Coffee housing
I am not aware of a procedural penalty being issued in a single situation I've been involved in over 12 years of playing. The interesting corollary to this is that I (and others?) are perhaps not calibrated to appropriate penalty sizes. My gut reaction is that 1/4 board ...
Coffee housing
If the intent was indeed to tease, then I would hope such is appropriate for the playing circumstances...i.e. a relaxed club atmosphere or similar. But in that atmosphere, an ethical East should also then go out his/her way to correct the problem by saying "let's just ...
District 9 (Florida) GNT final
District 4 (Eastern PA, Delaware, Southern NJ, parts of upstate NY) does require pre-registration.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: QJT2 AK A8 A8764

Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: QJT2 AK A8 A8764
3 spades. Unlikely to be with 6 hearts. Could be with 5 diamonds.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: QJ85 --- KJ8743 J84

One More Stupid ACBL Policy
This rule creates a fascinating incentive for the ACBL. Getting ONE additional team beyond 64 creates an extra day of play and an extra day of revenue. This would mean at a minimum $6500 (assuming all teams have only 4 and only one extra team beyond the 64) beyond what ...
What is a "world class player"?
I'm shocked that "Winning multiple national championships" is the leading vote-getter. How does someone who wins 3 national championships in Lithuania automatically make the "world class" cut? (With due apologies to Lithuania...I could use any non-elite bridge nation to make the same point).
