Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
I certainly agree with your second sentence. As to the first, was/is there a counter-argument in support of self-kibitzing somewhere?
Opening standards: LTC vs Point Count
Losing Trick Count The name itself says it all.
2020 North American Online Bridge Championships
Which of these numbers is higher? The # of times a partner/teammates has driven to the wrong location, retired due to illness/emergency, or even was late to the event OR the number of connection issues on BBO today. Hint: it's the 2nd one. It seems improbable that there ...
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
I don't dispute that there are ethical/disclosure issues with online play but in my experience it's not intentional a vast majority of tihe time. Educating players is a nice goal, though not necessarily a realistic one. However, the notion that the "good ole days" of bridge was ...

USBF invitational 1: My adventures on BBO part 3
If it's any consolation (which i'm sure it's not), they'd have made it in 3 seconds at my table as i'd have tracked my 4th best heart -- of course my partnership preempts aren't quite as sound as yours.
FRIEDLAND Disqualified From Reynolds Spring KO
Imposing a delay is a possibility but is that really kibitzing or just looking at vugraph records? The pace of play in most events is so glacial that's often what i wind up doing anyway so i'm not opposed to the idea, it's akin to watching a ...
