2020 North American Online Bridge Championships
In case you don't know, here is a 3 minute clip from the British show, "The IT Crowd" in 2008 where Jen, head of IT, is shown the Internet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDbyYGrswtg And this is her speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vywf48Dhyns
The Kibs Are Not Alright
@Kit: It looks like there was at least one cheating player at the tournaments. I didn't look up to see who you played against. I haven't looked at a single board from the event; just the data. I will state that based on what I see that Bart ...
2020 North American Online Bridge Championships
@Richard: This is the difference between apples and oranges. A computer can look at a lot of data, and from this determine a player (or pair, I'll just use the generic term player from now on) that is likely cheating. It can do all of this very quickly. This ...
How to Handle Suspicions of Cheating in an Online Club Game
The WBF hearing was chaired by Georgia Heth. Now ACBL president. Donna Compton provides a good review here: http://www.pbb-webinars.com/GermanCheatingScandal.html The WBF hearing was held in Dallas on the same day at the German AGM meaning the German Bridge Federation were unable to attend the original ...

How to Handle Suspicions of Cheating in an Online Club Game
@Amy: No. No (illegal under the Laws). Yes, but if you had examples from previous situations you have a case, c.f. Lall/Bathurst. We all do. You shouldn't, spelling lessons instead :-); correct; we are all glad you are not.
How to Handle Suspicions of Cheating in an Online Club Game
I am working with some of the virtual clubs. They have banned players. It does not become public. They ban because the players are cheating. So far, no-one has complained. The cheating players move on to other clubs. ACBL does little; it is easier for the clubs to ban the ...
