Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
lets require players to upload their notes and then force them to play those notes verbatim when out of quarantine. (joke)
A New Type Of Venue
I like this idea! I was recently discussing with another player, having a European Football style bracketing where you might play premier league with the highest rated 8 teams and brackets of 8 heading downward. This might be a way to create the Strata that divided these groups and then ...

The cars were bounced after an incident in Tenerife at the Europeans 2005. They (supposedly?) had already been guilty for years if not decades, simply never convicted. While I do believe people should have a chance to repent and be rehabilitated, I find it problematic that one might cheat for ...
Anti cheating committee
