I lost the suit symbols in the reformatting, so "?" means some suit contract.

It's looks very suspicious to, probably the two humans were colluding to throw all the scores one way, so thank you for not naming names here. Several doubled and redoubled slams by NS making, a number of redoubled contracts with overtricks, while the doubled and redoubled contracts the other way all went down several. This is much too freaky to be just a lucky run.

Board 15 could just be an attempt to throw us off the track. I don't think it will work. If you'd like to send the names to abuse@bridgebase.com, that would be helpful.

I couldn't show this without showing the names, but most of the hands where declarer took 13 tricks were early claims, with defense conceding despite holding guaranteed tricks.

I was kind of surprised, but your "impressive" comment made it seem like you took this at face value. I guess what you found impressive was that they bothered to spend 25 minutes at this futile exercise.

Nah, I was just irritated because I played one of these boards, and this ridiculous score was included... I considered labeling them Human1a and Human1b, because my first thought was that it was one person trying to pad his stats for some reason. Too bad they stopped updating bboskill; he would have been world class, for sure :P

I'm amused that Human1's profile includes "BBO TD".

Yeah, as there are no ratings it does seem rather pointless. I suppose they were just trying to see how many average IMPs it was possible to transfer.

This sounds rather like a hand which I reported recently to Abuse@, which certainly fell under the category of 'impressive' :unsure: . This was a hand played by four humans, no robots, and I didn't discover any suspicious pattern in the humans' play, apart from this hand. Nevertheless, opening bidder called 1, and their partner, missing three aces, raised immediately to 7NT. Which made. The hands totalled 33 HCP.

I'd played the same hand myself: this is how I came to be interested in the result and examine it. Without cheating :lol: , we reached and made 6NT with an overtrick.
