Director Ruling
East is a client and West is a pro. The Pro has the client playing transfers and Kick-back and what else? What could possibly go wrong? I think it is time for players to actually be accountable for the conventions they play. An example from Vegas in a National Swiss ...
Mindless revoke
The rules are you should call the Director. Personally, I probably would not but I understand you have to protect the field. This reminds me of something that happened many years ago at a National pairs event. I was playing against Mike Levinson who was legally blind and he revoked ...
A better rating system
Many years ago the Twin Cities tried the Stegman report. It was a complete disaster because no one wanted to look bad on the report so players only played with others who could get the job done.
RIP Harold Lilie
Sadly, I believe these announcements will become more frequent. Bridge as we knew it is disappearing. At least we were here to enjoy it when bridge was fun and the people we met were great.
Bermuda Bowl inter alia (perfectly open thread, as far I'm concerned)
Meckstroth's low club to the Queen in 3NT with dummy holding Q108xx and declarer holding two small was outstanding! LHO had made a T/O double. He is one of the fastest players on the planet(Maybe the fastest) and he went into the tank for a very long ...
Every Time I Think Things Might Improve, They get Worse!

Every Time I Think Things Might Improve, They get Worse!
The ACBL does have an impact on Regionals. If they want to change your date you have no choice. That happened to the Nebraska Regional for the worst. Also, when they asked the ACBL to send out computer blasts they said no to all required. They would only send to ...
Every Time I Think Things Might Improve, They get Worse!
Bridge in the mid west is dying off. More players move, stop playing, and die off. Having more Regionals is insane. An additional point is the people in Nebraska work hard and the others do not. The other Regionals draw around 500 tables because there are too many and the ...
Every Time I Think Things Might Improve, They get Worse!
I am not complaining about the eliminated Sectional. The Quad-cities did the right thing. That is the point, The District did not!
Bridge is getting harder to play
"What we have here is failure to communicate." I know, it is too easy.
