Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Emerald Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
18 bids in a row
I've had 7, with both sides bidding 1C(16+)-1D(majors or minors)-1H(5-7 any shape)-1S(Pass/Correct); 1NT(16-18)-2C-(minor)-2D(transfer) after which things broke down.
ACBL Live über alles
I have run swisses with all results in a BAM section in ACBLScore. To post to ACBL Live you must delete all sections other than the swiss in ACBLScore, and you cannot upload BWS file. (You cannot also include a pairs game, although you can have more than one Swiss ...
Half tables
The double weave movements are great for the players. There is no relay. East-West pairs are not following the same pair all day, so there are fewer complaints about following slow pairs. If you cannot move because of slow play then noone will want your seat because you are trading ...
considerably worse than trivial
I've seen 5 a couple times. I picked up 6 with 6511 distribution and only even cards (something like QT8642 QT642 Q Q, I did have 4 queens)
considerably worse than trivial
I held a Gwodzinsky and managed to be dummy. I laid out one at a time from A down to 2. I was told it would be quicker if I sorted my hand.
for movement wonks only
I assumed it is what David Hassal said below. There was a bye stand after 3 and highest board set was for table 7 which got eliminated. 1-3 4-6 7-9 13-15 16-18 19-21.
for movement wonks only
I am certain there are many 3/4 howells with 4 stationary pairs. For example 1,3,4,6 stationary, Moving pairs go 1EW 2EW 3EW 4EW 5EW 2NS 5NS 6EW. I have not looked at balance in any way.
NABC Appeal
With proper information North would not have clubs because he would know that 2 showed spades and clubs when he bid 2NT.
Should the place of VPs in KO events be reconsidered?
0-3 IMP 10-10 9-14 IMP 12-8 15-21 IMP 13-7
Should the place of VPs in KO events be reconsidered?
I cannot believe there existed VP scale where +3 and +12 is worse than +17 and -3. Certain the WBF scale doesnt work that way and what was used for other flights in D22 doesn't appear to work that way.
