Blatant bug in daylong tourney
Posted 2017-April-03, 11:33
At one deal, the bidding was completed and I was in the middle of the play when I had to interrupt the game.
Later logged on again (same userid, but from laptop web-browser) to continue...
I was then served the same hand I interrupted, but FROM THE BEGINNING of the hand,
and could bid the hand differently while knowing exactly what cards pd had.
Looks like a bug (not a feature ) that needs to be urgently fixed, obviously.

But, afaiu, it is the bbo-server totally controlling the robots?
No robot actions are determined in the client, right?
If this is correct,
every bid or card played by a robot must always have originated from the server,
and thus be registered there.
So, bad wifi or not, should then not have any bearing for this bug.

The bad wifi isn't related to the bug, it's just the reason why I logged out and logged back in later. The bug is that you can disconnect in the middle of a hand and the system forgets where you were.
Daylongs and challenges are done very differently from our traditional tourneys. Instead of the server keeping all the state in memory, it's saved in a database, and apparently this database isn't being updated properly when you logout in the middle of a hand.

I promise you that the last three weeks in India, I played some BBO going home from work, even in Bangalore traffic. Trust me, I wasn't driving!
