OK, so I tried 2NT because I didn’t want to get past 3NT and thought it was too good for 3D. Partner had AQTxx KQx xxxx x so they took the first 6 club tricks. The real winners were the ones who gameforced so they could certainly get to game. This was a flat board, they were in 6 diamonds off 1..

The email sent, the fact that very few like Walter, and it might not be the board it is who the board is trusting info from. But other than that not really, it just seems evident to me when I read the email sent that they ignore the facts that we have given to them and trust others, I can’t see any other reason. Also, thanks for the respectful reply, I think my message was rude and I’m sorry.

As to 1, it doesn’t specify a vp scale and this has been one of our biggest arguments, plus having the COC there (if it even was) was irrelevant since it was available when we asked. As to 2, I have no clue, seems crazy that there is no penalties.

I mean I think we would be happier to have this rather than nothing, but I think we still have a winning case…

Now posted, looks like there was a change in the masterpoints awards. Originally 1st-36 2nd-26 3rd-20(don’t remember this to be honest) now it is 1st 48 2nd 36 3rd 27

The typical correction period is 30 minutes, it was corrected after 4 hours. I think since this has happened we have until the Wednesday morning in Vegas to correct this since they have already corrected it late..

Ray, I’m sorry to tell you but most of what’s written in this letter is incorrect, they claim they’ve tried to make this decision without prejudice, but the email is made of it since they believe the facts given from the other team with evidence against those “facts”. We have told them what happened but they keep on ignoring us, the author of the email also states “Kissinger announced the format and type of scoring”. He pretends like this is a fact, he wasn’t there, and that is completely untrue.

If it was 4 teams everybody still gets to play all day, semi-final, and then 3rd 4th playoff and final

Not sure if he stated in writing(although my partner Walt said he did), but it was clear that he didn’t intend for this to be a victory point event, especially because he told us it was W/L at the event.

I don’t even know how the system for it works, my dad just explained that they have this to avoid so many lawsuits and he sent them a letter.

Not real legal action, just going to the acbl arbitrator and telling them the situation so they can make a final ruling, we don't plan on getting a lawyer.

I mean, I don't consider a 3 way to be a round robin, because a bracketed swiss is a round robin and that always uses vps. If we don't consider a 3 way a round robin vps aren't supposed to be used.

To be honest, don't think the complainers were in champ flight, I suspect they were in flight B or C(or maybe even A but unlikely) and were upset that they “Didn't get their gold points!”.

Another thing is that when we first corresponded with the tournament manager he claimed it was scored on w/l. This event was never supposed to be scored with vps, and he knew it, but now he claims that it was the whole time. But once the director used vps they had to defend this choice.

Hi Peg, don't stop playing bridge! We all enjoy seeing you at tournaments and your kindness. This is a crazy situation, but happily a first for me. It will be hard to find people to manage an event this poorly.

After going through to COC more I’m convinced that they are calling for a 3 day event. For day 1 it says 7 team format. Which calls for a round robin down to 3. For day 2 with 3 teams it says “see 3 team format” which qualifies 2 teams to the next day. Finally it will now say “See 2 team format” which is just a KO match, hopefully not converted to vps!
