ACBL - Time to add new GLM Ranks?
Good story. It's surprising how often the winners of a national championship are a last-minute matchup. Back when there were no other NABC events running at the same time as the Mixed Pairs, male pairs would often go "shopping" for female pairs around the regional-event entry desk. Twice, my ...
ACBL - Time to add new GLM Ranks?
New proposal: Two second-place finishes in NABC events = One win.
ACBL - Time to add new GLM Ranks?
Totally agree. I think they're all hard to win, and the ones Eric mentioned aren't even all that "restricted". Everyone can enter a mixed event and the ultra-vast majority of ACBL members can enter senior events. For some, the most difficult GLM requirement is getting to 10,000 ...
ACBL - Time to add new GLM Ranks?
If you're going to start making distinctions about which events are tough enough to be GLM-eligible, why limit the rejections to events restricted by gender and age? The fields in senior and mixed events are at least as strong as those in the Wernher Open Pairs, which is held ...
One liners

One liners
The most famous score comparison from our area of the country (Midwest) happened back in 1973. Ron Smith: "Plus 430." Roger Lord: "Lose 'em all."
Crowdfunding for New Bridge Organization
You identify potential demand by doing research on who your best customers are and what features you need to offer to motivate them to buy your product. A small pilot event shouldn't be the first or only way you test the market. A successful entrepreneur never just guesses what ...
Most Pervasive "Bridge Club Myths" re Bidding?
Thanks, Christopher, for starting this thread and thanks to all who have posted. As it happens, I've been working on a series of articles on exactly this topic. It's very helpful to hear what misconceptions are prevalent in other parts of the country and the world. Please keep ...
Crowdfunding for New Bridge Organization
Richard: "You are describing the way that things currently work in North America and presuming that this applies universally." David said this organization would be US-based to start. My point is that he's aiming for a very tiny target market with no proven level of demand. Basic bridge is ...
