Playing up in KO's - what am I missing?
We just need to stop bracketing by masterpoints and use a rating like the UK does. One of the "big ideas" that our last CEO Bihar Gidwani had planned to finally get a rating system in place. Unfortunately we lost him and are now awaiting the strategic plan from our ...
Bot Programming Perhaps Last Time
I would assume bbo will scrap gib and replace it with funbridge's stronger and regularly-updated bots. It will be nice to finally have bbo bots that play a wide range of conventions and defensive signals.
Please settle a bet!
At imps no need to take a random stab at the 3-level to save 1-2 imps...x is penalty (and sometimes wins a telephone #). At MPs 200+ is gold and if they make it once in a while c'est la vie...x is penalty.

Bridge Cheating Scandal - A New Cheat

"Playing Up" - An open letter to Jay Whipple
I LOVE playing against my peers as well. Unfortunately a bracketed RR format makes this impossible.
Adjusted Master Points
Yes, there is already a functional system in place. The ACBL just needs to adopt it.
