Improving the Seeding Process
USBF events also start with a phase that includes shorter matches. I'm sure one of the reasons the WBF starts with a Round Robin is that many teams travel a great distance and don't want to play one match and be done. Not something unreasonable for the ACBL ...
Ed Spear's bidding problem: xx KQx AQJ8 K9xx

Appeal from Kansas City
Suppose that North is allowed to take back his 2 bid as a result of not being properly alerted. The 2 call is UI to East. Or, at east I think it is. How would the auction then proceed? Maybe that is not a LA question, but EW ...
