Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Web vs. Sections
The section award is capped at 1.50 MPs, but the overall award (0.10 per table, which does not depend on the movement) is capped at 2.50 MPs.
A New Blue Ribbon Pair, II
Each of the diagrams has the 8 in both North and East--I think East should have A43
National Bridge Organization?
The latest Form 990 for the ABA lists it as a 501(c)(7) (the subsection for social clubs).
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
At IMPs, passing at least avoids a disaster (we probably do not have a game anywhere). At matchpoints, we could easily be missing a partscore that would score very well for us. It would be good to have an agreement that double implied this sort of hand.
ACBL Table Count over Time
Richard, the ACBL has 26 years of club data at this link: https://web3.acbl.org/club-table-count/ Matthew Kidd did an analysis last year of tournament data from 2003 to 2015 herehttp://lajollabridge.com/Articles/TournamentTableCounts.htm#types (mentioned in this BW post: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/tournament-table-counts/) I ...
BYRNES Wins Women's BAM
19 teams entered. 10 teams played in the finals.
Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: KQ92 A87 AKQ75 2
Under the ACBL alert rules, 4C is subject to a delayed alert because it [i]is a bid--not a pass, double, or redouble--above 3NT[/i] happened after the first round of bidding was over. (Make the alert after the auction but before the opening lead if you wind up declaring ...
Two Montreal bridge clubs cancel Worldwide pairs game
There were heats in April and May for other days of the week. If your pair won any of these heats, you got to go to China as well. The ACBL mentioned them in the ACBL Bulletin (in March, if I recall correctly) but left clubs to sign up themselves ...
Was I Right or Wrong?
Definitely right. New players especially deserve encouragement. Plus, opener is likely to pass anyway. All that your side really lost on this hand was 20 or so seconds of declarer's panic between his pass and when dummy came down.
Using ACBLScore and BridgeMate on an Apple Computer
The software that the DBC of Winchester uses is Bridgetab (http://www.bridgetab.com/) and it does work on Android phones. (The main disadvantage of this technology versus Bridgemates is that the tablets need frequent recharging. For a once-a-week club, this is not a problem.)
