Zonal Governance Proposals
I think that with today's technology there should be occasional referendum votes by the ACBL members at large, just like amendments put to the public in the mid-term elections. This should not cost a lot, some software to be written for this. Doesn't it make sense that some ...
Zonal Governance Proposals
No matter what the board size is, if the previously mentioned "idiot" portion is a majority, then the competent minority will usually get nowhere and get very frustrated. You need as a high a percentage of competent people as possible for the board to go smoothly with intelligent decisions. From ...

The net effect of all these silly rulings is that the ACBL is forcing us to play THEIR system and if our bid does not agree with their rules (system) we get penalized. This application of rules stifles creativity in bidding and evolution of possible future bidding systems. Not only ...
Captain's Diary, Day 8: R16 vs. Spain, Segments 5-6
What I would like to know is why the authorities reduced the original 30 point penalty to 10? I know that as the numbers stand that USA would still have lost, but things psychologically could have been quite different if the original penalty stood. Also 10 imps, only a game ...
Board 15 - Round of 16, First Segment - USA vs Spain (director was called)
After clicking on the link, click on Board 15, Open Room (3NTE -2). Sorry, I don't know how to present the board in a more friendly fashion.
