Tricky Bridge: Playtest it now!
I like the idea! I hope it works out, it would be nice to have a simple place to direct people for the abc of learning the game.
The Kibs Are Not Alright
@Bharat, I would love for this time away from the table to be used to fortify the future of bridge. It will not survive if nobody learns the game anymore, eventually all the players will die off. I just struggle to see how we are going to reach a new ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
@Bharat; I really hope that whatever future bridge has, it is not entirely online. While At the table bridge has some live cheating elements and even with screens, ethics are not entirely perfect, I still believe that bridge is a beautiful SOCIAL game and losing the F2F part of that ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
I, for one, have always found it distasteful that the spectators know the result of a match that I just finished playing before I have a chance to score up. Am I alone in this?
The Kibs Are Not Alright

Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
Andrew, clearly you have the expertise, might you be willing to lend that to BBO if they are responsive? This could be the start to a solution we badly need!
Andrea Buratti plays in Major Alt
@giovanni Are you really trying to equate anything that Helgemo or Passell have ever done to what Buratti did constantly for 20 years? Get real.
Andrea Buratti plays in Major Alt
@richardFleet;Contempt is pretty unfair, some of us love bridge and want to earn our living playing it. Wanting to avoid convicted collusive cheaters in top F2F events is reasonable and being willing to sacrifice income from those events for a stand on ethics is amazing. Now years later you ...
