I agree. I add that my question (“Someone may help me with finding a relevant reason etc..”) was a rethorical question. I have been a programmer a lifetime. I am convinced that these shortcomings on EBL/WBF web sites are the result of a monopolistic approach typical for central institutions. They are the consequence of insufficient pressure from the bridge public and national associations (sry, my english is poor, but I hope that these words makes sense).

Human psychology is unchangeable. People want to know the value of their individual contribution. It motivates them to better individual performances. Yes, in some cases, this can be the opposite.

However, it is not the task of the organizers to make such a situation completely suppressed. Leave it on the players, on their social and game inteligence. Players know best what is good for them.

Tx for specification. I was only once there. That was when two printers worked. Next time I was only in the drinks/foods and toilets queues (bitter experience for full life), I skipped the results. I'm a player, right :)?

PS. In our local tournaments, after the end of the session, the referee divides frequency and hand diagrams. Without a problem, one for 50 pairs. The referees are for the game, not the other way around.

Sorry, but I do not need a database. I call for complex results on the website.

Pdf diagrams here, the results there, the frequency of the other - is the goulash.

For Ed Reppert: of course, only unusual 3NT would require an alert. 3NT to play is not alertable.

It is the same as in the US or in UK. We use standard alert policy.

3nt is alertable. Our local regulation is that bids over 3NT without screens are not alertable.

We use standard EBL alerting policy (http://www.eurobridge.org/alerting-policy.aspx).

In principle every calls which carries a specific message about the suits or the strength of the hand, must be alerted.

David write: “At the start of Chennai the wbf was presented with substantial evidence”.

From https://pl.scribd.com/doc/283676080/Rumour-and-Mathematics-pdf

The Chairman’s answers that the Commitee is allowed to take a decision of not inviting players WITHOUT GIVING A REASON. Mr. Aubry admits, however, “that a material on Balicki-Żmudzińki’s misbehaviour has reached WBF. The MATERIAL HAS NOT YET BEEN ANALYSED”.

Substantial evidence = without giving a reason and not analysed. Nice.

Juries never find defendants innocent. They cannot. Not only is it not their job, it is not within their power. They can only find them “not guilty.”

Michael, it was not about Hitler (Godwin law), it was the irony.
