Back again about Players who Qualify in two USBCs
getting dizzier than usual hypothetical #1: a 4-person team wins in the Rosenblum year. that team and 2-player augmentation is approved the following year, 2 of the original 4 enter and win the USBC for a different event. So now USA1 is 2 who won the USBC and 2 who ...
Back again about Players who Qualify in two USBCs
Peter: I absolutely believe your approach is much easier for a number of reasons - not the least of which is the mess it would make to the year-after-Rosenblum USBC schedules. Just wanted to ensure the nightmare case was addressed. Easiest is a rule that just says - if you have qualified ...

KASLE Wins Senior KO
during the final 3 boards i saw the bbo total as more than 1200 kibitzers in the open room
Bye Bye Baze
later on, that included some of MY $$ - at the Jones Street Club helluva way to treat someone who had just served in the navy (never thought to use that whine until now). But what a blast. Other than being nervous about possibly not being able to afford dinner that night ...
