Delayed Viewing - Best of Both Worlds
I have nothing against the commentators working on the delayed broadcast. I was mainly speaking to the point that it might be hard to implement.
Cheating on BBO
Marion, who was the opening bidder on the hand? You, or some other hand?
Cheating on BBO
I guess you are saying that your LHO was the only player that did not open with his hand?
USBF Open invitational
In the Reynolds events our wording is: Undo's are only for purely "mechanical misclicks". They are not for "change of mind" or "playing too fast". Perhaps we should add not for "inattention" to that list.
Cheating on BBO
BBO says they have archived all hands. So far, I have not seen or heard of any use of that.
Delayed Viewing - Best of Both Worlds
Much of the time the kibitzers can't chat to all or some of the commentators as it is now.
Jim Fox's bidding problem: 92 AJ654 QJ A854
Matchpoints? You didn't know your partner was going to bid 5D.
Delayed Viewing - Best of Both Worlds
Daniel, if you believe that talk back and forth between kibitzers and commentators is important, then you are correct. I am not convinced of that.
Delayed Viewing - Best of Both Worlds
I don't understand why it (the delay) should be hard to implement. Just have commentators do what they do normally; record everything in a secure, isolated way and start the feed to the audience 30 minutes later. Should look exactly the same as it normally would. I'm sure ...
No Open World Championships Until 2024?
Not alone, but a serious minority. Define "virtue signaling".
