about me

I always loved card games and started with Bridge 2008. Not sure what I like more playing or learning, both is fascinating.

My thinking is slow, my understanding limited and my partnership qualities below average.

BBO format
I can only offer you a solution for your language problem. When adding "?lang=fr" you will have it in French or when adding "?lang=en" you will have it in English no matter from where you log in. Example for French: ...
BBO format
Thanks for that description but that will not help for boards from teaching tables or bidding practice as those hands are not part of my hands. I can save them inside of BBO but there is no way to get them out or at least I don't know how.
Scoring errors
My proposal would only need one bridgemate at the table. Just asking an additional button to be pressed after the confirmation to approve it.
Scoring errors
When east/west is confirming the result you could add a check by requesting east/west to enter again the direction of the contract. For deviations that should trigger an error similar to the one with wrong leads. No TD needed to correct errors and only one additional button to ...
Scoring errors
When names are not available it might even help to show "WEST" instead of "W".
