about me

I love our game. I'm more interested in improving than in playing, so I study daily. I became a life master back when that was a high achievement (before strats, before MP inflation). I much prefer playing "up" to "playing down," which to me is a totally different game and not much fun. I'd sure like to find an equal and somewhat steady partner here in south Texas, but prospects aren't that favorable. That causes me pain and sends me to the robots for practice. I most enjoy the more difficult and more subtle parts of our game.

There you go again, expecting folks in Horn Lake to actually function. I suppose next, you'll be thinking how they could maybe do something to get a computer to score tournament games fast and right.

Ira, Now that you finally understand, I'm ready for our game. Call me!
What is fair.
I can't believe I read this entire thread.
Can we save our game?
Oh, they can enter. I'll welcome their participation, too. And yours.
Can we save our game?
My prescription is to give the game back to the rank and file from whom it's been taken, or taken over. One way to accomplish that is to limit the combined masterpoint holding of teams entering team events. This way, you prevent groups of four or more professionals from ...
Can we save our game?
That may or it may not be true, but it's mostly irrelevant to the OP issue of whether our troubled game can be saved, in my view.
Blue Over Red Boards
I don't care.
Outraged by the USBF
I'm with you. Maybe get a kitchen table game going, too.
The value of videos
If there are naked girls running around the table that Im not seeing it, then this definitely provokes me to favor cameras around every bridge table.
