VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
0/3/6/10 seems steep. I'd prefer 0/1/3/5 or so..
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
No strong feelings, hence my abstention. How about not allowing new boards with ~ 3 minutes on the clock? You are guaranteed to be late with any start after that. Also, if there is no penalty for unclear slow play, shouldn't there be a penalty for repeated offenses?
Pontificate on a Common Game deal
2 seems clear if 3 next shows 4 and longer s.
Who should 'scape whipping?
Would you pass with the same honors and 3244?
Who should 'scape whipping?
Kx in s?
Combatting slow play
No mights about it. It would definitely speed up the game to a level where more boards could be played.
Combatting slow play
Eric: That might matter more in a win/loss scenario. Winning 2-0 on a VP scale isn't much different from the 3 IMPs from winning by 16 versus 13 for example.
Combatting slow play
The easiest way to speed up the game would to eliminate the bonus for overtricks (At IMP's only). Just automatically score all making contracts as +1. This would not apply to doubled contracts. Slams would not receive the overtrick.
Slow Play in Round Robin
That solution unintentionally rewards the slow players with even more time to be slow...
Struggling on high level
Obviously (to me) the + means unlimited..
