Unfortunately, we still have plenty of the old model.

Should we plan for a change?

Bridge credibility is going down the sink.

Quite clear and useful.

Makes sense to you?

Boye made the ball rolling but, without help, I don't think he could have achieved much.

I meant to raise a different argument. You can prove a pair cheat by breaking their code and verifying its use.

OTOH you can't prove innocence. How could you?

A logical consequence is that anyone accused to cheat will carry a spot on his reputation lifetime.

This speaks loudly in favor of prevention.

Might electronic play be a future? I think so. Even if, admittedly, some very lovable game aspects will be lost.

First of all: I went to college. I studied math. I studied statistics. I love both. Still, there's way more in bridge than math and statistics. It's a game of logic.

Think about this. In whatever contract you're playing, your opponent leads the spade 7. Which are the odds he holds AKQ of hearts? A mathematician will come out with a figure somewhere close to 10%. A bridge player will give a different answer: zero. Why? Because he/she didn't lead one of them. It's a matter of logic.

Back now to the deals posted by Boye and Thomas. Being a bridge player, I'm sorry to say that, from my standpoint, the chance they're not cheating is exactly zero.

But, of course, anyone is completely free to disagree.
