District 9 Wins GNT
As "someone famous" once said: "It ain't over till it's over."
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
Master points mean what they mean to ME, and I really don't care very much about what they may or may not mean to anyone else. Master points have kept me interested in sanctioned duplicate bridge games for 66 years now. I remember ecstatically coming home from a duplicate ...
Seamon Junior USBC Winners
Congratulations to the team winners, all of whom have proven throughout the trials that they have done their bridge homework and are paying their dues to the entire bridge community--maybe even overpaying. There is simply NO DOUBT: the U.S. bridge community has invested countless time, money, effort, blood, sweat ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
It seems to me that the "problems" from which the GNT's currently suffer are inherent in the concept. So: 1) make it limited to players with fewer than 7500 masterpoints, 2) award it enough masterpoints to make it attractive enough for "grass roots" players to be willing suffer great ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
I second Rich Newell's comment. As a flight A player who became such by don't of playing very very often but never very well, I consider NABC's to be 1) expensive; 2) inconvenient; 3) much less fun than playing against friends at the club, many of whom ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Has the day of the "split GNT final" at the Unit and/or District level actually come, at least for the early rounds?
USBF Junior Celebrity Guest Night: Jeff Meckstroth
How about having two junior teams play a "three-way" team match against an archived match once played by two guest celebrity experts, taken from the days when those experts actually WERE juniors? (Lall/Greenberg or Bathhurst/Grue matches come readily to mind.) Theb have those experts guest-commentate the juniors' play ...
Misinformation
Opponents' questions about any pair's bidding go specifically to any and all understandings that pair have about that call. That 2NT bid does not "just" ask for a further description of partner's hand; it asks specifically for partner to bid a feature if he has one. The opponents ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
I have occasionally been appalled at the WAY directors sometimes get what are supposedly the correct boards to what is supposedly the correct table. At a regional three years ago, I overheard an ACBL director ask a player, while pointing to a caddy, "Please tell that caddy to put these ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Most bridge professionals make good money. I would expect them to EARN it, by reading the conditions of contest and being familiar with any other regulations that might conceivably apply. I am simply aghast that no one involved knew about the double blitz regulation. What ELSE to bridge professionals not ...
