You made my day!

I have to say that I dislike this thread; stop generalizing. There are cheaters out there and in this room; but we are many and they are few (and still fewer have been evaluated … don't forget that). With that said:

Years of sofistery might have lead to disappointed opponents. Just a wild guess, about the same level of fact as anecdotal arguments. Remember we all have blind spots.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."

So, the end solution is to that is to not adding the scores. Let the computer compute, just read the cards.

One better solution is digital reading of bidding cards and cards, and measurement of time laps. (digital cards will also do).

In addition will many of the anomalies as tempo breaks, statistiscs based length of an individual huddle and be possible to analyze. Lead from wrong hand, play from wrong hand can be made impossible (even revoke if we have a secure system). And some claims will take longer time and just play, because claim will be recorded manually; and the most proper way is to record the whole claim :)

An update in this direction will give us att proper game, where you can describe the game for not bridge players without shame (How many of us are willing say something about the error level of the scoring at all bridge levels? 2016?)

Tip of the day! Read the CC and base your bidding on the letter in the CC. From my point of view is it arrogant not to read the CC. Why not stop alert of 1C, 1N and 2C (to start with), to learn bridge player to use the information they already got.

I had no intention to associate you guys with cheaters; the choice of acronyms in stead of names had no deeper meaning than it was shorter than the name. I'm very sorry for this.

Well, This year I have made it four times. Two time each 50 board mp tourney I played during springtime, so this have a little higher frequence than what have been suggested above.

We need to do a better risk analysis of light third hand openings; one should be very careful with hands in the interval 7-9 hp. The risk with weaker opening, 0-6(7), is much lower because opponents make their game often enough. Hands with 8-9 with slow hp should be passed; so the Spainish guys and some of the defenders have got it wrong.

I'd personally like to change the definition of HUM. I don't know if B-L share my risk analysis, but I admit that I overuse sub weak third hands openings, especially in mp. The up side is that declarer tends to play me with 8-9 hp instead of 5-7 hp (no one ask partner anything even if the opening always is alerted); and some time the opponents chose wrong game (defence bidding is not that well defined as undisturbed bidding for many pairs).

So, which frequence of sub weak third should be OK; 1 of 10 or 1 of 20 (just to put in a figure in the fire)? I really hope that this issue end up in some constructive discussion and better regulations.

Interesting approach! FIGB might risk to be the bridge equvivalent to “Kenya and/or Russia”. Play the card smoothly.

FS / FN cheating is embarrassing for us bridge players, completely unsophisticated cheating … it will disqualify us from the mind games??? Let us hope that it is not our “best cheater” :(

Agree, the carding is probable to follow, just install four card readers to all table to follow the play. Then you can get the perfect vugraph in real time as well as all data for analysis of tempo and percentage play (lead, hit rate, false claims etc). …Sounds cheap and fair IMHO. We just have to remember that the lokal variation in a data set can be huge, we can only follow longtime aspect with such technique.
