Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB, or is bridge just too tough?
I'd like a "both bid too much" option.
Rating Study from ACBL Tournaments
If a weak pair played a flat board against a strong pair and achieved a draw, that does not say anything about the relative abilities of the two pairs, but it does say something about the nature of the game and ought to be considered in a prediction of the ...
Rating Study from ACBL Tournaments
Every matchpoint result is at its core an accumulation of single comparisons of pair's result to one other pair's result -- the sum of a bunch of wins, ties, and losses. While the strength of the table opponents should be a factor, the comparison is really against a pair ...
Rating Study from ACBL Tournaments

One-level is not a typo. It is intended to bar one-level transfer openings (as has been discussed recently in anither thread).
U31 junior event
Some people don't start playing duplicate until their 50s. Should we have a "junior" event for them?
How should Multi be allowed (if at all) under the Open+ chart?
I think it has more to do with randomizing events, even team games, due to unfamiliarity and/or because some are unprepared to face them. Or, even just because they might be superior and the experts need their comfort with "regular" methods maintained.
