Protecting the game we love
Hi Fred, Good that you’re weighing in. I’m not disputing the other forms of cheating between bridge partners mentioned in the article. However, I'm skeptical of a fully secured playing area. If you'd take that to the extreme it would mean metal detectors and full body ...

@Maxim: Yes! We ran that promotion for the month of December (it's over now) to boost the number of players on the site, which increases the prize pools and the number of games - which we hope you would agree is a good goal. The €10 euro bonus was enough ...
