Considering past experience, yes, I could see the ACBL being silly enough to do that.

Even if it is, I don't have to make the problem worse.

I just won't install Chinese software on my PC under ANY circumstances. I just want to get definitive word on this before we enter the event.

Can we get some definitive word on whether installing the Chinese software for audio/video chat will be required if playing vs a Chinese team?

They may draw extra people who don't have the qualifications for the Premier Pairs to enter the KO, since entering the KO grants qualification for the Premier Pairs.

Then the Chinese should not be allowed to play in this event. Requiring ACBL members to install Chinese software to play against a Chinese team is insane. Would YOU trust it?

The announcement specifically says "video and/or audio chat". Audio chat can be done with an inexpensive microphone. No need to compromise system security or pay the company $10 a month for a service you'll use for no other purpose.
District 7 Columbia/Atlanta Regionals are A GO!
So the people who think this is ridiculous can stay home. Those of us who want to play bridge will go.

I'm sure they do want to protect their members, but they do not have the right to tell their clubs they cannot play if they wish and local government allows.
