Blue Over Red Boards
To confuse things more, I've played a set of boards (a few years ago) where a particular board would have red card pockets to mark the vulnerability, and the very next board did not. I found this to be very strange. I've since seen it several times. I ...
Common False Preference
> But how did we get on the topic of bowling? I'm not sure, but now that we're there, can this topic get pinned? No, wait, strike that.
GNT Format: Going Forward
District 16 is almost all of Texas (leaving off a slice including El Paso and another slice that includes Amarillo) -- plus, we have all of Mexico. So yes, geography is a real issue in the GNTs and NAPs. I can't recall a team or pair from Mexico in either ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Perhaps both teams get to play in the national finals -- but regardless of the first-day scores, no more than one D22 team can advance to the KO rounds (ensuring that the second entry doesn't keep someone out of the KOs they would otherwise have qualified for).
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
District 16 is similar -- it's almost all of Texas, and all of Mexico. The GNT is typically held in Houston (NAP a more central Austin or San Antonio). That means teams from 'out of town' will have a 3- to 4-hour drive each way if they're in a ...
Looking for a partner for Memphis IMP Pairs or Mixed pairs
Hi, David. I'm booked for the IMP Pairs, and not a good candidate for you in the Mixed... but if you happen to get an opening for the Silodor Open, the Fast Pairs, or the Jacoby Swiss, I'd love to hear from you.

Seeking regular opponents for Bridge Base Online
Hello, Mark. My partner Wes Peirce and I are able to play at least occasionally (typically weekly when not at a tournament or business event). My BBO name is SelfGovern. Shoot me a note there and we can connect. We play a basic 2/1 system.
Master Points for Foreign Players lists Sioux City as having had 421 total tables. That does seem tiny.
Christine Denny's bidding problem: 8 K542 AK9765 96
Also in this particular case, the partnership uses a mini-Roman 2D opening.
