Join Bridge Winners
How much is winning “a lot” evidence of cheating?

I play in a club on Monday nights, and the standard is pretty low. Although I’m no expert, I believe I’m the best player there, and my partner is no slouch either. So we win frequently, and generally come in top 3 when we don’t. But there’s no way we could win every week, or even 90% of the time, as there’s just too much randomness in bridge.

But that is in an event where there’s no expectation that players will be evenly matched. 

So what about world championships and national championships and the like, where one would expect at least the top players to be relatively evenly matched? At what stage, if any, should we start to suspect that a pair or team who keeps on winning might be cheating?
