Report on Vote on Tie-breaking & follow up vote
The original reason given for the desire to avoid overtime play was a desire to not impact the schedule when the overtime would affect the start of other matches and the desire not to send the declared winner into the next round with the handicap of having played more boards ...
VOTE on How to Break Ties in Knockout Stage Matches
I would favor any reasonable method of breaking ties EXCEPT when we are selecting only 1 team and the match that is tied is the final, or when we are selecting 2 teams and the match for USA2 is tied.
How Long Should the 2-team Open USBC be?
Would it be impolitic to note that all those who voted for 120 board matches are professional players and all those whose vote is shown for 90 board matches are not professionals. Chris didn't vote but his sentiments would lie with the amateurs.
How Long Should the 2-team Open USBC be?
I would point to the recently completed USBF Seniors where (IMO) of the teams I rated in the top 3, 2 succeeded and the other lost (twice) in the finals. Again, IMO, we got what we wanted: the best possible representatives for the world championship.
The End Of The Beginning
Yes, and for the same reason. If, for example, the coughing doctors only gave a legitimate signal after clicking their ball point pens, they could cough on many hands to disguise the hands on which a signal was being given. They could click their pen but not cough, which would ...
The End Of The Beginning
IMO, as long as both members of a partnership are able to be physically present at the same table while play proceeds, cheating will continue to occur. Wise cheaters would use a 2 step process; 1st, an indicator to show whether or not a signal will be forthcoming and 2nd ...
4 Way Transfers with Range Ask
Gavin, I apologize if this has already been discussed in this thread. Do you use 2S/1NT with some 15-17 HCP hands (assuming 14+-17 NT opening) or does 1NT-2S-(2NT or 3C)-4NT have a different meaning? I like to have the understanding that if you go through the ...
Testing a Hypothesis
Just so I can be clear, Kit, when you mention suits of requested shift, are you basing the suit requested on video evidence where you are relying on a code having been broken, or is the suit requested simply the suit partner would have requested if he had a way ...
Jump-Starting the Process
My concern is when( not if) the ACBL is sued for depriving a player of a right to make a living that its defense that "we were only honoring the outcome of the IDF hearing" will not prove adequate with an American court. A pervious cheating case was dropped by ...
Jump-Starting the Process
I am not optimistic about any meaningful reform by the NBO's in resolving cases involving suspected cheaters. Keep in mind that with respect to the F/S matter the IBF, WBF, EBL, and ACBL are, at a minimum, all involved with providing a fair opportunity for F/S to ...
