We have a better product than the ACBL. Games when we want. With players we know.

Newer players want masterpoints. Veterans could g-a-f-f.

Here is another advantage to online play:

Every pair is stationary.

IRL directors will get it.

12 tables, 13 rounds (BBO dumped a table at the last moment when a pair was not logged in to start the tournament). If we keep this up, ACBL can not avoid giving us MasterPoints for these events.

You needed to ask 4 years ago. Which I did by accident. But that accident,and a ton of hard, hard work and we have a pretty decent product now.

There is a way right now. That leaves control in the hands of local clubs and directors. If that is what anybody wants.

If they want black points . . . well someone holds a monopoly on those.

Using flash in the face of a massive meltdown at BBO right at 330 eastern (1230 pacific) when our tournament started. Have to admit, the flash version seems much more user friendly and . . . well better.

“I just want to learn.” Oh, and pure coincidence that I hold AK of the 1 and only suit I am asking about.

I am not enforcing alert procedures. This week. They have been instructed on self-alerting. Some of them are barely past alerting.

Seriously. Points is not what they are buying. That people care about them is what they are buying.

But that's pretty damn hard to fake or to scale.

I have people interrupting my real work to demand that I tell them how to pay me.

Have to admit an utter failure trying to run a team game tonight. Players didn't understand the software. I wasn't much better. Software was laggy.

All in all . . . very frustrating.

You can't really set up 1 team game. Have to set up . . . in my case with 6 tables . . . three separate matches each round. Every match collapses if all 8 players do not accept within time frame. etc.

Don't try this at home folks.

I am not selling masterpoints. that's the key. I am selling . . . me and the club . . . the care and concern that players get from me . . . online or off.

Willing to compete with anyone. Anywhere on that basis.

Me Jim? Our offering (BARRINGTON, BHBC) is limited to club players or those, such as yourself, that I know and who have visited at least occasionally. Perhaps you are in the club's mailing list. I am not managing that side of things (mercifully).

We are running our BARRINGTON game at 12:30 Pacific today. As we have when BBO could stand it every day this week. BARRINGTON players, playing BARRINGTON players.

I have two other games daily.
