Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
If I were always planning to take a line I don't think I'd try to get a score adjustment (maybe file a recorder if it were blatant), but playing low towards dummy and then deciding what to do based on what both LHO and RHO do seems reasonable ...
Is ACBL Aiming for Ridicule?
I'm happy to see the ACBL listened to the feedback from some of the players who actually participated in this event and lengthened the time you had to complete the boards. To make things even better and address some of the concerns in this thread (although undoubtedly people will ...

Heh, I don't like, but that's fine. To me there is a big difference between optimizing the bidding when opponents do not bid because they likely wouldn't bid and when they don't bid because the model enforces it. How much this affects results I don't ...
For Those Interested in AI and Bridge
If there are eight outstanding hearts and opponents are silent the odds of say an 8-0 split go down or maybe I'm missing something about their approach?
For Those Interested in AI and Bridge
Yes, but if your assumption is that opponents don't compete, but the way you evaluate your results is inconsistent with that assumption how meaningful are the results? I thought the paper was interesting, but to my untrained eye did not seem to have much substance in terms of advancing ...
