Half tables are dropped from the totals shown here.

The field strength numbers are computed as the arithmetic and geometric means respectively of the masterpoint holdings for all ACBL members in an event. The masterpoint system is really an award system rather than a rating system. However, despite the entanglements of longevity, frequency of play, and grade inflation (especially triple point charity games, curtailed in 2010), masterpoint holdings must have some correlation with skill level, especially when averaged over all players in an entire event. And in a Rumsfeldian sort of way it is the system we have if not the one we want to have.

Do you have trouble keeping track of names and faces? No need to be embarrassed anymore! Face View is here. Just hold your mouse cursor over a player’s name to see their picture and approximate strength.

In order to introduce the feature I have uploaded faces for many San Diego regulars, including nearly everyone in the North San Diego unit and many of the La Jolla Unit game regulars. If you would like to have your picture added or wish to submit a different picture please e-mail the picture and your player number to me. If there are multiple people in the picture be sure to indicate which one is you. If you prefer that your picture not be displayed, e-mail me and I will remove it from the face database promptly.

If you submit a picture and want to make my life easy, crop the image to your face and resize it so that the longest dimension is 150 pixels. If you do not understand what this means, don’t worry - just e-mail me the picture.
