The Kibs Are Not Alright
"If it is fairly obvious that players were cheating, why were they not reported for cheating?" Many players *were* reported for cheating, at least one was disqualified, and that was before the committee. I meant to imply that once players know there is a group of world class players watching ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
It's fairly obvious that many players were cheating in the recent online tournaments. The committee of well-intended world class players that was formed to combat the problem might be useful for determining who *was* cheating during those events, but (IMO) will not prove useful in preventing future cheating since ...
Anti cheating committee
I consider Justin Lall to be among the most talented and honest players alive today and it is a shame that he cannot speak openly about his thoughts on the current state of bridge on a website purportedly dedicated to bridge. Since I recently posted that I agree with much ...

Is this call alertable?
In many auctions, XX shows extra values and pass does not which is logical. If XX shows 3 card support, and pass denies, (IMO) pass should be alerted. In the auction posted, pass could logically have several meanings: minimum balanced (for the auction), balanced but no spade stopper, a willingness ...
Is this call alertable?
SInce it has been discussed as "offer to play" (even if that is somewhat logical) I believe it should be alerted as (IMO) should all partnership agreements. If XX has a specific meaning on this auction, such as a demand to pass, or t/o of spades, then failing to ...
It Happened One Day
NH, There is no allegation in the OP. It states that dummy illegally communicated information to declarer *during* the hand, that is a fact, not an allegation. If it can be shown that there has been a pattern of similar behavior by the same pair, you can call it whatever ...
