The disappearing evening club game
Joe, several years ago, I tried a bridge game at Origins (much better than Gencon), and it drew 8 people, all but one were already duplicate bridge players. The problem is that places like Gencon and Origins are loaded with more attractive events than an old grandmother deck of cards ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
The split of opinions on start time of 50-50 is primarily because the split of "night" people and "morning" people is about 50-50. Morning people are asleep at the table by 10pm. Night people aren't even awake yet by 10am. This is physiological and not by choice. There is ...
New ACBL Convention Charts - general club impact

ATB - Hopeless grand

steaming tendencies
Many, many years ago, I played in my very first Life Master Pairs. Board 1 was a disaster, mostly my fault. Board 2 was worse because I was still dwelling on the board 1 disaster. So Round 1 we got two results that we knew (correctly) were two zeroes. Depressed ...
steaming tendencies
The decision has nothing do with whether I'm having a good day or a bad day. Anyone who knows the slightest bit about probability knows that prior events have no effect on future ones. I'll assess slam chances just like I always would.
Psymmetrics
How many times makes an implicit partnership agreement? I can tell a story that might help answer this. Several years ago, I played in a nationals with a BBO partner that came up from Bogata, Columbia, to play in our nats. Despite me telling him that he must NOT open ...
