Entry result in Bridgmate, in a wrong board number
I would like to be aware of what is your practice in England, in every day club sessions, and in national tournaments sessions, when following incidents happens..
Assume you use Bridgmates for entering results, and you have enable the option to show frequencies, and maybe hands and even analysis of each board. What happens regularly in Greece at some tables, is that players entry one result in a wrong board number, which automatically means that they are aware of the results of another, not played yet, board!
First case, they are just surprised of the results and go play the next one, until later they try to enter the result of the correct board, and BM will display the message that board is already played, so they call you.
Second case, they realize it at once, so they call you before they play the board in which they have noticed some or all of the results.
A) We tend to retrieve scores, so do we let them play, even of what they have seen?
Is there any offender, or they are both, as NS enters scores and EW accepts? If you decide to assign an artificial score (unfortunately, as WBFLC tends by all means nowadays to avoid it), what will be the score? 40-40, 50-40, 60-40, 50-50?
