Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
BZ v Romania. Crack the Code...
I'm only looking at the video time stamps that you document. Agree that 10:32 Z shows Q. Also agree 11:03 B asks and Z shows K. 2/2 cards correct.
Improving the Seeding Process
About 3 years ago (2014?), ACBL introduced its own home-grown software to help with seeding with Vanderbilt/Spingold. To handle this increase in efficiency the registration deadline was changed from 8pm to 6pm. The developer (who is no longer with ACBL) typed in the player names instead of the ACBL ...
When is shuffle/deal/play appropriate?
The ACBL Bulletin Editors have a tool for that. Given a session and board number, and with a couple of clicks they have the hand records in whatever rotation (0, 90, 180, 270) they want in the proprietary ACBL hand record format.
BZ v Romania. Crack the Code...
1:15:02 I see B with RH fist on table, not LH. This would imply hearts, trumps 1:15:08 Z gives a king signal and points to his LHO. I would say that Z is stating that his LHO has K. I was wrong. Looked at hand record ...
BZ v Romania. Crack the Code...
Agreed. After Z leads he makes a scratching movement with his R hand. This is a common gesture for both of them. Suggestion is that this shows a worthless doubleton or tripleton. In this case I would guess it shows 2 worthless cards remaining in suit (I speculated before I ...
BZ v Romania. Crack the Code...
1:32:29 Z looks at west hand. 1:32:33 Z left hand. Spades. At same time, RH, queen. Showing Q. Shoulder is not a known signal. 1:32:34 Z points at his LHO. Agreed. Showing that his LHO has Q. And his LHO does. 1:32:36 ...
BZ v Romania. Crack the Code...
Confirming what you see (I'm only looking at the time stamps, not the entire play) 1:48:31 Z looks at west hand (Z is sitting South) for a good 8 seconds. 1:48:41 Z reaches over and taps the card in West hand that he should play ...
The Videos Speak: Balicki - Zmudzinski
Cornelia was right with "Also watch the other signals such as scratching (face, chest, groin) and knuckle rapping. Maybe you can make the tie-in!" Chest=Q, Groin=J. Knuckle rapping was suit. Face with either A or K or 10 depending where on the face.
BZ - "People and their strange mannerisms"
From the third-hand stories I heard, Poland may be able to prosecute based on video from the Polish Premier League (PPL). I believe time has expired for Poland to do anything about EBTC 2014. I don't know the EBL position or any double jeopardy rules. This is certainly a ...
BZ - "People and their strange mannerisms"
The video against Turkey, which was not used here to analyze the signals, showed 21 specific cards signaled. They were all in the appropriate hands. The odds of this being random are sufficiently high to prove the case. If you still doubt, please review on of the matches from Romania ...
