Outraged by the USBF
The interests served are the pros collecting two paychecks and the event is bigger.
Outraged by the USBF
When the discussion originally came up my reaction was like George, "How can you drop off a team qualified to play in a WC." It would be unthinkable for me. I play for the love of the game and struggle to find amateurs willing to show up and play the ...
Outraged by the USBF

I think that many bridge players, even very good bridge players, have not dedicated their lives to a game. They don't play 30 or 40 tournaments a year and they have something called a "life". These players do not play for pay. They play for the love of the ...
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
Ray, That is reality and unavoidable for most rare bids. It is also reality for many pairs using relays because the responses are usually artificial. The solution can't provide and UI because partner that things slow down under these circumstances. It happens all day every day. At some point ...
