Thanks, Stu. I didn't know the history.

I like Bernie's idea too.

Approaching it from the other direction, Buddy mentioned players with large collections of old masterpoints. Perhaps there is a way to have MPs “age out” for bracketing purposes so that people who haven't played seriously in years aren't stuck with their legacy seeds. (Perhaps a player could opt to have the director apply either current or age-adjusted points.) That would take some computer wizardry at headquarters, but IMHO it would likely be worth the investment.

Is that really the whole idea of a bracketed KO?

I thought people who wanted to play against the best had the chance to do that by getting on good teams and improving their game. Why remove that incentive?

#3 here is crucial.

Are people really saying “The top brackets in regional KOs are too strong; we need to spread the good players out more”?

I see that Jess Cohen and John Holcomb constructed essentially identical hands for partner yet took completely different lines of defense. Easy game, bridge.
