Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
I am surprised that people are as interested in Butlers as they are. Over the 3 day Swiss in the transnationals I had a good Butler and was congratulated for it by a world class player. Then I considered two things: 1. The player who congratulated me was playing veey ...
Strategy at Swiss Teams (20VP scale) vs. IMP Pairs?
Not an expert by any stretch but I understand a bit about game theory etc... One difference in scoring, which could lead to differences in strategy, is that imps in the middle of the scale are worth more VPs than imps at the edge of the scale. In particular if ...
Convention Chart Revisions
I am assuming that what people are used to will evolve after these charts get released. It seems wrong that methods that will be allowed in club games, sectionals and side games at regionals will not be allowed in GNT/NAP lower flights. I could easily make the argument that ...
Convention Chart Revisions
First, kudos to everyone who worked on this for a much improved chart, and for an open process. While I like a lot of the progress that has been made, I was taken aback by some of the proposed usage, in particular in limited national events. The biggest surprises I ...
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Yu, I agree, and would venture my own opionion that if you looked at the the standard deviation in IMP outcome of each board in a big event, it would *shock* me if the variation from board to board was consistent with each board having the same inherent variability. I ...
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
"The onw who believes in PRC"?
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Yu, As an aside, I find it much easier to discuss hands with band records - but I have also realized that at the table, when I am visualizing a hand, even when I have it exactly I miss the correct play a lot more than when I have a hand ...

Will Watson has done this for the unit Swiss in unit 503 for quite some time and I really like it. It was nice in Lyon at the transnationals too, but that's a bit of a schlep :)
ATB : Expensive Misdefense
Ok, thanks. On the play it looks like 3442, but on the auction that is pretty out there. So I think S probably could work out to go up with the A. I still blame N, but now 70/30 vs having been closer to 90/10.
ATB : Expensive Misdefense
At first I mostly blamed S, but thinking a little more I blame N. First I thought that S should win the club at trick 3, but when N didn't lead the club, I think the 3442 hand Steve gave makes more sense than a stiff club.
