Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is minus 2800 a fair ruling?
Assuming 2Dxx is determined to be the result of the auction when did we start assigning scores based on deep finesse? In order to beat 2Dxx six tricks, the defense would have to be close to the following. South leads a high heart(cashing a second one is optional) South ...
Introduction to Swiss Teams
I remember running my first swiss team event almost 25 years ago. We scored on paper back then, ACBLscore did not match teams yet. You had to match teams by victory points on the sheets and resolve any conflicts where teams had played each other already manually. That first year ...

Designing a better "Ecosystem"
