Have many, but having our team Kibitzed by 3 players I knew were on the top 500 list, wondering who our opponents must be.

ACBL Ranking
Ruby Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What's "Normal"?
In most ACBL teaching manuals today Doubler or Overcaller depending on call. Modern definition for partner of doubler or overcaller is advancer, rather than doubler's or overcaller's responder or partner. Although I like the intruder concept, might use it in my next class. I don't know which ...
What's "Normal"?
Gary I agree here at least in teaching Standard American at our club. And its on the convention card and we discuss with our students this is something that should be marked. Most of the of them do as you do make forcing as you do to make it the ...
Poor pair game movements
Bud your list essentially matches our clubs except since we have the mats we use 3/4 Howell movements rather than hesitation. Essentially equivalent but we have more arrow switches which occasionally do cause edmove corrections. I guess our directors myself included are lazy, we seldom use rover pairs, mostly ...
Which Movement Do You Prefer with 7 Tables?
Dan, I do not use this movement mostly since most pairs play only 22 boards. So we default to the 3/4 Howell.
The Difficulty of Playing Well Against Palookas
Robert do you think your opponents were enjoying the match any more than you were?
Which Movement Do You Prefer with 7 Tables?
Ed I agree with your comment. Yet, so many of our games are upgraded - Charity, Fund games, NAP, STAC, Club Championships, Once a year Membership games - general upgraded games draw little. A celebration or party brings players; not championships at our club. Edit of original post. {I didn't include ...
Which Movement Do You Prefer with 7 Tables?
We need multiple North/South pairs so 7 table 3/4 Howell with 6.5 tables; Full 7 tables Mitchell - Standard Mitchell if championship event (overalls) - Scrambled Mitchell (arrow switch) if no upgraded championship awards available. Scrambled Mitchell provides for more ACBL masterpoints and single winner for jackpot. Clients like ...
Poor pair game movements
John and others. Don't see it in this article. Doc and acblscore movements for web http://bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwoj/bw.cgi?club=westwood&pid=display_page5 Edit - Sorry I see Feb 27 ref to the doc part of this article.
Board of Governors - Live video stream
Thanks, was just about to ask if the broadcast was going to exist.
Is playing the same boards in a pairs event important?
Unless I missed it Tim Hill has documented and provided acb lscore movement files. URL is http://bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwoj/bw.cgi?club=westwood&pid=display_page5
