Fairmont Royal York is All Smoke and Mirrors
At the Hyatt they basically said while I was checking in that they are giving people who booked through the ACBL the worst rooms they have and suggested booking directly with hotel in future (at a higher rate). We moved once, but still have an uncomfortable broom closet (but at ...
What will be the winning score of the NABC Individual ?
I'll take the under on 85. What would you like to wager?
What will be the winning score of the NABC Individual ?
I remember there was an old BBO (?) thread where Justin Lall tried to see if he could average over 70% over a large number of ACBL robot games and came up just a little short. Since this tournament is fewer boards, but will likely be a stronger field, I'll ...
What will be the winning score of the NABC Individual ?
Bridge is a game of skill though. Not everyone's normal distribution is centered at 50%.

Reading all the strong objections to this tournament is pretty frustrating. In no particular order 1. If you think it is a stupid idea, then don't enter the tournament. If no one enters then it will go away soon enough 2. Do you really think the existence of a ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A52 3 KT743 7542

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AQ93 QT --- AKJT963
For the doublers, what is your plan over 4 and 4 respectively from partner? Ignoring what is theoretically best in a partnership with strong agreements, I was unsure if partner would misinterpret if I pulled 4 to 5.
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Not that I support it (or think it would be easy to enforce), but the idea of not allowing players to get paid to play in a 'grassroots' event makes more sense to me than just forbidding good players.
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Maybe you won't qualify for GNTs, but definitely would prefer to live in a 'strong' district than a 'weak' one. Currently live in NYC (impression is that it is a fairly strong district) and it is very nice to regularly get to play against very strong players even in ...
