GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Hi Ted, I like the format that you describe. However, it seems to me that more events are switching to the system where the losing semi-finalists are expected to play each other in the evening of the second day (of a two-day bracketed K/O event). I don't know ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I wonder whether the complaints about the lack of MP awards for 4th place, don't perhaps have more to do with psychological factors than points. It's tough to be in the position of advancing in an important event, then being eliminated in the semi-finals and having to play ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Introducing a clearly inferior format that decreases the chances of the best team on the day winning because the 4th place team complained last year about not getting MPs? This indicates distorted priorities.
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
It could be true both that the person in charge of drafting the C of C provided 2 copies to the director in charge, and that members of one team asked several times for the C of C and were neither provided them nor given a copy to borrow. Those ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I know that there's a certain amount of repetition here. But -- can we agree that bridge players care about who wins any given event? And, that bridge players especially care about who wins an important event? And, that these Conditions of Contest were highly unusual (leaving aside the fact ...
Outraged by the USBF
I agree, Peg, that of course there is no "bright line." The book and film "Still Alice" is another tough example of early dementia. The minimum age for Seniors can only be a proxy, which will be imperfect. After more reflection, I think that 65 or 66 is perhaps okay ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Jim F, In the GNTs here, Bill Cole works very hard as a volunteer running them, and puts in many hours. He was my teammate in Orlando in the World Mixed Teams, and mentioned that it was very different being able to focus solely on bridge, rather than doing a ...
Outraged by the USBF
There is a comment that only three players were going to be available after Set 4. I don't know whether that was always the case or not (that not all of the players would be available throughout the whole event). Obviously, someone could post here and clarify that. There ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I know that nothing is ever run like this in District 6. I do realize that we are very lucky.
Outraged by the USBF
It's not only the players, directors, vugraph operators and kibitzers who have opinions about this. I am not in one of those categories, yet I have an an opinion (surprise!). If members of a team know that they will not be able to field a team right through an ...
