"My dear Kepler, I wish that we might laugh at the remarkable stupidity of the common herd. What do you have to say about the principal philosophers of this academy who are filled with the stubbornness of an asp and do not want to look at either the planets, the moon or the telescope, even though I have freely and deliberately offered them the opportunity a thousand times? Truly, just as the asp stops its ears, so do these philosophers shut their eyes to the light of truth."

A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Has no one heard the great Warren Zevon's "My Sh*t,s F*cked up" ?
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Well.., it is Beatlesish
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
It is 9 days since the event. ACBL Live for Rick, the ACBL tournament results do not have the event recoreded. Also if you want to see the GNT rosters you can't get them with "search" or google but there is a place tucked away. Under Clubs>Special events ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Sufficient but statistically "insignificant" if more digits than IMPS
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
As a chemist, I was always somewhat distraught at the continuous scale as it uses too many digits. That is if we do multiplication of division any result tht has more signicant digits than the number used to calculate needs to be rounded. having failed to qualify by 0.02 ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Wow! I have played in Open in this event in D16 in this event for far more years than Fin(n) has been around. And I don't recall any director calls let alone memos.
