Online Issue #3 - WT...?
I believe they don't disappear from the history you see while logged in, but the Hand Records have no ability to show a board with no result.
Robots at Virtual Club Games? Yes or No
In our club, I only use them as a brief substitute. After 5-10 minutes I find a permanent replacement.
Four Sectionals in D11 in One Week
For the ACBL, the "week" is Monday-Sunday. For most of the world, including almost every calendar I have ever seen, it is Sunday-Saturday.
Which ACBL regional Nov 4-10? This was a sectional until a month or two ago, got expanded to 5 days.
IMPed Pairs: towards a better datum
Yes, but in IMP pairs the grand may be equivalent to two whole boards. In matchpoints, you can only get one zero at a time.
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
From the ACBL Live homepage, when I click on NABC results, there are four different tournaments, the "normal" NABC, the youth, the collegiate, and online.
The Pros have no idea
I suspect that 5C may have happened, after a round and a half of Gerber.
A Missing Link? Monday's Not So Instant Matchpoint Game has links to both video and written analysis, or the hand records.
Will Engel's bidding problem: AQ74 Q5 AJ74 AT8
So in practice, partner had KJT65 AK732 5 95. Spades were 3-1, and hearts were 4-2, so we lost 14 in an otherwise very quiet match. My teammates couldn't believe I bid a grand in "this field," which was probably fair, in retrospect.
ATB-2/25/19 Common Game Board 1
My mentee bid 2 over 1, making my decision rather easy.
