Have many, but having our team Kibitzed by 3 players I knew were on the top 500 list, wondering who our opponents must be.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
The $30 is paid once for the week. Thus 0 - 6 games. Sunday is not in the week's game. Additionally you will play the card fees for the games you play in the club. The $30 gives [b]you[/b] the privilege to get the additional Gold/Red awards ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Hi Richard Should we instead of email or phone use for messaging - ACBL login, - Bridge Winner mail, - Look for messages in the common game message box with ACBL# login?
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
As Don has commented - There appears no statement on how this new event is being measured. In theory, it could help attendance of both if we have several players leaving ACBL sanctioned Club and Tournaments because their hope for Life Master was impossible. Now it might seem feasible and they ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Jeff in Reach the scores are by individual. So you 1. You can play with different partners 2. Partner doesn't have to be registered. 3. Partner and you need to be ACBL members. And of course you must play the common game afternoon hands, since they are used for ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Possible if you were playing in a STAC in Florida during a REACH week. Many STAC games in Florida use The Common Game files. Partner paying the registration fee gets 2 Gold and 4 Silver. You unregistered get the 4 Silver. Again, unlikely in a real (that is non STaC ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Peg like seeing your comments. The reduction of REACH is yet to be seen on Regionals. One of the major concerns with lower level [b]older in age[/b] players is the Gold (and Red) requirements. REACH may make them enough pigment points that they might justify that trip to ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
John, sectionals play their own set of boards. I recall a couple of years back the BOD voted to not allow two sectionals playing the same board as even another sectional for that day*. REACH as played now require playing common boards for participants of the day's afternoon session ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Hi Jeff There never is a good week. In our case our Districts Regional interferes with the IFG Saturday and REACH. And yes the first clue a REACH would exist was mid December 2017. However, this is an experiment. Let us hope the information will flow better if it becomes ...
Would you call for the director?
Really off the topic here but the [b]tone[/b] of many of your responses are somewhat annoying to me. No matter the action - director called or not and not down playing the Jeff's actual playing level, which is much higher than what occurs in many of my games ...
An Absurd ACBL Procedure
Slightly off topic. Many clubs have started having half tables filled in with BBO robots in pair games. In a club Swiss has anyone done a BBO robot team? The real solution of course is to get rid of the 3way,triple, round robin altogether. The BBO robots could solve ...
