Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
Absolutely hate it, to the point that I have stopped playing (used to have 2 regular weekly games). I doubt if anyone could come up with a more counter intuitive, less user friendly mess if they tried.
Asking out of turn

Coffee housing
First, to say that his comment caused the incident assumes facts not in evidence. Secondly, it seems to imply that a valid solution to someone doing something inappropriate at the table is to do something ten times as inappropriate (either that, or it's implying an equivalency between the two ...
Coffee housing
Just wanted to give everyone an update. A 1/4 board PP has now been given to East West for the incident in question. More importantly, I hope that this prevents east from pulling this kind of nonsense on others in the future. ***edited for typo***
