Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
So you want to be a Vugraph operator
LIN files are text files; but I agree the format is non-trivial to edit. For the example I cited, here are the relevant snippets: vg|A 2017 Spingold QF,Segment 2 of 4,I,16,30,Mittelman NPC,27,Gupta,42| rs|3CW+1,1NE+2,6HE-1,4HE+1,1NW ...
ACBL Cell Phone Policies & Penalties
I organized a meeting at the last Washington NABC where I invited some friends that used to work at TLAs. ACBL provided a room. USBF/EBL/WBF were all there. The topic was cheating in bridge. We discussed how you would do it; and the countermeasures. Some changes were then ...
So you want to be a Vugraph operator
Let me give you an example, 2017 Spingold QF. http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?bbo=y&linurl=http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/vugraph_linfetch.php?id=52504 Board 22. Open room.

ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
One of the things that ACBLscore+ (now Bridgescore+) does is to provide data. Lots of it. Including standard of play in ACBL events. Domestic attendance at NABCs. etc. All trivially because the data is in a SQL database.
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
I think you mean Hamman & Co. (Ed has edited this comment. I added this edit. Previously Ed had referred to AnotherLastName & Co. by mistake)
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
@Richard. ACBL has already done that at some NABCs. It was a 1-2 hour long social interaction. The kids weren't too impressed. (I attended one as I had a kid of said age, though mine didn't speak).
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
There may be a difference between public and private schools. I taught bridge for 3-4 years at a (private) school to 8-11 year olds. I am not licensed. I help out at my kids robotics class in a (public) school. I am still not licensed. In this case, there is ...
