about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

Country
United States of America

Crunch Time
Tom, I think that's the entire point. If the organizers can't guarantee a fair event, they should feel the hurt.
Crunch Time
This seems like the right approach to me. The mere [i]possibility[/i] of these players' entering the event is sufficient to boycott. The bridge organizations need to take a stand. Players need to make plans months in advance; we can't wait to see a final entrants list. And ...
Priorities for the WBF?
No changing of conditions of contests in world championships after the event starts!
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
Mostly the place.
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
People are finally realizing that Gatlinburg sucks.
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
Michael's point above brings up another issue: ACBL revenue. If we start from the premise that the number of qualifiers from day 1 will not be affected -- that drop-in pairs will be extra pairs in day 2 -- the drop-ins' entries constitute additional revenue for the ACBL. Some of these ...
Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
In New England, we solved this issue by adding a masterpoint limit for eligibility for the junior discount. (This was basically a Grossack issue.) I think we made it Life Master. This wasn't an issue even for most kids with over 500 points, as they tend not to have ...
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
It looks to me like this is an issue on which both sides feel strongly and are unlikely to budge. Both camps have made their arguments here, and no one's mind has been changed. Debbie's poll shows a majority in favor of drop-ins, but a significant minority are ...
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
I guess we have a different definition of "integrity." I think the integrity of the event has already been compromised by moving opposite a bigger, more prestigious event. Drop-ins seek to remedy this to the maximum degree possible.
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
Agree with Cristophe. 0 carryover will not deter anyone who wants to enter the BRP.
