“…According to the OP there is currently no-one registered who they would not play against, although there was at one point. So isn’t this still a theoretical discussion right now…?” Yes, it is. A Cavafy's poem comes to mind WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS "What are we waiting for ...
Crunch Time
In a tournament with many sessions, the probability to start a session with a poor result is highly probable even for a world class pair/team. So according to Neuberg formula (I didn’t know the name): Let’s assume that a pair or a team gets a poor result ...
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
Why not to extend to the future teammates of their teammates? Following your reasoning: it seems difficult to believe that the teammates of the teammates aren’t aware of what was going on after playing together for years.
