Bridge Information

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.
Bridge Accomplishments
Obtaining a silver ribbon with essentially brand new duplicate players in NABC Senior Swiss Teams; a few years later they realized the importance of the 11 Gold points they had won. Awarded Texas Star by District 16 for Bridge Contribution.

I always thought it was a club
Toronto NABC Follow-up
David - I think the handling of across the field matchpointing in NABC regional events is based on the practices of the region holding the NABC. I've seen every format used in NABCs: - Within the section only matchpointing - Across the sections * as if all N/S were one field * as ...
What's the vulnerability? Who's the dealer?
Technology meets reality. Bridgepad software for Swiss has no good way to adjust the boards used. And all the devices (bridgepads and bridgmates) have the Vul and Dealer hardcoded to the expected board number. The director at least gave you a set with numbers 1 to 6 on it so ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
MICH. I think it tends to be more like. I'm running (tournament or club) events. My Open game is OK but I have no non-life masters. Let's have a NLM events. My older players are stopping play. Let's add Senior events. and so on. Max as one ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
Don't we have a basic Platinum Rush Pairs now in the 10K events?
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
And there were bowling centers everywhere and empty tennis courts were hard.to find.. And most of a bridge convention card was rather empty; almost everyone was playing Goren. I don't ever remember an alert. You could read a short Goren book or 5 weeks to winning bridge and ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
Point taken, but note ribbons can only be won NABC or Regional (or equivalent GNT/NAP regional like) tournament events. They reflect top winners of the event rather than lower level positions. So they do reflect some skill beyond masterpoint collecting. Thus if a low level KO (<750) has someone ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
Please state when people are no longer "new to the game".
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
Please see the letter to the editor Attendance blues, August 2017, ACBL Bulletin. I tend to agree with the suggestion that blue ribbon (and also red/silver ribbon) qualifications should be considered in KOs and possibly other events stratification/bracketing rather than just masterpoints. Since the ribbons represent overall pairs ...
ACBL Regional Tournament Attendance/Cost Issue
There is a capability now to play in some Regionals by BBO at clubs in cooperation with "The Common Game". I have not made up my mind if this helps the club or the regional. And not sure if it helps the player(s) either. Time will tell. Club owners ...
