Stop criticizing Masterpoints

 

          Masterpoints is an awards system.  Masterpoints is used for Life Master achievements, the Barry Crain 500, Ace of Clubs, and other Masterpoint races.  I do not want to get rid of Masterpoints, but ACBL members criticize Masterpoints when it is used to bracket, stratify, or flight ACBL events.   I advocate we have both an awards system, and a ratings system.  One system cannot do both jobs well.

 

          If Masterpoints were not used to bracket, stratify, and flight, it would be restored to its formal glory before the creation of these events.
