  1. know that it is not easy to be a director in these times.
    I know that partners do converse with each other.
    I know that when someone marks themselves as novice they could be a teacher, or when one partner makes a forcing bid and after their own private conversations they can skew the bidding and I could go on and on…and it’s happened to my partners and me.
    BUT…when the majority of players are in the same contract and we get fixed by a situation like this and we ask for a ruling…it is the same ruling every time…partners can do what ever they want…we can’t control that… I wonder to myself again and again why you bother to pay them if they don’t do anything.
    For eg. Bidding such as (opp)…1c - 1d, 1nt( with 4 spades and 4 hearts, 4c and 1d), pass by his partner who has 4 spades….they got a top while everyone else is in spades.
    OR
    1sp - 1 nt (forcing), pass…for a top for opp
    This is frustrating! And NOT at all enjoyable.
    After nearly 2 years one would think you could get a better handle on all these situations and maybe it’s time the directors read out the riot act.
    I have been on bridge base since it’s inception, I spend about 100$ every 6 weeks . For my money I would hope to have more controls and better game quality by BBO.
    Thank you for letting me vent!
    I far preferred bbo to okbridge but maybe?????
    And I am talking for many of my partners. ( I play approximately 4 x a week with partners and at least 1 other game a day)
