Cheating on BBO can not be prevented. Anyone who claims they can is being funny at best.
Cheating in F2F bridge at highest levels has been rampant forever,
I know they say have under control now but do they really or are we just waiting for next bomb?

You act surprised or offended ACBL has no interest in anything you say? Hope it didn't take you 23 years to figure that out.
I had a profile but deleted but most on here know me and if a spelling a convention wrong on BBO upset you, you should never read anything I post.

You know directing is very hard at any time but on BBO you have players from many countries and a huge variation in levels.
Now add on fact allot of players new to online bridge and BBO is super busy
I agree lots of bad situations but to come on here and insult them over and over when you have a simple solution don't play!
Think you be missed?
Play at regular tables, set a team game but stop whining and seriously what do you win? Are u so completive that loosing a speedball is worth this stress?
I think enjoy game which I am trying to do and move on.

The Committee discovered that the Director was not called until the round was completed and the players had moved and started play on the subsequent round. The Committee was unable to determine the facts of the case and awarded +300 to East-West and average or the equivalent percentage of their game to N/S.

So committee cant decide because the director was not called to table
What than would merit a weighted score?

Board 1
Why does it not say who players were at table?
Was this last board of a round and were players behind why had they moved to a new table before calling director?
N/S were awarded average or better on this board.
None of this makes sense unless N/S were well known players

The ACBL speedball tournaments which there is at least 1 an hour every day the director do not work for ACBL.
Acbl laws are not followed ex: u receive this message start of every game
Welcome! 1nt is 15-17 unless alerted otherwise

So right away you do not announce 1nt unless other than 15- 17
Hesitations laws are never followed.
You can open 2 clubs strong on any hand director never adjust.

Basically directors are there to keep game moving.

3 to a table means you would sit as close to next person as you would any bridge table?

Richard 60/20/20 sponser gets 20 and has to pay ACBL sanction fees plus all directors expenses, so be more like 60/30/maybe 10
Seems the ones doing all the work and organizing getting the least why not 50{bbo} 10 {acbl} 40 for the workers.

The other concern for BBO doing this work what happens when this is over? Will regionals stay on BBO or just go back to F2F.

I like idea that open 1nt with 5 card major as long as I hold 3 of other major.
That way not transferred to a 5 2 fit always 5 3 because otherwise I open 1nt holding Akxxx xx Akx Kxx and partner transfer holding xxx xxxxx xxx xxx.

In Quebec children have returned to school stores opened.
In Ontario store have today started to reopen businesses that can work from home should but many can't. What do you suggest they do?
Churches are very important in people's life's shd they stay closed.
Ontario has now allowed all sports to open for major leagues.
There are guidelines but life has to get on to the new norm.
So simple question your job allows you to work from home what do you do with the millions who job doesn't?

You are missing an important part of clubs for many people socialization.
As you age activities become limited and socialization is one of them.
Online works for bridge functions for many but not all.
If you live alone sitting in front of a computor all day may not be healthiest thing for you.
Live clubs will, survive exact same as casinos churches and social events.
