No one is stopping Pro`s practicing, no one is stopping anyone watching them either delayed or live ,take your pick.
Bridge needs the top players, but the top players don't exist as bridge pro`s without the hard work of everyone else. Time to stop whingeing and give back what you are able.
My guess is we are online for at least 6 more months, if all we do for the next 6 months is complain about who may or not be cheating in tournaments that are basically practice( not going into private financial arrangements here) we are going to be in a sorry and hateful place in 6 months time.

@ Giles,
At the risk of being flagged and censored, at least Test Cricket has more countries involved than the World Series.

I quoted where it came from, I assume not everyone has access to this source.

@ Richard,
If one considers being a Bridge Pro as teaching as a sole proprietor or a partnership, it is exempt from VAT.

No No and thrice No I say.
We have no idea why people wish to remain anonymous to you. Demanding their real names might be putting someone in say an abusive relationship in harms way.
Maybe some one is in witness protection?
Maybe someone is playing bridge while they should be working( most of us)
Seriously I know people that do not have their real name in ACBL score for reasons similar to the above.

I suggest you discuss this with Mr. Perkins.
Your efforts may well be rewarded, but probably only in heaven. You will lose your hair, definitely have a follicular pigmentation change.
You will be making regular trips to CVS for blood pressure medication.
On the other hand, you may get rewarded with the platitude that you are the life blood of something or the other.
I will give you the same advice as my father gave me, before walking down the aisle.
You know you really don't have to do this, we can all go home now if you want.

Nice discussion.
From BBO/Common Game/Virtual Clubs/ today.
“Development resources have dissipated and there is no more visibility on future projects.”
So unless we got coders with access, we are just writing a wish list for down the line.

Well obviously Marshall and Tom are talking about the same thing
26 Board Session vs Spingold Match.
Not even sure you guys are talking about the same game.

No idea about the past, but the last three months has seen an enormous amount of changes to BBO.
They are listening and they are taking action.

They might take a while to program it into an update, but for the moment one can in settings turn on confirm bids and confirm cards, which adds a minor delay to how long it takes to make your call.
Even a second is actually noticeable. Mostly it is another step that people don't like, but in my club games I make a point of telling players to use it, to avoid misclicks and misbids.
I am sure most of them ignore me, but at least I try.

Interesting point.
My take on that is it is entirely possible I have been cheated in online play, but I would feel much happier if the League was in a position to take serious action.
Negotiated resolutions may not be a slap on the wrist, but as we see no additions to the probation or suspension lists one gets the feeling that it is.
I don't really care if one individual cheats or even a group of individuals, I care that the League can and will take action when it happens.
If they cant then whether the game is clean or not becomes irrelevant, the perception will be its always tainted.
The other day one of my club players told me they wont be playing in the online regional because everyone cheats!!! she has something like 400 masterpoints, but when the people in the trenches are saying that we have a problem.

But I am quite happy to buy a camera if that's what it takes to play.

Roflol.
He means the three white lines, which is known in certain circles as the options menu, but in others as the hamburger menu.

I know I had 4 complaints of this nature today. Every single one of them in my estimation was FBI ( FIXED BY IDIOTS) in themselves they look horrible, but when the 4 pairs accused did not break average, I doubt they were cheating on one specific board.
One hand really does not cross the threshold for making accusations public.

In the main as I director I have very little control over many aspects of BBO, the one thing I do have control over is whether a machine can win masterpoints.
Not on my watch, it is actually a different game and not the one I advertise.
I advertise matchpoints come play against your friends from the club, not pit you wits against Mr. Ginsberg's toys.

Don,
The answer to your question of why the ACBL has a score card going on?
Because we the chattering classes keep asking what the ACBL are doing, I would imagine Robb got pissed off with people asking ,so decided to show them, just a guess.

Robots do freeze, and if you are not adding time in the final round so you don't have to chase corrections, you are making your life infinitely harder.
