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.
Another Scoring Error
Sorry Ed that you had such a bad experience. You can always call the director and they can display your previous result. There was a chance that you also had the show scores option on and the director would have assisted you in how to use the feature to have ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Funding Question: In May the clubs have Grass Root Fund games and some districts still have GNT qualifiers in club and Units with extra dollars going to the ACBL, where are those extra dollars being used?
Another Scoring Error
ACBLscore comment. Aviv we tend to support a change within a week. But at month end we often state make sure your scores are correct since we will not correct them after the monthly reports are run". We get a lot of requests for the pairs summary reports those nights ...
Another Scoring Error
Side comment here: Bridgemate control program now supports score checking. Two options exist and both can be used to help spot errors. 1) Same score reported in two different directions and results are similar. For example 2 Hearts played both ways and both making 4. 2) Hand records are imported ...
Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
Ditto - one of the if not the BEST NABCs I've attended. Played in the regional events only. Overall the friendliest events ever. Only problem was when leaving Sunday, the Sheridan goofed up our bellhop request - took over an hour to get bellhop to room. On the plus side with ...
Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
In our experience - a sectional or regional can change the lower strat to make a valid overall field. Officially to do so the strat section of the tournament flyer should state "Strats may change at the director's discretion" I think the statement is implied at the NABCs. Post results ...
They did it to me again
Craig, Martin in agreement and to Barry: Being one of the terrible (weaker) players in club open games, in my opinion Barry you may have already misplayed this hand against us. With diamond AQJxx plus another honor card you would have heard a 2 diamond overcall with most weaker players ...
Mentor game - Ideas. Call for ideas.
Very true Steve. Please note to all actual bridge is not all that occurs in these games. It is important that the mentor takes the time to introduce their partner to other open players. Some mentoring instructions at one site (I think it was Houston) said the role of the ...
Mentor game - Ideas. Call for ideas.
Jeff in our case the assigned expert picked the hands from the session he found interesting. Again the real value came when he discussed bidding sequences or defensive play from many levels. But looking at travelers he might find a team that found a game or slam no one else ...
Mentor game - Ideas. Call for ideas.
Jeff, we have had this event a couple of times, well attended and I'm wondering why we haven't done it in the past year or so. Over 70% of the players stayed after the event. In our case the expert is one of the top amatures in the ...
