BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???
Barry, thanks again. But, the award still seems high for only 12 boards. I haven't looked it up, but I thought the F2F award was a lot less if fewer than 18 or 21 boards.
BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???
Thanks, Barry for the explanation. From my perspective it seems like a 1/4 table instant MP game. I feel a little better that the 14 other players were human. What are the chances that I might have been one of the 14 who played these hands before? So is ...
BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???
Actually, it is a MP award issue. ACBL has corrected some in the past. There was the triple MP award for charity games that was discovered/corrected. There was an extreme award bias toward regional KO awards that was changed. So, there is hope. I do not know what the ...
BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???
Greg, That's my point. BBO ACBL robot games are a different form of the game. But, the ACBL awards masterpoints in BBO robot games like it's ACBL matchpoint duplicate. It is not: best hand you play the hand if dummy wins the contract memory aids a liberal (anti-ACBL ...
BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???

BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???
Not quite sure what you mean. My understanding is that a third of the total point requirements, except pigmentation, can include online points. I consider myself an intermediate/advancing player who seldom goes to tournaments and plays at the local club perhaps 30 times a year. I achieved Gold LM ...
BBO ACBL ROBOT GAMES NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME???
David, I agree that BBO robot games may help one's declarer play and defense. But, it is laughable that ACBL robot games are treated like real duplicate and freely award masterpoints. It is not legitimate ACBL duplicate: a. memory aids are not available in brick-n-mortar games (you may not ...
Technical solutions to stop cheating
Nice poem, David, but the "meter" is not so great.
Recap Display - Tools and Services
It's been months since I last posted. Since then, I've learned a few things (means there's hope for me. You can't teach a old dog new tricks, but you can't teach a dumb dog any tricks). The Common Game uses BBO to replay a hand ...
Bridge Solver Online (hand replay facility for integration with club websites)
John did an excellent job here - and entirely on his own dime. I modified my copy of Matthew Kidd's ACBLmerge to incorporate his replay feature. http://unit132.org/Wichitagameresults/150814E.HTM shows an example. On any board, one can click on the replay button. Additionally, on the partnership's ...
