ACBL Ranking
Emerald Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The books have got to go.... Part II
I could be wrong, but my understanding has been that the players using Multi 2D must offer the opponents an approved defense - not necessarily the ACBL recommended defense. My opinion of the ACBL defense is very low. I would never use it and have constructed a couple of superior defenses ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Debbie, you make some GREAT points, especially about the lack of water, the non-iteration of the conditions to qualify for the next stage and the non-security regarding bathroom breaks. How can a "professional" organization run it's premier grassroots event this way?
The GNT's, a modest proposal
This discussion points out again the need for us to have two national bridge organizations: one for the professionals, world champions, Hall of Famers, etc, perhaps the USBF; and one for the rest of us, perhaps the ACBL. Perhaps not. The overwhelming success of the elite players against the rank-and-file ...
Why aren't you playing in the USBF Trials?
I'm certain that USBF officials and planners have done everything possible to reduce the yearly losses they sustain at each trial event. Here are two ideas: 1)hold the events expecting to sustain losses; 2)don't hold the events if the only way they can be run is ...
EBL Launches Hall of Fame
Don't all six (or more) of the Squadra d'Azzura deserve to be in the EBL Hall of Fame? Or do only living players get to be named to the Hall?
Why aren't you playing in the USBF Trials?
If the USBF really wanted to increase attendance at the trials, they would significantly lower the entry fees.
You Be The Client
Hahaha. Saying "Penalty doubles are soooo 1960's" is like disavowing the sexuality of Marilyn Monroe or the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Some things remain always correct and good. I remember when we had to alert negative doubles but not penalty doubles. It still seems right to me.
True North American Championships Coming
I'm asserting Fantoni and Nunes would have difficulty proving that there talents are unique and singularly in demand and their jobs could not be filled by Americans. But I'm sure that topic has been visited by their immigration officials.
True North American Championships Coming
Are we really going to examine the issue of foreign players taking jobs away from American pro players at NABCs? Or at Regionals? As one who was in the business of substantiating shortages of American workers with specific skills being available in the United States so that foreign applicants might ...
True North American Championships Coming
Hooray! Why should the ACBL host world championships 3 times per year?
