when is card considered played by declarer?
As noted above, Law 45.C.2 states: 2. Declarer is deemed to have played a card from his hand if it is: (a) held face up, touching or nearly touching the table; or (b) maintained in such a position as to indicate that it has been played. There is ...
ACBL Reorg Fails by One Vote.
Chris, Thanks for posting this, and the other election results.

The time has come: Senior USBC Seeding

The time has come: Senior USBC Seeding
Equating USSBC RR with World Championships RR ignores this factor: In the USSBC, the RR is 1.5 days, which is one fourth the total length of the subsequent KO phases. In the World Championships, the RR is 8 days, and is about the same length as the total length ...
