When you stay at a FIVE star hotel, everything within is more expensive than at 3 or 4 star establishments. To be expected. That said, there is a high end food court (Block 16 Urban Food Hall), the "Secret Pizza" place, and if all else fails, just step outside. I ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
For what it is worth, Reston finished with 1,972 tables, down 225 tables (10.24%) from 2018. Sad omen of our times since Reston Town Center is among the better sites for a tournament. Many complaints that there were too many Regionals this week and little protection or no ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
There are multiple issues that Steve has raised. IMHO, the ACBL MUST do a better job in helping Tournament Chairs plan schedules that maximize the chances for success. Input from TDs such as Chris Miller above are very helpful. 1) STOP having new 2 day KOs starting every day. It ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Sorry to disillusion you, Michael but I have played in at least three 3-way KO finals. There are multiple scenarios, usually when a TD screws up somehow (teams in wrong bracket) to reach that point. But the last one -- at the Toronto Regional this year was deliberate. Some new double ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Ray, the world miscalculates, puts scores on the wrong side of the ledger, gets the vulnerability wrong, not sure if a contract was down 1 or 2 or even made! That is why teams COMPARE scores and imp differences with the other team before turning in an official result. Really ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Ray... you play a long match. When it is finished you compare scores and verify with the losing team. The margin was 17 impos. The losing team went home. The winning team turned in a score of plus 25! Several days later the losing team discovered that the score posted ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Russ, just saying that the ACBL "deeply regrets the confusion" doesn't cut it. Does the ACBL Special Events Department actually READ the proposed CoC before rubber stamping them? Where was the VP scale that was going to be used mentioned? The ethical issues surrounding the "winning" team are beyond ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Mike, from reading the above it appears (to me at least) that your original position of "pedantically" ;) upholding a literal reading of the CoC (despite never having been followed before, not clearly communicated to the players, and no VP scale posted on site) has evolved into recognizing the injustices that ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Very well said, John! It pains me to say this but a sense of justice, ethics & basic fairness appears to be in short supply among ACBL Board members and management in Horn Lake. They call it a D. 22 issue. There are more important bigger issues in the ACBL. I ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Mike, the word pedantic comes to mind as I peruse your never ending posts filled with worldly intimate knowledge of the CoC. I prefer to look at the BIG picture, examine all the variables, and do what is just and fair. This is a no brainer. Had the CoC ever ...
