Question for Accountants (of benefit to Pros)
I think this is pretty much the answer. You get nothing in return for a gift. You are clearly getting something for this, so it isn't a gift, it's wages.
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
My Executive Summary: Some poorly designed rules were stretched. Those whose rules were stretched are considering seriously overreacting by creating onerous new rules to make sure nobody does anything new ever again. ___ The obvious answer to this seems to be to fix the poorly designed rules, then move on ...
Is this too big a position?
If partner is known to be aggressive, and didn't find an opening with his probable 10HCP, then I'd doubt he's the one with extra spade length, giving it to the opponents. It is a position, but I'd pass too.
good ruling?
By barred, did you mean, you were so fed up with the game you walked across the street to have a beer? Because that seems about right here.
Rating Study from ACBL Tournaments

A Mentoring Program with a Twist
I still remember my first such event in NYC some decades ago when I only had a few masterpoints. It was awesome, and I still have the trophy (it was a pairs event then)! Glad to hear you're still doing it. It certainly inspired me as a new player.
An interesting message on my answering machine
The ACBL is mostly a volunteer organization. If you don't like what they're doing, volunteer and help change it. I totally get being frustrated. Many of us are. But the only way to make your opinion count is to participate. I know a number of the folks in ...
Lost in Translation?
Oh please. I've thrown away a lot of books in my life. It's pretty rich when guys lecture women on how they should just 'suck it up' and learn from it. Like women haven't been dealing with this kind of rapey language all their lives. "conquered by ...
