Toronto NABC Follow-up
For Toronto the drop in didn't actually displace anyone: only because the drop ins didn't qualify for day 3 and they strictly augmented the day 2 field. If they had qualified for day 3, they would have been displacing someone.
Toronto NABC Follow-up
Ok, but in the context of NABC it makes sense to consider the people attending, where the NABC is decidedly non-trivial. I agree everything should be looked at, but a post focused on NABC+ doesn't seem problematic to me if it doesn't also include regionals, clubs, online, and ...
Toronto NABC Follow-up
I think this feeling about person is not accurate here when this is an officially recognized account that posts ACBL information and when this particular post was in fact stated to be "by Bahar Gidwani, ACBL CEO" which should be more than enough IMHO.
Bermuda Bowl Q&A
I like your videos and enjoyed seeing you (and you and Justin) make your road to the Bowl videos. Please keep it up! Some questions: How accurate, if at all, do you think the Butler for ranking pairs is (I.e., ...
Toronto NABC Follow-up
I think it is probably closer to 20%, maybe even 25%, of the players at a typical NABC who play at least one open NABC+ event. There were 5324 players than earn MP in Toronto. By my count there were 747 who played day one of the Roth Swiss + 4 ...
Toronto NABC Follow-up
From the email on which I received it I think this message was focused on NABC+ events. I don't know that this means that is the only place that the ACBL is focusing, or if it is the only place there were concerns/complaints/issues. It isn't covered ...
Toronto NABC Follow-up
Sorry if I jumped this post by starting the other thread. I had waited 2 days from when I received the email message to see if anyone had posted it here, but when I hadn't seen it, wanted to make sure it was shared with others. As I said ...
Post-Toronto NABC: "A Note from the ACBL CEO"
Pretty much every comment I heard was positive (I heard multiple times the comment "could we have nationals here every year?"). I did hear more from NABC+ types, but still think this was representative. The hotel staff at the ICC were good, the playing space was a good one with ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: K T9 --- AKJT987542
Was there a follow up poll to this? I joined the consensus 5 voters but I was very tempted to start with pass and then later bid clubs over the opponents bids until they double me hoping that this lets them stop earlier and/or has them use science ...
Last Board Dbl Digit Slam Swings in 21 of 33 Matches in Lyons
You also have 1/3 of the 4-2 spade breaks (Tx with someone). And a stiff T of spades would give you an extra spade trick which might make diamonds easier since you only need 3 tricks. So I think 7nt is ~95% on non-club lead and like ~55% on ...
