about me

I was a traveling pro for what felt like decades but was really only a few years. Since 2011, I've been a full-time Tournament Director for the ACBL, traveling the American and Canadian West doing my best to help people have a fabulous time at tournaments. I still play and teach when I have the time. In my spare time I enjoy reading, biking, watching Vugraph, and (slowly) learning to cook.

Required Percentage of Boards
In most USBF events, the round robin schedule is *not* known to the participants. This removes the sticky issue of seating rights when two teams play a one-segment match. Blind lineups (which players are playing, and their compass directions) are submitted before each RR match, and are submitted together before ...
USBF To Hold U31 Trials for 2020 WYBTC
After dealing with the Open and Mixed, three or four tables of U31 will feel like a day off. :)
Frivolous Appeal Penalty VOTE
For an appeal to go through, it must have the approval of both members of the pair that was at the table and their team captain. Whether a player on the team who isn't one of those people approves of the appeal or not is (legally) immaterial. I would ...
Frivolous Appeal Penalty GCOC section
LAW 92 RIGHT TO APPEAL A. Contestant’s Right A contestant or his captain may appeal for a review of any ruling made at his table by the Director. Any such request, if deemed to lack merit, may be the subject of a sanction imposed by regulation. I parse this ...
Penultimate segment
I was kibitzing at the table when this happened. Kit doubled 100% in tempo - enough so that my guess was he thought he was 0-2 in the reds rather than 2-0! Impressive. Also fun: when Kit bid 7 at his first turn, Zia (his screenmate) gave him an admiring ...
Thought for Womens' USA1 Semifinals
I'm pretty sure this is the only choose your opponent option in any of the USBCs. And yes, this committee now covers all the USBCs.
2019 General Conditions of Contest Final Review
I've let Jan know about some changes to Law numbers in the 2017 Laws to go in Section XIV. I have a few other suggestions: Pg 2: ineligibility for cheating. Should we put in here (or in Section XII) that if a team is DQd for cheating during the ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
The Conditions of Contest for each event determine what the maximum carryover can be in each session. When crossing over from Day 1 to Day 2 of a two day event or Day 2 to Day 3 of a three day event, zero carryover for the bottom contestant is used ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Scoreboard for Baze Senior KO: I'm sure the BW code monkeys will put this link on the front page sometime in the morning.
Mixed, Senior & Women's USBC Schedule Changes
Danny - the Mixed (and Open, Women's, and Seniors) will all be in Schaumburg in 2019, and will continue to be through at least 2021. The mention of Denver was totally tangential to this discussion. (I completely agree about that hotel, though!)
