Tied pairs winners in a 5 table howell.
Our club officially has the BAM approach to resolve ties. The only thing that it matters for jackpot money awards. But most players prefer splitting the jackpots and that is now our custom. We give the top pair a free play, use to give them to both pairs that tied ...
Would You Successful Beginning Teachers/Club Managers Please Help with this Decision?
A comment here. Our approach to new students are to get duplicate players in our club. So we are EZ! bridge oriented. That is we have the students playing duplicate bridge games after a short lesson, assuming we have enough students to make a game. Yes EZ! bridge gives masterpoints ...
Our Implementation of Hand Records in Bracketed Round Robins
Thanks for the thread. When I saw the sectional advertising in the District 16 Scorecard for hand records, I was wondering how you planned on doing the movement woke up this morning and had my concern answered. For those that haven't looked the bracketed event did well 5 or ...
ACBL selling points in many ways REACH the ultimate selling of the Gold
Assumptions can be made but does not seem to always be true. This past week we had the only REACH games in the Unit. On the week-end one of our REACH IN players went out of state for a regional; and two went to a nearby sectional.
Using Excel to Run Swiss?
Good Luck. Since you made your post I too have been trying to create an Excel interface. First for 4 to 7 tables use the proven movements like discussed at the MIT site http://web.mit.edu/mitdlbc/www/contrib.html#Manager These essentially match the ones we use for ...
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Can you edit your sentence please. One of the directors in the sentence needs to be player. But to the real question in point. I created this OP because we are having real problems in getting directors for our club. Our 4 main directors live 35 - 45 minutes away without ...
Using Excel to Run Swiss?
While you are waiting for other answers let me discuss how we handle this at our club for most IMP games. First this is not Swiss but Round Robin approach, however we do awards for wins as well as overalls. We essentially bracket the game. To meet ACBL club rules ...
Card dropped on the floor
In my ACBL training the following was discussed for defender cards. Take a pass card from the bidding box have the dropper (and the declarer agreeing to the location) place the pass card at the point of the original dropped card. Then determine if it could be seen by the ...
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
Jeff Why consider this group? or Why does the ACBL give Jack a cold shoulder?
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
Don there has been a second shift. KO to Gold Rush pairs. My last time in Gatlinburg several years ago GR was being first introduced. Attendance was low. Now in the Gatlinburg the GRs are show large numbers. Not sure if GR help or hurt attendance but it is a ...
