  1. Today my partner and I played in the big love tournament (1:40) We came against a pair who bid 7S on board 14. They could only make 4S. I had the AD and the AS and my partner had the AC. I lead the AD and the pair sat and let the lock run down. They got 50% on the board. I called the director, however, the score did not change. To me, that is a form of cheating. We would not have gotten points today. That is not my concern. It is that people are getting away with letting the clock run down to ensure they get a better score than if they play the hand. It also ensures that the opps do not get the score they deserve.

  2. I can't find the Zodiac Love Boat Daylong Survivor anywhere to register. What am I missing? Did it fill up? I do see the Singles Cocktail Daylong Survivor so it doesn't seem like I'm doing something wrong. Thanks!

  3. losrque en est en attente de ramplaçemant aimerai avertissement SONORE car on ne peut pas regarder l'écran tout le temps.

  4. it seems to me :
    outside the US/states, most of the players on BBO is from Poland
    but the polish language does not exist here, I don't see this language
    It's a pity because I don't understand anything 🙂

  5. Hi - I've managed to pull together 9 teams to play on the Love Boat on 14th February. I wonder if there's any way that I can request for my teams to be playing against each other? If so, could you possibly let me know what I need to do? Thanks. Julia
