Bad Claim Case from San Francisco

SF Online Robot NABC Event - Day 2
Thanks again.
SF Online Robot NABC Event - Day 1
Thank you, Michael Bodell, for a fascinating and instructive article -- unlucky not to score better. Micheal seems to have recorded the cards in his own hand and dummy; then recorded the auction and play (call by call, and card by card, explaining his reasoning at every step). A secretary bird ...

Plea to BBO software developers
David is right. RFID is no panacea ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZesFVw-zqdA
Plea to BBO software developers
BBO is already wonderful but David Yates suggestions seem simple to implement and would improve our viewgraph experience.
Other as a logical alternative
Pelyush is right: An 'Other' option would enfranchise those with a relevant opinion not listed explicitly in the poll. Different from -- and not to be confused with -- 'Abstain', which is for those who don't want to express an opinion.
