As I mentioned in another thread, it looks like the problem is that your connection to our servers is too slow. The client doesn't allow very long to get the response to the request for an explanation. We're investigating solutions to this.

Yes,my connection have been so bad and unstable recently (same are too many chinese players actually),sometimes faster,sometimes very slow.

Based on my observations,I think it seems likely that the reason is unstable network.For example:



While I need log time to get response,I never have seen any bid without explanations.
For this hand,when Gib N bid 2 quickly,I also click 4 rapidly,however no explanations even though fast connection.so connection instability may be a main reason.

Can we please reserve this thread for discussion of GIB's convention card?

There are several inaccuracies in GIB's convention card that have been pointed out in this forum that have never been corrected or updated.

Sorry about that. We tried updating the card last year, and it disappeared entirely, so I reverted it, and haven't figured out what went wrong.

would it be possible to put on the RKC alert WHICH version the GIBs use? I can never remember if it's 1430 or 3014; no way to make player notes for the GIBS and it's really frustrating/irritating to miss a slam because I forgot which version they use and answered wrong.

Hi all,
Does anyone have a complete bidding tree (like FD card complexity) of the GIB system available for free download somewhere, or a way to make such a file from the FD automatically? I am playing that CC, and no longer play robot tournaments so want to have something to study.

Thanks,
Dan

It plays 3014. If you can't remember, just hover your mouse over the bid before clicking on it, and it will display the meaning.
