Frivolous Appeal Penalty GCOC section
It does seem difficult to find an appropriate penalty for an appeal deemed to be frivolous. Here are a few ideas. Note, I am not necessarily recommending any of these, but just mentioning them in brainstorming for possibilities. 1) Loss of seating rights in some subsequent segment (in next year ...
Thought for Womens' USA1 Semifinals
I believe there is another "choose your opponent" case, but there is no issue of a second place team deserving consideration, since all choices are on equal footing. The case is in a Repechage year, if the USA1 losing finalist joins three remaining USA2 teams for the USA2 Semifinals. The ...

Open Memphis Discussion Thread
It’s awkward, but I managed to see NAP recaps, by picking a player name who I knew was playing, and looking him up on ACBL live. Look inside what’s there, and don’t be discouraged by tournament name. It looked like the top pair after day 1 was ...

Richard Tracy
I think the name problem stems from the ACBL reusing old ACBL player numbers from long- deceased players, and not correcting the winners database for that.
