Meckwell leaving NICKELL
Nothing to add to the discussion here, but can we stop using LeBron as the metric for leaving for a better situation? The fact that he stayed with the lifeless Cleveland Cavaliers as long as he did is pretty incredible considering what they look like the second he leaves their ...
Bridge on Twitch
Twitch is an online community whose main aim is to provide a platform for people to stream themselves playing video games. The most popular streamers will have thousands of people watching them whenever they're online. Bridge has a very small following on there, but it's definitely enjoyable to ...
Bridge on Twitch
Thanks for the shoutout, Will. It'll be difficult for me to cover the championships with the time difference (and the fact that I work so I don't stay up late at night), but I'll definitely do what I can.
Mitchell Open BAM Teammates?
Haha Dave, I don't enforce those standards as long as it's a good time :)
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
It doesn't necessarily have to be a 4-session MP event, but I think a 4-session event there open to all in that timeslot (right now, only the Women's Pairs and the Senior Swiss exist, neither of which I'm eligible for) would be nice.
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
No qualms with the location or venue for Vegas, it was very good. However, I still am not a fan of the schedule for pairs games in the Summer NABC. After the LM Pairs over the first weekend, there's no pairs event until the Wernhers on Wednesday, relegating people ...
ATB -620 instead of +620
This is a tough situation (luckily, didn't have to make it at my table because they bid 4H and now 4S was an auto call). I probably would have been a 3S bidder had it been a 3H or fit jump bid, so not sure if my partner is ...
Petition for NABC+ Midnight KO
I appreciate being included in the group of "rising talent", Jacob. If this becomes a reality, I want everyone to know that I am a strong teammate on account of not drinking (although, if that becomes a handicap, I suddenly become an anchor for a team). Any system restrictions? Seems ...
James on Jeopardy TV show
I emailed James today based on the email on his Twitter account to see if he'd be at the Vegas NABC. First off, the fact that he responded within an hour is pretty incredible considering that he must have media requests out the wazoo. Anyways, he'll be there ...
He never sleeps on the couch
Yeah, we didn't do too well when we defended 3S while being cold for 5D. But always a fun match against Dave and Anne regardless of outcome!
