ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Thanks. I just ordered from "jeremy," who seems to be cheaper than BB.
New ACBL Convention Charts - general club impact
Thanks for the information. I wish it had been available from an official source.
New ACBL Convention Charts - general club impact
Polish Club, in particular the 1 opening, will not be legal under Basic+ so far as I can tell. The article in the Bulletin claimed it would be legal, but I've received no response to my query about which provision allows it. I don't see any. It ...
New ACBL Convention Charts - general club impact
In general, the Open chart will allow a wider variety of competitive methods than the GCC does. Over natural openings, a known suit will still be required in most cases, but the bid to show it need not be in that suit.

Why does Harvard hate bridge?
The MIT club keeps a low profile and isn't exactly a high priority with the MIT administration. It does retain enough status to get a free room, though.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Avon: could you please check the reason Sheinwold was barred from captaining an American team? My memory is that it was because he didn't tell the then-ACBL president Lew Mathe about the accusations against Zuchelli and Facchini (sp?) at the 1975 BB. (That proved to be a good decision ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I have no trouble deciding which is more upsetting.
