Defensive problem with interesting ending
What are our defensive agreements? What form of scoring?
You be the Comittee .
"Additionally, had the diamond king been offside (or remote chance there is a ruff) - then 6♥ wouldn't have made." IANAD (Director), but it's totally unclear to me why this matters. Aren't we talking about THIS hand in evidence before us rather than any hypothetical variation? On just ...
Legal? Ethical?

Columbus - Baldwin North American Pairs
The unfortunate news for you is that the North American Pairs are one of the ACBL's "grassroots" events, in which ACBL district play qualifies pairs for the national event. To my knowledge, this event is only available to ACBL members who have qualified at the district level. https://www ...
Crane Trophy
I have never followed these races closely enough to know, but isn't it highly unlikely that one month of club results will produce a change in the Crane standings?
Fall NABC Poll
