ACBL BoD Votes Possibility of NO NABC+ Winners Ever
Unless a private individual is willing to pay for it, nobody expects an NBO to devote an enormous amount of time and effort. Nobody has suggested complete fairness as a feasible target. There are likely to be more cheating scandals, however, so it would obviously be worthwhile to appoint a ...

Depriving cheats of their ill-gotten gains is the first step in the right direction. It's harder, but more important, to provide their victims with redress. Honest players have been deprived of fair competition, for which they paid. Some have been robbed of placings and awards. Arguably, an official, who ...

NBO's seem to go to any length to avoid hassle. Hence, it's no surprise that they suck up to cheats. They are even more timid than Bridge law-makers. Arguably, WBF laws reward infraction and eschew deterrence. Nevertheless, at least, they embrace so-called [b][i]Equity[/i][/b] (attempting ...

Teams/Pairs with convicted cheats should be deprived of placings/titles Other teams/pairs should be moved up the pecking-order and awarded vacated titles. Organisations which fail to do this are depriving cheat's victims of legitimate rights. Of course, there are difficulties in retrospectively doing this, especially in KOs ...

Had the cheats not played, we can't be sure what would have happened. But that's insufficient reason to deny their victims redress. The authorities should still do their best to restore a semblance of justice. Crude, their efforts might be; but surely better than deliberately penalizing the honest ...

O/D Parity and Total Tricks
Thank you, Ping Hu. IMO, the Law of total tricks is a useful rule-of thumb and your fresh viewpoint is interesting and illuminating.
