Is this a way to run an organization?
I picked up the schedule for the next Mid-Atlantic Regional/knockout in Hunt Valley (mid-August) and noticed they are only starting knockouts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday is round robin teams and Thursday is Swiss day. While the inability to start a knockout each weekday will disappoint some people ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
The problems with the top bracket at Reston also affected the other bracket. Since only 19 teams signed up yesterday, there was a 12-team 2nd bracket (with 4 advancing) with teams from <1000-9000 in the bracket. If there had been a 3 team top bracket, there could have been 2 ...
It CAN Be Done
Wish they had these opportunities during my 7 years (BA & JD) as a Golden Gopher.
Gatlinburg 2019
It would be nice if we could pre-register our team online from home before we leave. We are bringing the same team as last year (just with a few more MPs). Is there a link to do this?
Probabilities of hand pattern match
My Turn to Speak
As an attorney it is absolutely shocking that presumably some attorney approved trying to terminate for cause, WHEN EITHER PARTY COULD TERMINATE WITHOUT CAUSE ON 30 DAYS NOTICE. If you want to get rid of him (for whatever lousy reason), just give him 30 days notice and he will be ...
ACBL's Flawed Masterpoint Formulas
I have found that the "new" round robin swiss/KO team structure has actually made it easier to get (more) points (especially gold) in the KO (Swiss) team events. Previously, we were typically in a 16 team bracket, with 8 teams (50%) losing their first match and getting nothing and ...
Oren Kriegel Doesn't Play at My Club
I started on board 1 with the "dubious" match point play, where there was a 1% chance the LM on lead would underlead the K diamonds against 6S, so I took the Ace and dropped the singleton K offside for 100%. We finished with a 70.42% game so I ...
Bad Habits of Intermediates
1. Balancing. If they are stopping at 2 of a minor or 2 hearts (especially if you're black), you probably are missing something. 2. Underleading or not taking Aces in suit contracts (and finding out they have a singleton). 3. Not taking the bidding into consideration in the line ...
Are very light openings against the spirit of the game? Are they a form of Psych in 21st century clothing?
We have Very Light 3rd hand openings checked on our convention cards. Certainly, any hand I'd overcall 1 with is worth opening in the 3rd seat (for me). We use (reverse) drury and my regular partners know not to get excited if the 4th seat doubles or overcalls unless ...
