Use of resources
I wonder if anyone has monitored/analyzed movement (if any) of ACBL players to online bridge. Is this a thing? Are the numbers significant? As the bridge population ages, it becomes more feasible for members to keep "active" by playing online. Geographic issues play a role here, too. I don ...
