Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
OMG! $70 **PER TABLE** Luxury Tax
For me, the only reason to attend a National is to play Platinum point events. Otherwise I might as well drive to a regional. $60/day seems excessive -- let's give students and newcomers a discount and otherwise all card fees should be about the same. Charging extra for events ...
OMG! $70 **PER TABLE** Luxury Tax
Jan, with the current ACBL demographics I would be amazed to know that any NABCs will be held in 2048.
The Hand That Changed The World (of Claims)
Are you suggesting that claiming on a proven squeeze is not (or should not be) allowed?
The Hand That Changed The World (of Claims)
I prefer to follow Kantar's suggestion: claim before you make a mistake.
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
Ed, I can fill out a card once online and print it on my monochrome laser printer in a few seconds. Dragging out pink and blue highlighters is truly a PITA and seems to benefit no one since it merely duplicates information readily available on the blank CCs available at ...
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
My suggestion is that the ACBL not require colored cards. So far no one has given any reason why it's important that one's opponent's cards have any coloring. It's a PITA to highlight them.
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
The color coding on the preprinted card is a possibly useful reminder TO THE PAIR FILLING OUT THE CARD. In this discussion no one has indicated any time when the color-coding on their opponents card was useful to them.
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
Ed, the color coding is a useful reminder of the ACBL required announcements/alerts to the pair filling out a blank convention card. I don't see how the of color coding on my opponents card is helpful to me. Suppose the auction goes "1NT P 2H (no announcement)" ? Now ...
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
Sorry if I wasn't clear. Color-coding the provided blank convention cards makes perfect sense. It's idiotic that if I print them for my partnership on a monochrome printer then I am required to highlight them in blue and red. The coloring is a reminder to the person filling ...
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
Can we please get rid of this idiotic coloring requirement? The color coding is a reminder to the pair filling out the convention card and is non-material to their opponents.
