Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is there something better than BBO?

It is not EBL-only - US, Australia and a few South Americda and Far Eastern countries played in it before.
Improving the Seeding Process
Thanks Brian - the way you used looks fair, but it would be nice to put a note about this on the document (at least for the future events), because current version misrepresents what you do:)
Improving the Seeding Process
Hey Brian, I was the author of one of the articles about the seedings in Vandy. I presented the following scenario: "X is a player who collected 100 SP in ACBL events, and he did not play with a cheating pair, so he automatically has 50SP for Vandy since it ...
