National Champions in Limited Events: Fair or Foul?
I think Cory's point is a good one, and some clarification would be helpful from ACBL. In particular, the GNT would presumably be considered a flighted event (even if it is currently possible to play in more than one flight at the district level), as might the Blue Ribbon ...
National Champions in Limited Events: Fair or Foul?
The damage to players in your position appears to be an unintended consequence of a policy change that was not fully thought through. It is odd that before the change a World Championship was only thought to be worth 100+ masterpoints, and now suddenly it is equivalent to 10,000 ...
National Champions in Limited Events: Fair or Foul?
The motion passed as above seems to apply to all ACBL-sanctioned events, not only including regionals, but also club games. There seems to have been very little discussion in advance - I alerted one of my partners who is affected, who was also unaware. The one silver lining is that you ...

Perspective of a Playing Sponsor: I Came to Play
On the substance, many have commented better than I could. I was broadly aware of the dilemmas you faced. In fact, knowing you planned to play the third quarter on Friday I even asked a work colleague what he would do in your circumstances. But I wasn't aware of ...
Reporting an Unethical Incident
I think the suggestion is that Law 73 B1 was breached.
MANFIELD Wins Mixed Teams
I have to say I thought that was really gutsy. I wondered what you would do in that third stanza given the state of the match and the stakes at play. As it was you played one more stanza than your counterpart in each of the last three matches. Really ...
To Beer or Not to Beer?
Do the implications of an early discard of the 7D need to be disclosed in response to questions on carding?
