ACBL considers using Tablets for Premier Events. At the request of the ACBL Advisory Council’s Anti-Cheating Committee, the Competition & Conventions Committee, with approval from the ACBL Board of Directors, has formed a sub-committee to study and prepare to adopt a version of the USBF ‘Martel method’ for use in the later rounds of several ACBL NABC+ team events. The Martel method consists of playing on provided tablets and having two screenmates from each table in separate ballrooms. This method was used successfully last year for the USBF team trials, where it was generally well received, and will be used for them again later this month. Article by David Grainger here →
