Hey! I've got more tricks than the three aces my partner provided and I know where the points are, right? Either I become a conservative bidder or I'm bidding 4H every day of the week with this hand.

Nothing like playing 4H holding KJT, QJxx, Jxx, KJx

My definition of cheating at bridge:

1) An agreement between a pair to make some movement (placement of bid, scratch of head, cough, hand gesture, hand to heart, etc.) that specifies a particular bid, strength of hand, lead or continuation. Boye Brogeland is the latest, as far as I know, to catch expert pairs cheating. I commend him.

2) Sitting next to each other or being on the phone with partner while playing online.

I believe some people have gotten carried away with this discussion. No, novices are not “cheating” when they say “oh no, I didn't mean to bid that” after the auction is over. It would be absurd to believe otherwise and ridiculous to include in this discussion. I doubt this discussion was intended for such thoughts.

To the gentleman who suggests that playing cards crookedly may mean something, I would suggest that everybody place both their cards and bids on the table in both a timely and proper manner, unless they are physically unable to do so.

Sorry if this upsets anybody but I take this issue very seriously. My motto: If you cheat me, I may lose, but you are the loser. :)

Agree 100%. If you cheat, you should be banned. Period. If proven cheaters are not banned, the ACBL is condoning their behavior and the beautiful and complex game of bridge becomes a joke.

Same subject, different view: Does anybody know the ratio of novices who come in first place overall on BBO vs. live games?
