VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
Al- I don't think the juice is worth the squeeze. Applying a VP penalty is somewhat draconian and a pair who felt they were unfairly penalized will lead to a minimum of bad feelings. It will go a LONG way to NOT providing an enjoyable experience for all, neither ...
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
It think to clarify the issue at hand, when a match goes late it is detrimental to the enjoyment of all other teams not involved as the next Round Robin is delayed. Aside from sending the best team to the WC, an excellent, enjoyable event for all is a significant ...
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
Good idea, probably not implementable. There are cameras at every table but this event is run by dedicated unpaid volunteers. We would need more volunteers to implement the very good suggestion you make so I think the solution is unworkable. Even if we could do it, without guidelines as to ...
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
Actually, although I wasn't talking about it specifically, there is often a discussion at the table about what they are going to play against out unusual system or "Crazy Stuff" as one World Class expert put it before the match starts. Essentially our "crazy stuff" is a forcing 1D ...

Peter, We need some way to adjudicate the time spent explaining unusual methods else it will be a can of worms for the directors to untangle the situation where lots of questions are asked. I felt my proposal was a compromise NOT requiring anyone to memorize the opponents relays but ...
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
Brad, I think gaming the system is a possibility but I think an acceptable tradeoff to getting the round-robins to end on time. Already it is possible to game the system. Once the directors indicated that our opponents had a history of slow play we could have slowed down and ...

I recommend the following to be added to the "I free bite" poll. Probably better words are needed but I think everyone will get the idea. 1.If you are playing a relay you are expected to know the relay and bid it in a reasonable tempo. Time spent remembering ...

I suggest you put the "1 free bite" rule to a vote. Tom
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
Unfairness is what I am concerned with However, I think your idea would work and is kind of what the directors seem to be doing now, identifying slow pairs by history. The "1 free bite" rule would simply quantify the penalty. The logic is that if a pair is slow ...
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
In my view it will be very difficult to adjudicate if only one pair is at fault and the result will be that both pairs are penalized, one incorrectly. I can just imagine the issues created and the effect on the directors when they choose to penalize one team and ...
