Suspicious Play

Unfortunately, virtual bridge can include suspicious play and the temptation to cheat is greater than in face-to-face bridge.  Some players talk on the phone, others are in the same room as their partner when playing.  Any form of cheating is not acceptable.  Fortunately, most players are honest and every pair can have a run of luck that seems unusual. The ACBL takes cheating seriously and they do have mechanisms for reviewing and analyzing hands.  As players our role is to send ACBL the links to any hands that seem suspicious.  This can be done completely anonymously.  In your History (after the game) find the hand in question and click on the blue “hamburger”, select Export and then Send Abuse Report.  This will go to ACBL and they will review the hand and begin to watch the players.  If the ACBL deems them to be cheating, they will notify the players and the Unit board.
