ACBL Special Announcement
In D4 regionals, we have events called Dupli-Swiss Teams. All of the boards played are the same. We share boards between tables to minimize the number of sets of boards required. It is not really that difficult to achieve. And while there are security issues, they are minimal if you ...

It really doesn't matter. And it hasn't mattered in a long time. I have posted about this before. But once more, with feeling. Many years ago, well before the advent of Gold Rush games, there was an event at the Nationals (I said it was many years ago ...
