VOTE on Whether an IMP penalty can be awarded for slow play if there is a video recording of the segment
I'm actually wondering whether being on Vugraph helps. Does Vugraph come with time stamps that allow you to review a session? As far as I know, it doesn't, so presumably the reason being on VG passes muster is that someone could have been watching and made a note ...
Why was this easy slam missed?
Saying a world-class should learn X is condescending enough to begin with, but it's pretty egregious when the remark is wrong or off-base.
Interesting Play Problem from Victor Champion Cup
Sitting around with people, someone says, "I normally hate when someone posts an 'interesting' hand on Bridge Winners, but this one actually was interesting." Not surprising coming from KRosenberg.
Outraged by the USBF
I don't disagree that sponsors care about that stuff. What I disagree with is that sponsors care about a team withdrawing [I]because they might have wanted to watch the rest of that match[/I]. Whether players are cordial and fun to be around has almost nothing to do ...

Andy, My reading of the other thread is that the main factor was that players were leaving. I would be curious whether the "honor bound" comment was editorial by Berkowitz or the viewpoint of the Brod team. Did the player who was leaving want to stay and play but felt ...
Outraged by the USBF
Tom, you write: "I think it would be even worse for a team to say nothing and continue playing for two more sets, with no intention to finish the match and the event." Really? If a team is down a bunch at the half, say, and they decide to play ...
Outraged by the USBF
Michael, "Would you (pay to) watch an NFL/Basketball/Soccer game with a team that already lost?" Did you (or anyone) pay to watch the USBC? It's one thing for sports that rely on advertisements and corporate sponsorships and ticket sales to require teams to play the whole time ...
Without knowing any details, it's possible that the plans were in place and chosen not to adjust those plans in light of the 100-imp deficit. These events are very long, and one cannot (reasonably) object to players making plans in case they are eliminated at various stages of an ...
