ACBL Ranking
Ruby Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Use of resources
Ray, how do you calculate this 75% or 700 not playing in local clubs?
That Moment When you realise the ACBL has no idea
Thanks Edward Although Instant Matchpoints can be enjoyable just from the excitement of opening the traveler; the marketing for the game is the Gold Points. When I run the game I do the same as you Howels become Mitchel's and last time because of new Gold available at 750 ...
The Game of Points
The normal beginning teaching for Standard American 1 NT responses is PIG Since the 1 Nt hand should have 15 to 17 HCP and it takes about 25 HCPs to make game. So you as responder [b]P[/b]ass with less than 8 points [b]I[/b]nvite with ...
HOW MANY OF YOU RUN TWO GAMES SIMULTANEOUSLY ?
We run two games in a session. One open the other a limited masterpoint. Each game is in its own room and thus we try use two directors most of the time. We use separate computers as well each with their own Bridgemate server.
A Mentoring Program with a Twist
Jeff please explain the mentoring part. This appears to be scheduled Pro-Ams. For Example beyond this game what commitment is delegated to the Pro? - Next time must have same AMs in the Swiss for how long? - Pro must play with each am in a pairs game at least how many ...
Complaints at clubs/bridge anywhere.
Brad, feel for you. These players that complain are often the same ones that feel its okay to psych against novices - which are of course, especially to novices, [b]deliberate[/d] bad or unsound bids.
A better rating system
Jeff, if it is for marketing maybe to have a valid rating requires something like the following: In the prior year to be considered a valid rating requires participation in the following 1 National Open events. ----Or 6 Regional Open events. (includes GNT and NAP and District level. ----Or If ...
Arrow Switches
I'm sure it all depends on your clubs preferences. Being in acbl land and a smaller club we regularly use Howell movements with arrow switches being made at stationary tables throughout the play. This is common so - We have table mats for the 5 table 7 round movement in ...
Tied pairs winners in a 5 table howell.
Our club officially has the BAM approach to resolve ties. The only thing that it matters for jackpot money awards. But most players prefer splitting the jackpots and that is now our custom. We give the top pair a free play, use to give them to both pairs that tied ...
Would You Successful Beginning Teachers/Club Managers Please Help with this Decision?
A comment here. Our approach to new students are to get duplicate players in our club. So we are EZ! bridge oriented. That is we have the students playing duplicate bridge games after a short lesson, assuming we have enough students to make a game. Yes EZ! bridge gives masterpoints ...
