4H. Expecting to make or have a great sacrifice (or both).
Defining Bridge
The majority of those who earn masterpoints in any given year are non-life masters. If past numbers stay the same only about 25% of those will ever become life masters. Those accomplishments should be celebrated because it IS a big deal in their life. And if we have shown them ...
ACBL Big Ideas - Augmenting Rank/Point Structure
Why do we need a new rating system? So someone without a lot of MP's can feed their ego and brag about their being a good player? Please enlighten me.
