Measures against electronic cheating
Has anyone mentioned electronic countermeasures? Isn't it possible, even now, to set up an electronic "screen" which would make any outside communication impossible (hopefully without interfering with hearing aids)?
Not The Only Sort of Errors
Kit, the mechanism exists, but seems that Peg thinks it's too draconian. She seems to be suggested extending the time limit, making it easier to correct mistaken scores (to which both sides have initially agreed). That's a fine idea in principle, but an administrative headache. How long should ...
Running The Gauntlet In Poland
Well said Sabine. Nothing but admiration for you and Roy. But it's not clear why, in the second half of the final, you felt that the Polish pairs were being especially aggressive. I'm pretty sure that foreign pairs, playing in an environment where most opponents don't speak ...
The Last Five Days
Thank you Roy, for your explanation and for your conduct in this, which has been exemplary. You've obviously done the right thing, though apparently there is no assurance that the grievous injustice can be rectified. It's a shame that the WBF is handcuffed by its regs, unable to ...
To Sabine and Roy
Gene, I'm condoning nothing. Just pointing to the fact that in the past the practice has been that similarly heinous errors have not been corrected in the past, often with similarly significant results. I'm not for or against the Poles, but if they had been disqualified retroactively, because ...
To Sabine and Roy
I've skimmed comments, but may have missed something. So excuse me if someone's said this before. That there's a precedent, at the recent Bermuda Bowl, in the final result of the qualifying round where a scoring error, discovered after the deadline, meant that Japan, and not Sweden ...
To Sabine and Roy
I'm not the judge, the opposite. There's obviously been an error, but how did it happen? In the best case scenario both sides are innocent, the screw-up came somewhere else. A procedural change, as Yu puts it, seems out of the question since the "statute of limitations" has ...
To Sabine and Roy
Tony Forrester is right. Everything has been said, and it's not up to the BW "jury" to make a decision. That belongs solely to Roy and Sabine, in whom we all should have confidence.
World Bridge Games Winners
Congrats to all the winners. Talking about special mentions, allow me a small bit of national pride too. Hila Levy and Adi Asulin, both 23, were the winners of the 10-session Women's Pairs -- proving that their recent victory (and Gold) in the recent European Women's Pairs was no ...
One thing (at least) WBF did right
Yu is right when she describes Gilad as a doer. He's displayed his tremendous, youthful energy (he's in his early 30s) during his time as IBF chairman, which must be about a year now. He's been making changes, taking deep looks at things that have been done ...
