Score adjustment in teams
We had a multi teams event, and we were sharing boards. So some tables would not be playing the boards in order. We had the option set (from our usual pairs events) to suggest the board number (would have been good to turn this off). However, whereas everyone was warned about this, and East / Wests were told to be diligent about checking. On a couple of occasions say board 6 was scored in the place of board 4, and so after the scores are entered - you can see the other results on board 4 which you haven't yet played. (again we should have turned on the option to not display previous scores). So board 4 becomes unplayable at this table.
So - I have two questions - are both sides equally at fault - NS for entering the score for board 6 against board 4, and E/W for not checking, before accepting.
If that is the case - then my reading of Law 86B2c - states that if both sides are at fault, the board is cancelled. As I said this happened twice, and in both occasions a particularly good result was obtained for one side - ie in one situation at the 'other' table, the result was 6NT-2, and all other tables were making 3NT with or without an overtrick. and in the other board in Question all results were 4H making, and in the one with no result at the other table, it was 5H-1.
Am I correct in reading that the law will only reward a good result at the other table, where only one side was at fault ?
