Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
First Dupli-Swiss at ACBL club - positives and negatives
Minor feature but the dupli-swiss supports the use of standard pair convention cards since you never play the same board twice. This implies no need for a club to purchanse team inserts.
First Dupli-Swiss at ACBL club - positives and negatives
I'm not sure how to do it. Animation might work. ------------------------------------------------------ Today we had a bracketed flighted teams club game swiss scored. 18 total tables we ran A the open flight as 7 teams B the 1500 to 2500 flight as 6 teams C the 0-1500 flight as 5 teams ...

First Dupli-Swiss at ACBL club - positives and negatives
Bud I do want to comment on your arrangement. I recently ran a 3 table pa9r game barometer style. 6 board rounds 2 boards per table on the 3 tables. I placed the tables a good distance apart thus I had to caddy the boards. Similar to the triples you ...
Your Business Growth: What matters most to Bridge Clubs and Teachers?
