Favorite Bridge Memory
Have many, but having our team Kibitzed by 3 players I knew were on the top 500 list, wondering who our opponents must be.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Would you call for the director?
Really off the topic here but the [b]tone[/b] of many of your responses are somewhat annoying to me. No matter the action - director called or not and not down playing the Jeff's actual playing level, which is much higher than what occurs in many of my games ...
An Absurd ACBL Procedure
Slightly off topic. Many clubs have started having half tables filled in with BBO robots in pair games. In a club Swiss has anyone done a BBO robot team? The real solution of course is to get rid of the 3way,triple, round robin altogether. The BBO robots could solve ...
An Absurd ACBL Procedure
In ACBL land without BMs, in a Swiss the end of a 3-way (Round Robin) comes at a bad time for directors. They are trying to score the other matches and record results on big paper sheets and make next round assignments. If using premade boards they are trying to ...
Eight Is Enough -- Seeking suggestions for rank definitions etc.
At our club We calculate our 1,2,3 breakdowns typically based on past attendance. Have to admit we modify it somewhat to also reflect what is used at our Unit games. We put up signup sheets at the club about 3 weeks prior to the event. You can register ...
Eight Is Enough -- Seeking suggestions for rank definitions etc.
Please keep us informed of any Sectional usage. In the DFW (Dallas/Ft. Worth) area evening games are getting rare. This weekend I played in Dallas afternoon game Friday planned on a Friday evening game that they did not schedule. Saturday night they tried a Fun game - Significant discount and ...
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
Hi Steven From some of my comments you might think LM is not an accomplishment. Well it is important accomplishment. And I do celebrate it and other rank achievements with my fellow players. I teach bridge at our club along with my wife. We have assisted many players by playing ...
History of Duplicate Bridge
I am aware it is possible to make life master without ever defeating another life master pair. And it may be very true and sad that a person can make life master without playing in an [b]Open[/b] Club, Sectional, or Regional event, that is, by playing in limited ...
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
Mark - only life master has been moved up and some pigments applied to ranks higher now that did not exist a few years back. But there has been some effort to make them more realistic. BUT, it seems regional and some sectionals are quickly moving up the strats within the ...
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
Peg I like your secret plan. Here is my suggestion and it may be what you implied. Make all limited games and strat winners based on less than 750 masterpoints given within the club to have no pigment in the point awarded. This is essentially the same as playing online ...
History of Duplicate Bridge
This quote or something similar "although I sort of object to the idea that someone can make LM without ever actually playing against one outside of their local club." is made often. Can somebody please name a player that has made Life Master that never played against another Life Master ...
