Michael:
To each is own. I don't think I could leave the lovely Bay area in the summer to go to the depressing heat in Atlanta :).

Well, I recall that Judi Smith was a godsend but, for whatever reasons, faded away.

Bridge in Cincinnati has always been for those with a thick skin, as history has shown for it and for other major cities where bridge blossomed in the depression era 30's in the U.S.

Nevertheless, Cincy today is where progressive bridge is at its best.

Yes, but the “Tide” will win. But keep rowing.

Regrettably, it seems we have to go with the flow.

All we can do is row against the tide, never giving up, extend bridge as long as we can.

I, too, have yet to read all of this, and I suspect that I, too, will enjoy (as I most often do) another one of our man David's dissertations.

However:

“The one lesson I have learned in life is that other than personal satisfaction, being right is often meaningless”

True, but zealots serve a purpose, even if no one buys in.

If astute BW readers have trouble with the new charts, what's to expect from the rank and file :( ?

Scratch my tax deduction comment above.
I forgot that most of us need not be concerned with that problem anymore, since the national debt will take care of it (:.

I believe any club worthy of opening its doors will use the open chart for any open or unrestricted mp game. It would be rare if a highly progressive club will permit open+ chart, but there may be a few instances. Perhaps such clubs might try to accommodate some players who are in a practice mode.

The “dreaded” multi will not be inflected on a club player in the open chart, although a couple of transfer bids might be expected. I haven't checked the status of the Kaplan Inversion, it may be open chart.

A regionally-going “A” level club player will do well to prepare for the multi in those matchpoint and imp games that mandate the open+ chart. With today's small regionals, it's often possible for an ordinary “A” team to have the pleasure of doing well in a top bracket ko with round-robins.

I assume BW will be advised if the acbl in-house counsel ever speaks or writes to the membership.

Hank or anyone,
Can you point to three or four cases that might be most appropriate for club directors?

I guess Bridge Winners isn't the ideal source to launch such an official plea.

Perhaps similar appeals are being made to key districts and Acbl members on the USA/Canadian west coast.

If there is a significant monetary shortfall, perhaps leading professionals, sponsors, and elite patrons might be persuaded to make contributions.

By the way, would such contributions be considered tax deductions by the IRS?

Dislike raising a side issue, Peg, but does what you speak of, pertain beyond Minnesota real estate law?

Whatever, I like the notion.

As you have expressed and others have asked elsewhere, what are the particulars of the ACBL in-house counsel as to the legalities of our “predicament”?

Whatever that dissertation might be, would outside counsel have a similar or identical view?

Interesting.

Presumably, it would take a very large number of acbl tournament players to vote with their feet to persuade the BOD to try to enforce dramatic action.

Personally, I prefer not to be in the same room with a convicted cheater. I could manage to agree to play against a “clean” opponent who has not been willing to forfeit awards or even masterpoints.

Re “Key Metrics” data.

Monday morning quarterbacking, indeed.
Was this information – and if not, why? – previously posted on the acbl website.
And, has it now been updated?

It seems to me that a Honolulu nationals has long been a combo of a West Coast regional, high-level pros, well-heeled sponsors, wealthy patrons, and a party for the BOD.

Not that it's all bad, but probably good riddance.

Forget Goldwater's satiric comment.

At the highest levels, is there sometimes a method in the madness of leading out of turn?
