Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
FWIW quite a few cheats that won World Series of poker championships didn’t have their titles removed after the fact but the banners of their faces have been taken down from the competition area. And those people stole a lot more than titles. Everyone knows now which players were ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
if someone wants to cheat at my level, good luck to them. bizarrely probably better for me as will have to raise my game! But of course i don't like to see cheating anywhere. just meant that the people at the top don't care about the issue enough ...

The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Thx again for all the hard work & sharing. 2 questions. Why do you think they never “balanced their range” by going for a number occasionally (when up comfortably in a match or something” and made such blatantly u justifiable bidding decisions based upon shape, when simply knowing whether pard was ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Ah ok, sorry thought you wrote a footnote that said bridge writers make a pittance of a living or something like that hence the offer.
