I get very frustrated when asked by the opposition if they can change their bid even when there have been 2 passes and they see that their partner hasn't understood their bid so they want another go. I'm not talking about beginners, I'm talking about advanced players. If you refuse they boot you. It's so wrong. What can we do about it? Thanks for any help

PS I hope this is the right forum It's my first time in the forums.

Hi,
I think it's the wrong forum, but they'll move it.
You're right to refuse of course, and they are wrong to boot you.
Unfortunately BBO is very reluctant to curtail the power to boot or even monitor it's (ab)use.

Play games with your friends rather than with randos

I've moved this to the General BBO Forum. General Bridge Forum is for discussions that are relevant to f2f bridge.

In the Main Bridge Club, the table host sets the rules. Some prefer to play more informally, allowing undoes of almost anything. If you don't like it, host your own table. You can also mark the table host as "Ignore", then you won't be seated automatically at their table again.

Other than eggregious abuse like rude language, BBO doesn't generally intervene.

I've also merged the two threads you started. Please only post once.
