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

Rubber bridge and the clubs
Thanks Ken and Jeff. My thought was the possible migration for a rubber bridge group into duplicate was Swiss. And you both don't deny that concept. But you both indicate a IMP [b]pair[/b] game is never a consideration. Worst than trying a matchpoint pairs. Thanks again. '
Rubber bridge and the clubs
Please expand on your answer. In many sectionals on Swiss Sundays the Rubber bridge players often show up.
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Tim, good this type discussion is needed. I hope you saw my edited comment. I'm not affiliated with REACH other than trying to provide it at my club and I listed what I saw were new concepts that needed to be measured. As for the "Moderated Fee", my point ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
for REACH to appear successful. We to look at what I think are concepts of the experiment.;' Important the concepts listed are mine not an official REACH list. Concept 1. Players would desire a week long ACBL-wide contest played in clubs using across a large field matchpointing for the final ...
Insufficient Raise - One level rebid of opener's suit.
I was wanting a clarification of why responder didn’t have a possible comparable bid. I thought responder had not noticed any of the bids and might of opened by mistake. that was not the case it was that they were responding to an 1 diamond bid
