Even this can mess up. Last night I had a 7 table NAP game, had 7 A teams 7 Bs. Looking at the general arrangement I had 4 As N/S and 3 As pairs EW. Took a quick look when game started and thought the field looked balanced. I ...

John for acblscore it is important to get the last (the corrected) score, you need the Options General tab _ Program Settings box _ check the "Erase original record of deleted scores" This is not the default setting, so it is important to check your current value for the option.
BridgeMates Showing Percentages
This is very true, yet new BM users tend to do ctl+p or BMP post often, especially near the end of game. Well I as an experienced director tend to post a lot at the end. I occasionally get a correction because I post a score entered incorrectly. I ...

When I see the request to seed my game, I see it that each pair has approximately the same strength of opponents as any other. That is in a Mitchell the strength of NS field is approximately the same as EW. If I have two sections say A and B ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
Did I miss in the comments where the B.O.D. approved - This on-line event as an NABC event - It is a National Title Championship - Decided the Masterpoint awards. Typically individual awards are very small. I'm not against this experiment, yet for three years I've tried to have ...
Seating Seeding in clubs
Some comments here: 1.) Consider yourself lucky you have big enough games that need seeding. Our 3 - 6 table games are Howells - no seeding required. 2.) Seeding a 7 table Mitchell with multiple required stationary pairs can become a seeding nightmare. Just not enough tables to work great seeds. But ...
