Improving the Seeding Process
I am in hearty and vocal agreement with Tom Reynolds comment that the limited event needs to start a day or two after the big one. Starting the 0-10000 on Tuesday gives not only those knocked out of the Vanderbilt but also the Silver ribbon qualifiers a chance at this ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: K6 J65 A9764 AKQ
6S. The stronger my opponents are the more enthusiastic I am about bidding slam. I'm not going to beat Nickell by playing down the middle. Plus partner should NOT be opening on junk in front of me. I play him for AQxxxxxx at a minimum.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: A763 AK8 JT54 Q3
Double. Ready to get my head handed to me.
Improving the Seeding Process
How about a 2 day Swiss in the 'Spinderbilt' that boils down to the top 32 teams for the KO? The National finals of the GNT has a similar format (fewer teams to start so they boil down to 16). The 'cream' probably will rise to the top more often ...
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: K53 Q5 KQ72 J965
The better the opposition, the faster I pass.

Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
State Farm offers a 'Transportation Network Company (TNC)' rider in some states (NOT ALL states allow it at this time). When you become 'available for hire' bodily injury or property damage liability to others and damage to your car are no longer covered under your basic policy unless you purchase ...
Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
In the Silver Ribbon and Mixed pairs there were no web movements either. 28 boards were in play which was not bad, but still....
Should I be lookiing to report this behavior? (Part 1)
This needs to be reported as the player involved may be getting away with it at other times. Even one deliberate revoke is enough in my book to warrant a serious meeting with a C & E panel. Doing it twice a coincidence? As Gibbs says, 'there are no coincidences'.
