Feature request: can you implement minibridge as well?
Would a 20-30 minute spectator delay impact BBO events in any meaningful way?
@Greg: if the stream is posted to YouTube with appropriate license (e.g. Creative Commons) than anyone who wanted to could do the editing.
Would a 20-30 minute spectator delay impact BBO events in any meaningful way?
I am a weak amateur, but to me bridge is more similar to chess than to poker: it makes more sense to have a limit on the total thinking time over the round rather than a shot clock. In other words, it's better to make time management an element ...

I have no tournament bridge experience, but the chess answer to "what if we have several 10-minute hands" is that your level of play depends on the time allotted. It is completely understood that if you reach a complicated position with little time on the clock you might make a ...
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
I assume these are android or iOS tablets rather than full-fledged PCs. In that case put an air-gapped PC under the table and connect it to the tablets with four USB cables. You can then "reverse tether": use the PC as a network bridge between the tablets. The advantage of ...
