Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What now?
Thanks for the reply. This morning I thought about how things have changed since the computerization of the scoring. Back before computers were there to quickly calculate scores, with a sitout often board and pair results had to be adjusted (known as factoring), directors would go out of their way ...
What now?
Jim what was your 14 table web for as boards played? 14 tables with 26 boards (13 rounds) or 27 (3 board rounds)? Maybe more information is needed. If 27 (9 3 board rounds) and you could not restart as Anthony suggested why not keep the sit out and possibly ...
Handicap scores to increase open game players attendance.
Ping and Randy. - Thanks for your recommendations. I have taken some effort to do some trials against your suggestions. Ping - NLM are separate events of 3 - 7 tables. Ping and Randy - I'm having a problem knowing how to implement a past history (ACBL score or TCG) handicap approach for ...
Handicap scores to increase open game players attendance.
To make sure I understand. You are placing 40% in the acbl database.
Handicap scores to increase open game players attendance.
This looked valuable HOWEVER Just checked my club's TCG (The Common Game) handicaps. It does not seem to include much of a set of handicaps for the club's lower ranking games (NLM and 0-300), even though the club has been running the common game for these lower games ...
ACBL's Flawed Masterpoint Formulas
Steve - if you make the 80% against a weak field and the 55% the top players around. Why is the 80% worth more? The strength of field concept discussed often in this article needs to be considered.
ACBL's Flawed Masterpoint Formulas
Kevin - thanks for the positive on the downtown Regionals. I was on the Unit board when we changed to the airport . The board wanted to continue downtown. Simply put the hotels did not want our business. And the airport would only take us if we made a long term contract ...
Mentor program morphs to Coaching program
Over a year from last reply. Our twice a month mentoring game is still the largest night game. 11 to 15 tables vs typical 4 - 6 tables. Again this is not a typical Non life master event. The rules are rather simple - a pair for the night must have one ...
Can someone suggest how to run a team game with six pairs?
This is discussed in ACBL's Swiss team manual. It goes a step further and makes each cycle a separate match thus their are 4 six board matches. This is useful in masterpoint games (especially in October when gold points are available) since each team has a greater chance of ...
LBIAD
Jeff I really feel your approach is appropriate to get good players. Our club's goal was to get more Club players. The trick in EZbridge is that the weekly content over the 35 weeks are presentations not lessons. If they don't get it then they still get over ...
