ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A better rating system
There is a simple data feed from Pianola to NGS; or from Scorebridge or BridgeWebs.

Precision 2!D with a twist?
'People overcall 1 with crappy 8 points. they will not be able to do that on the second level.' Wanna bet? (...and who needs 8 points anyway...)
What's in a Name?
Reading through these suggestions tells you all you need to know about the state of our game, bridge players are rubbish at marketing. I don't even like my own suggestion.
What's in a Name?
Say what it does on the tin: Bids'n'tricks.
