There were six hands with double digit swings, most of which involved bidding judgment (remarkably, on 4 of the 6 hands, it was the opening bid that got things started down a different path).  Other opportunities were available on defense and declarer play for substantially different results, so the judgment in bidding wasn't the only factor […]

Only 4 double digit swings today.  All involved bidding judgment, but the largest two swings of the day involved a player that thought it would be wise to interfere in the auction with hearts.  Spoiler alert:  It wasn't. […]

For most of its history,  the ACBL  allowed players at clubs to send reports or complaints to their Unit Recorder. This was of particular advantage to players in one-club towns (or smaller cities) who had complaints involving the club manager or club owner, as their complaints would obviously not receive a fair hearing, and they could not vote […]
