[*] Many current rules are too sophisticated, over-subjective, unnecessary, add no value, and should be eliminated ...

Life Master Pairs Mess
Allowing players adequate time to peruse and check detailed provisional scores (their own and those of other competitors), goes some way to establishing [b][i]the facts[/b][/i].
