Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
To illustrate: if you play against a system like this, you may ask what has been shown by the opponents at a particular point in the auction. The (completely honest) answer may be: I he has the queen of clubs and the king of diamonds and an odd number of ...
Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
If online notes are allowed, the next step after getting very comprehensive agreements might be to get very complex agreements, maybe to the point of many calls being encrypted (like this: but way more complicated). The people playing the system could make a big ...
Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
I agree that having an accurate record of play is a good asset. Hopefully, it will also be possible to obtain such a record from video of face to face play before too long. With enough effort, it should be possible to create software to analyze the video. This can ...

Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
I am sorry that I cannot solve the problem. There has been a lot of talk about keyloggers, IP addresses, cameras, etc. on this forum lately, so I thought I would point out that these approaches may help but will not solve the problem. It also makes me sad every ...
Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
I think this makes a lot of sense. It removes the possibility of "casual" cheating and it is probably the best you can do. Cheating is also possible in face to face bridge, so the risk is always there. I don't know how many players we are talking about ...
