Say No To Cheats
Hi Frank, You write in conclusion: "What exactly is achieved by having many people signing a document like this?" I'm not sure. Maybe nothing. But I don't think it can hurt. If it's a step forward, even the tiniest of steps, it might help.
Say No To Cheats
Hi Richard, You write in part "However, the players want someone else - in this case the tournament organizers - to bear the costs of the inevitable lawsuits." Which 'inevitable lawsuits' are these? In a major horse race, eligible entries are published weeks (months) out. If my horse matches up poorly over ...
