How to top players feel about bracket-1 KO's being small vs. populated with those playing up?
If you decide at some point in your career that you goal is to get better and play "reasonably competently" against the best, two things will happen. 1-You will not win many masterpoints for two reasons. First, you don't win many masterpoints getting your head handed to you and ...

Jeff- I think that there are more perfect brackets than 16. 9 or 12 come to mind. I think that if the directors see a natural break after 9 or 12 top teams they will deny a request to move up because they will need to move 3 or 4 ...

Outraged by the USBF
The interests served are the pros collecting two paychecks and the event is bigger.
Outraged by the USBF
When the discussion originally came up my reaction was like George, "How can you drop off a team qualified to play in a WC." It would be unthinkable for me. I play for the love of the game and struggle to find amateurs willing to show up and play the ...
Outraged by the USBF
George: In the case of Lynn Baker it is her longtime regular partner who is registered for the Senior Trials and I am quite surprised that Karen (McCallan) has not dropped off her Senior team. However, Karen expressed her intention to play in two events during the time the discussion ...
Outraged by the USBF
Actually I am on the advisory board that discussed this very arrangement. There were different opinions and a vote and this arrangement won. So beating up the USBF Board or Marty is not indicated. Tom
