USBF To Hold U31 Trials for 2020 WYBTC
I sympathize with the USBF on this and think they have made a reasonable decision. One cannot just fund teams for every event somebody thinks of. This seems to be a silly event to me, but if someone wants to provide their own funds to attend, that is fine. And ...
USBF To Hold U31 Trials for 2020 WYBTC
Technically, it is males in the 31 -- 59 (or whatever it is now) range that have the worst deal in this since they are the ones that are only eligible for one event. Edit: Sorry, two if you count mixed. But open and mixed are equally open to all groups ...
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law

Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
There was a technical problem with the no-refund policy at least at the Las Vegas NABC. There were times that one could not book ten consecutive days of the same kind of room but could do three of one kind, then three of another, and then four of the first ...
Mass ACBL E-Mails
Why should we be getting e-mails about tournaments? All tournament goers should know where the information about tournaments is available on-line --- if one wants to play a tournament just go the web site. (I mean the ACBL web page which should then link to a page for the particular tournament ...
My Orlando Regional, ACBL masterpoints, and big players make big bids
The way that the ACBL has set up master points guarantees that the total number of master points won by the teams that enter the top bracket of the knockout is much larger than the expected number that they would win if the games were one day games open to ...
