about me

I'm a freelance capitalist, semi-retired software engineer, and sometime professional bridge player. I spend summers in Florida and winters on the Colorado ski slopes. My other interests include the laws of bridge, economics, swing dancing, global warming (I'm a skeptic), and Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. Edgar Kaplan is my all time bridge hero.

Country
United States of America

Memories of Margie
Typo corrected - Tuesday, July 31 is the date. Thanks, Debbie!
Memories of Margie
Glenn wrote to tell me that a memorial service for Margie will be held on Tuesday evening July 31 at the Summer NABC in Atlanta.
Mixed USBC Conditions of Contest Discussion
To be clear, I meant the general format. We could use some of the same formats with shorter match lengths.
Mixed USBC Conditions of Contest Discussion
I like that idea, David. We don't do it in the Open because we have drop-ins. That won't be a factor in the Mixed.
Mixed USBC Conditions of Contest Discussion
Why not just use the scheme for the Open? It typically draws more entries, but it has (or used to have) plans for smaller entry sizes as well.
Analysis and Visualization - 54th EBTC
Surely you are correct, Julian, though it might not make much difference in practice. Someone make the same point in the original thread.
Analysis and Visualization - 54th EBTC
You mean in the "Butler Overview" pane, correct? I see a Team filter but no Pair filter. Are they one and the same? I found the Sort icon and pressed it. The pairs are sorted by relative Butler but it's tricky to tell because the display in one line ...
Analysis and Visualization - 54th EBTC
It would! Also the ACBL and USBF, and NBOs around the world. For that matter, the online bridge DBs could be treasure troves too.
Analysis and Visualization - 54th EBTC
Is there a way to view a list of the Relative Butlers for all pairs, ideally including full pair names and countries and sorted from highest to lowest? This would correspond to the Butler presentation on the EBL site but for Relative Butlers instead of raw Butlers.
Analysis and Visualization - 54th EBTC
Richard Pavlicek has compiled some excellent statistics here: http://rpbridge.net/rpme.htm They're well worth a look. He's not updated them in a few years, in part because he was disappointed that the ACBL and USBF moved to 15-board sets for their major KO events.
