My thoughts about how the ACBL should be structured.
Ken - STAC’s don’t go necessarily go away - Units would allocate Silver Point Sessions in this model the same way Districts would have freedom to allocate their Gold Point sessions.
Ethics??
John - Dummy can call the Director if 1. An irregularity occurs then 2. Another player calls attention to the irregularity and does not call the Director Hopefully I have paraphrased what you said. A pet peeve of mine when dummy is players that won’t release their cards onto the ...
How I would revise our NABC Tournaments
Ed - Gatlinburg is unique. Has surpassed several NABC table counts. I think the closest we come Regional wise in the West is possibly Palm Springs that has made it to about 3,000 tables. Since Gburg is so successful, it seems obvious what the players want- super inexpensive. A lot ...

OK - The “Ask Ed” question - can’t find the reference
As I read it - There is no such thing as a “club suspension” A Club Manager can bar a player for may different reasons for any length of time. This barring is for that Club Manager’s entity only. Then your post mentioned Unit/District involvement. Was there a Disclipinary ...
Theoretical Claim Question
There is a precedent for this sort of situation (can dig up the published case if need be) Situation was declared held SA HAK. Spades were trump. There was one outstanding spade. Regional Case: Panel ruled declarer lost a trick as remaining cards could be played in any order. Panel ...
Ethics??
If there is an irregularity and attention has been called to it by another player, the dummy may call the TD.
Ethics??
Ed - “fixing to face” may have put the card in the played position. Then it is easy??
