Favorite Bridge Memory
Have many, but having our team Kibitzed by 3 players I knew were on the top 500 list, wondering who our opponents must be.

ACBL Ranking
Ruby Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
10 tables, 24/24 boards played, no sharing, 1 set of boards - Double Hesitation Mitchell
Kevin thanks for the concept of using expanded hesitation movement. But if you can create a second set of boards it seems the Bowman for 10 tables might be a better answer. Tables 1-8 have 3 boards sequential. Table 9 plays boards in three board sets sequentially forward 1-3, 4-6 ...
Bridgemate Question
John and Bernard , I only one session and occasionally have the BCS generate the current rank report. I find that like the BM rank feature I often get incorrect results. I put BCS on he right of my screen, acbl resuts on my left. It is very obvious they disagree ...
REACH vs. Sectional: One Solution
There is a general Special Game Rule for ACBL clubs. From the acbl club administration site. [I]When a sectional (excluding STaCs) or higher rated event (regional or NABC) is being conducted within 25 miles of a club game’s playing site, the club is permitted to hold only its ...
"The Game Itself"
Ed Judy. Point well taken. [i]Yes, points matter, particularly do those who don't have a whole bunch. [/i] Newer players need a glimmer of hope that the time and money they are spending is leading to some success. .
Evaluating the Quality of a Stratification
When the awards are masterpoints, it appears that masterpoints must be the differentiator. If the reward is improved ranking as in the UK then ranking should be used for strat limits. IMHO The concept is as follows: Note the following ACBL example applies only to those not in the top ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Len and Don Just a small comment. The 2013 Longest Day gained our club and the ACBL two members. Part of our activities was to hold bridge events outside of the physical club site. One was a university the other a restaurant. Exposing others to duplicate bridge. This found two ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Sorry John In our club open game up with Novices and our limited games also. Out of 13 registrations for player playing in our club only two got points. 1 A/X type player our only player playing in in the club for the week signed up for Reach. 1 ...
What is your ruling?
Mark as right as you are, and you are correct. The only real option is to not let them play up until they want to and are willing to learn. So don't keep asking why limited players don't play up. And appreciate the fact many of them don ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
That is okay. For this week's REACH. TCG gave me some statistics that indicates nothing much is of true value until the event is over. Preliminaries show the major registrations are those needing Gold as expected, but also include many in very low masterpoints those that often don't ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Jeff I have an additional set of numbers but do it to the current REACH. Base it on your clubs regular attendees. 1. In this coming REACH how many are registered that have 0-750 masterponts. 2. In the last local NY city area Regional how many played in the 0-750 ...
