Ethical, questionable or cheating?
I didn't mean my comment as an absolute, which is why I said "not easily". Sometimes it's obvious, but not always. This is the same problem screens try to solve. Automating it can do a little better, since it can try to hide the tempo all 3 other ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
In that case I'm not sure what the point was. We already have software like that, so of course the programmer can write it that way.
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Can what, shorten a really long tank? How? Suppose we decide that "normal" tempo is 10 seconds per bid. So after you bid, it holds up showing you all the other 3 bids for 30 seconds. If one of them takes 40 seconds to bid, how can it undo this ...
Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
The way the voice software is set up, we can only run it with one version of the client at a time. We waited until the new version was being used by the majority of users and then switched over. It was working well until this week, we may have ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Many who suggest electronic play as the solution to all tempo problems presume that the system will automatically even out the tempo. There's obviously a limit to this -- if someone goes into the tank for a minute, it can't shorten this. But instead of showing each bid/play ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
The Laws say you're allowed to take inferences from the opponent's mannerisms, although at your own risk. The Laws also say you're supposed to try to win. If you believe you need to take those inferences in order to win, then you're practically required to do ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Lots of players will raise on 3 without a way to inquire. I don't play an inquiry method in most of my partnerships, but I'll raise on 3 whenever it seems the least of evils. If "frequently raise on 3" means they do it even when there are ...
USA II OPEN TEAM ON BERMUDA BOWL 2019
Do the google search that Mike suggested. It was more serious than just weed that someone suggested in the other thread.
USA II OPEN TEAM ON BERMUDA BOWL 2019
Joe's situation has also been discussed in this thread: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/drop-outs-from-world-championships/ No one has said outright why his visa was denied, but someone suggested it was based on a criminal background involving marijuana. While the marijuana legalization movement has been progressing (slowly) in the US ...
Are Bots Endplay Averse?
Unfortunately, GIB's programming doesn't include any form of "If he had X, he would have done Y" logic. The defense programming is almost entirely based on DD simulation using hands consistent with the bidding and play so far. But "consistent" doesn't mean "optimal". The combinatorial explosion from ...
