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

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Poor pair game movements
Ed in response. No I know you are an experienced director and would expect that you might have Tim Hill or others web readily available on your acblscore machine. And as such, you are one that I thought without some thought might actually think you could create one quickly. I ...
Poor pair game movements
My point exactly and the reason for the challenge. I stated they are not ACBLscore standard movements - The web at 9 tables is available and could be curtailed. Ed I read your "It takes a little effort to add movements to ACBLScore" to imply that it could be done quickly ...
Poor pair game movements
Ed you missed the point. This was a 299er game. The goal in these games tend to be - play about 24 boards at max. - schmooze the players of the enjoyment of bridge A technically perfect tournament movement is not a high priority. I would bet if 11 and 1/2 ...
My "Big Idea" for Bridge
David, George is great with others, but can still do it alone.
Big Ideas
Barbara, I really like your comments. I'm a NLM director and teacher, yet I come to a different solution. My wife directs and teaches to NLM too and would disagree. But here are my suggestions. 1) Make it easy to win some points, but drastically reduce the top masterpoint ...
Poor pair game movements
Thanks for the reply. And for an Open game I would agree with your choices. I will always agree about the 24 board movement with a sit out in general is not desirable. Shucks 12 table games without a sitout aren't great. Some comments - Had a NLM sectional 0-500 ...
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Somehow lost previous comment due to a link connection at club send again. Just an update. After the above NLM weekend, continued today with a 299er game. Handrecords - from the common game. Bridgmate for 4 table Swiss? (maybe more of a RR) - used MARs. No major problems, thanks Mich for ...
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Nick, I think you provide two options, correct? 1. Computed IMPs (bridgemates used) players verify against displayed result on projected, monitor, or other. 2. Team entered results at director desk directly into your software, when no bridgemates.
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
As you know bridgemates provide no good way to show the match results in IMPs, at least at this time. You resolve this with a projected (or large TV screen) result screen.. We have this option available too. But we don't take it as a club with our non-Open ...
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Kevin - thanks for the list, used most of them the last two days. We use Dealer 4 so dealer 4 software replaces your BOS. No commongame so get to remove TCG merge but did respond to commongame we didn't play a common game. Our sitout actually sat out so ...
