Is this psyche legal?
Marty Harris: I would prefer to see terms like "flat out cheating" reserved for a completely different class of activities. IMHO, an incorrect explanation does not qualify. There is a difference between INTENDING to mislead ones opponents via an explanation (the intent there is cheating, and I think is rare ...

Nicolas: If you are interested, see my reply to David Caprera upthread, regarding the matter of computing VPs in segments rather than once on the whole match.
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
