How High for Equal Level Conversion Doubles?

Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
Christopher Monsour: “If I play in an open notes competition, the opponents' notes should be open to me.” Agree. My ‘notes’ have the form of a website and the address is on my convention card (as is a summary, of course).
Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
Justin Lall: “Those who think looking at your notes would be a feature not a bug are really underestimating how it would change top level bridge if online play were to become the norm.” Correct. However, as long as online play is not the norm but is predominantly a form ...
To BBO: Please eliminate UI from insta-actions
The Dutch online bridge facility, StepBridge, does just that.
