Question about User Interface
I had the exact same problem, and I sent an Email to the BW support group. Their answer did not help at all.
Yiting Wins Women's Swiss
There were 10 teams, qualifying 8 (there were 17 teams in Reno 2016, qualifying 10). Six 9-board matches in the qualifying, with Swiss pairing. In the finals, the order of play was predetermined, with seven 8-board matches. We played the Yiting team both days. They are terrific card players, and ...

What is mainstream here?
The structure that I normally play over 1N is that 3m is 5-5 NF/F, and 3M is shortage. (I think it might be better to play it as a fragment, as it's harder for the opponents to double). I have played in partnerships where after a transfer, 3m ...
Future Claims Procedures - if proposed 2017 laws are accepted.
When I claim, I protect myself from pulling the wrong card or revoking. So I try to claim, and run into two kinds of opponents. One kind thinks I'm trying to pull the wool over their eyes, and the other kind realizes that they have nothing to lose by ...
