A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
One benefit of this proposal is eliminating all the complaining we hear from many players about having to compete against pro teams. With this proposal, augmented by the Super-A flight, having pro teams in the field can only increase the MP awards other teams earn or be completely neutral; it ...
A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
Flight size? I recommend a presumption that each flight will have exactly 9 teams, unless large MP breaks dictate a different number. Based on MP breaks, though, I'm willing to live with flights of anywhere from 6 to 12 teams. One exception: the "Super A flight," for pro teams ...
Someone has blundered
IMO, both players are equally at fault for failing to "protect" their hands, and what happened was an accident, so I would assign both pairs an average-minus.
A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
p.s.: In deciding where to set the dividing line for which teams play together in the same Swiss field, I wouldn't have a pre-determined number. Rather, all teams that average X MPs or more (perhaps 3,000 MPs) go into the top Swiss field, while all teams that ...
A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
Steve, Your "Stratified Swiss KO" mirrors what I've been advocating for a long time, both when I presented it to ACBL two years ago and when I explained it in responding to several other people's posts on BW over the past year. The one thing I dislike in ...
How to find the diamond fit?
I agree with 100% of this comment.
What is fair.
I would adjust the score to 4S down 2, undoubled, for -200. East's 2S bid was highly questionable in terms of hand evaluation judgment, but you can't adjust the score for that. East correctly explained their agreement. He is permitted to misevaluate his hand. He is also permitted ...
What is fair.
"East has a 9 loser hand, why should he get excited?" Ian, are you serious? In what world is this a 9-loser hand IN THE CONTEXT of the auction? Partner promised 5-5 majors. That leaves a maximum of 3 losers in the minors, not the 6 you're counting. East ...
Mike, regardless of what Karen Walker may or may not have said in the Bulletin, I don't believe that's most people's rationale. For most, the benefit of bypassing 1S with 4333 is in having a 1S rebid guarantee 4+ cards in the minor suit that was opened ...
Make Bridge Fun Again
Paul, what is the point of having the rules be the same but "not enforcing" them in social games? Why not just be explicit and change to having two different sets of rules? As long as the rules say use of UI should be punished, certain players will call the ...
