Bridge Director
about me

ACBL tournament director.  I have directed and taught novice and intermediate games off and on for 30 years.  I have been directing large games for over 29 years and have been directing at the Washington Bridge League weekly unit game (average 50+ tables per session) for 27 years.  I play about 2-3 times a month.  I'm a dangerous X player, but unfortunately playing infrequently and with widely varied partners, have mixed results.  But I do mentor a number of Flight B and Flight C players in our area.  On the plus side, Power Ratings show me as one of the most underrated players by masterpoints!

GNT Format: Going Forward
Go back and reference the very first comment on the thread (from me). No one at ACBL HQ actually pays attention to their own rules, so no one noticed and no one cared.
GNT Format: Going Forward
While handicapping seems to be a rather poor practice to encourage the strongest candidate from the unit to compete at the national level, seeding does make some sense. And although masterpoints are often a flawed means of weighting a field, as one element, they do help to seed a field ...
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
If you apply CPR on a person who needs it and you crack their collar bone or a rib and it punctures their lung both of which have occurred before by people trained to do so, then the person has the latitude to sue you. While it is likely that ...
GNT Format: Going Forward
District 6 typically does file their CoC with the ACBL well before the filing date (the first date of the event). I see that we did file last year 2017-2018: but we did not file this year 2018-2019. The majority ...
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
I agree with you. I hope that more bridge players take CPR and take on that responsibility to be at tournaments to ensure that we have a good population of players who can provide this service. What I object to is having this burden and responsibility placed on ACBL directors ...
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
Ed, The Cardiac Arrest Survival Act of 2000. It's basically the umbrella Good Samaritan federal law. However there are clauses that stipulate that if you are responsible for gross negligence or reckless misconduct you could be exempt from the protections. The problem is that these terms are not defined ...
GNT Format: Going Forward
One of the things that District 6 does is the have a list of top flight players that are not playing that year available by phone for the director to call on if they need to poll players who are not playing in the event. We have had times when ...
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
Sorry. But as an ACBL director, I do not want to be CPR trained and responsible for performing such on players. I am not a medical professional and do not want to have a player's medical needs on my list of responsibilities. We typically ask for a medical doctor ...
GNT Format: Going Forward
From my experience, #7 and #8 will not happen. There is no one at the ACBL main offices who actually pays attention to these events as they deem them district events and not national events.
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Well said, Ellis. Since several of us have posted from District 6 about how well our GNTs are run, but we have had our share of problems in the past. Fortunately, we have done a good job of learning from past mistakes and have cleaned up the problems. Good luck ...
