My NABC robot-game :)
I finished 48th. I was definitely tired the final two sessions, and had one serious error and a couple of less serious errors per session. It was a fun event! The bots are terrible at most things, of course, but it feels like a fair and fun event, and I ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
The robot tournament format used in the current daily event is not cheat-proof, but it is much more cheat-resistant than online pairs and team games. I haven't seen the rules, but I think for online games of any import or cash, you should have a rule that anyone ever ...

"The outrage of all outrages"? Full disclosure: I spent GIB's early years on OKbridge murdering them with a good a partner. At one time, I offered a sizable (not Zia-sized, but sizeable) bet to Mr. Ginsberg that a group of Flight B players (including me) could beat GIB in ...
A First Person History of a Card Boom
See Tibbetts v. Van de Kamp (1990) 222 Cal.App.3d 389. Short version: No one knows for sure. But it was some type of popular stud game in the 1880's. The legislature declined to define it at the time, and then everyone forgot. The case found that Texas ...
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
There was a winning path on this hand, and Ben found it. Great job. I am unsurprised by this end; I am awarding Ben ten effectiveness points and myself one prediction point. Yay, UNC! Yay, Ben! Yay, bridge!
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
I'm actually a criminal prosecutor. Gambling law has been mostly an academic interest of mine, so it is good to hear from a practitioner.
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
Good. This is what I would have advised you to do. Always start at the lowest level - it appears from the university's response that they are trying to do the right thing. The advice given to escalate early is, in my opinion, anti-productive. I am a lawyer. I fancy ...
Ethical conundrum
Q1: Pass. Q2: Pass. Q3: Depends on what happened. If you pull this, you're a felon. I would not enforce 4. Who was where would only matter as to a PP.
The Last Five Days
I join in all this except that "can be rectified," should read "will be rectified." It clearly can be rectified. I think it's clear that Roy wants to rectify this officially if that's at all an option. I especially appreciate the direct communication about the NZ pair's ...
There is a house in Hoxton
3 is not-forcing-no-way. (I think 1-2-X-P-3 is also not forcing, but shows real extra shape/offense.) I'd open 1S, and rebid 3H. Over 3S, I'll bid 4C. We haven't yet missed this grand/found the hopeless one, but we can still get there ...
