Monday Nights Online Bridge

Cheating

CHEATING

Message to all those playing online on NIBUBBO platform

to be communicated to all players and published on club websites

 

Because of the prevalence of unethical and dishonest behaviour by a small minority of online bridge players, the NIBU has asked the club to remind you about requirements for ethical behaviour at all times. There are daily reports of people perceived to be deliberately CHEATING when playing online. All members should be in no doubt that the NIBU is taking this issue extremely seriously and there will be consequences for anyone found to be cheating. 

Club TDs or Online Managers should endeavour to ensure that all players are aware of what actions as acceptable and which are definitely not – e.g. providing explanations in the chat area for partner to see as well as opponents is NOT acceptable, the alert area only should be used

Clubs playing on the NIBU platform are required to note the following:

 

1.  

All players must enter their real names in their user profile. Preferably enter both names but a First name only is acceptable

 

2.  

If visitors are playing in a club the club must have the visitors’ NIBU Membershipnumber

 

3.

4.  

Local Master Points will be awarded in accordance with the NIBU Master Point Scheme for all events.

a) Confirm to their club that they have read this document.

d) Ensure that they always play according to the rules of our game

Due to the ongoing situation, the Committee of Brunswick Bridge Club has decided to suspend the club until, it is safe to return.

We will, of course, carefully monitor the situation and let you know when we consider it safe to return to the game we all love.

We did not take this decision lightly but the safety of our members is our prime consideration.

Be safe and be well.
