Having someone recording at every table would be a very costly exercise using current technology. Operators need to be paid and equipped, tables will need to be partitioned requiring significantly larger venues and IT infrastructure will need to dramatically enhanced to cope with broadcasting from 60+ tables at a youth ...

Ai-Tai, making the KO matches longer will have a cost somewhere; be that extra venue and staffing costs for an elongated event or player fatigue and poorer quality bridge with a more compressed playing schedule.

Plans B-Z don't necessarily need to be anything that breaks Chinese laws. Posting a photo of the onsite scoreboard on the WBF's various social media accounts every 5 minutes would be a start.

Does the ACBL need more Washrooms at NABCs OR should players be kicked out of tournaments with cause?
So it looks like the ACBL doesn't publish details of who it issues reprimands to and Mr Lazarus' probation is for some unrelated transgression. Personally, I don't see any problem in naming the guilty provided what you are reporting is an absolute matter of fact; but I can ...
Does the ACBL need more Washrooms at NABCs OR should players be kicked out of tournaments with cause?
The only player commencing a period of probation shortly after Toronto seems to be Ed Lazarus who was done for "Actions or behavior unbecoming a person participating in an ACBL sanctioned tournament or event; or a person attending (at the time and site of) an ACBL sanctioned tournament or event ...
