Melanie Manfield's bidding problem: AK97652 T --- K9753
I agree that it was sensible for my partner (North) to drive to 7. The fault was completely mine.
A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
I don't see why the Strat B team would feel that way, especially when they would be guaranteed a sizable MP award for being a semifinalist in the Bracket 1 KO. My experience is, that even if a team is unhappy about meeting a particular other team that they ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
The format of the RRKO in which I played in Reston was just slightly different from what you describe, Art. Bracket 3 had 9 teams. My team played six, 8-board matches. I know that some teams were in three-way matches at some point. We were not among them. Obviously, there ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Okay. Well, if anyone knows of any such event within the ACBL at the Regional level (starting with an Open Swiss including everyone before brackets are created), perhaps they will comment about it.
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
Yes -- it looks as if the Wilkes-Barre Regional will offer Bracketed Knockouts as described by Ray Yuenger, using the same format as the recent Reston, Virginia Regional. However, I heard last night that there may have been a recent District 4 Regional that did have a Knockout that started with ...

What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
Hi Ray, I think that each person has to come up with his or her own version! Cal Newport writes that he wasn't sure about whether to include streaming TV, movies, etc., and people urged him to include those (in other words, to abstain from TV, streaming films on ...
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
I have not seen 1 day of Swiss to determine brackets (in the mid-Atlantic area/near Washington, D.C.). Where is that happening?
Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
I agree, plus the word "relegated" has a rather negative connotation.
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
John N. is reminding me of an experience I had two summers ago. I traveled across the country by train (changing trains in Chicago). There wasn't much wi-fi. I ended up teaching several young people to play bridge (ages ranging from early 30's to late teens. The youngest ...
