ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Irrational Plays
Everyone thinks this hand is trivial, you have 13 top tricks. Only experts realise that the hand is only trivial if you safety play clubs. Ergo, if you don't manage to mention that then you are in category one (the hand is ALWAYS trivial) and go down in a ...
The President speaks
Indeed caffeine is on the banded substances list but you would have to be taking caffeine tablets and not just coffee in order to break the level above which a drug offence would be deemed to have occurred.
Gender Standard for ACBL Events
Or since the WBF isn't part of the IOC and bridge isn't a physical activity then the US can set a precedent with their actions now and can lobby the WBF to adopt the same criterion at some point in the future.
Gender Standard for ACBL Events
Trying to get the discussion back on track. Both options 4 & 5 are for the situation where physical strength is an advantage (sporting events rather than games like bridge). Given the prevailing opinion at BW that drug testing is unnecessary (there are much more effective ways to cheat at bridge ...
Gender Standard for ACBL Events
The discussions about whether there should or shouldn't exist women's events are a distraction. If you want to push that agenda then you should start a new thread. A precondition to this being a problem is the existence of women's (and mixed) events. Given that these events ...
Finding Piekarek-Smirnov cheating methods

Observation help for B/Z bid-spacing
The key is to find people that are willing to look at the videos without looking at the hands. And therefore who don't have a preconceived idea of what they "should" answer for the spacing on a given hand. Having multiple people as Kit says helps a lot. And ...
I.O.C. vs W.B.F.
Comparing to the IOC isn't really fair because the IOC doesn't administer any specific sport. No wonder the IOC doesn't have a laws committee then. I'm not saying that the WBF is the prototype of how an efficient sporting/gaming organisation should be run, but I ...
Finding Piekarek-Smirnov cheating methods
Doug, I don't think the public uncovering the PS method will have much sway in their sentencing. As I stated above Boye has said that he has passed on all the evidence to the EBL and that his deal was that he wouldn't make it public if they ...
Finding Piekarek-Smirnov cheating methods
Michael: Boye has stated else where that the deal included not PUBLICLY revealing the methods. The evidence has gone to the EBL thus there can be no claim of obstruction of justice.
