Playing up in KO's - what am I missing?
To respond to the point that players wouldn't like a ranking system -- We already have one -- the Colorado Springs Bridge Power Ratings are available for anyone who wishes to look up ratings. I am not saying that it is perfect, but it is a ranking system and it is ...
Playing up in KO's - what am I missing?
It would be much better to use the Colorado Springs power rating system for bracketing than using the current system of basing brackets on total MPs.

Lanzarotti Readmitted and the ACBL?
So, I just watched the video to which Donald M. posted a link. It sounds like there will be a recommended sentence of 10 years' suspension for collusive cheaters, plus not allowing them to play any more as partners. Expulsion for the second offense. One year (?!) for using information deliberately ...
Lanzarotti Readmitted and the ACBL?
