Michael I really appreciate your comment: Yes, I played two tournaments with Claudio Nunes, both recently. Before this two tournaments I usually met him as an opponent, I hated him at the table and we fought. Loyally. (And I almost always lost!) I can assure you that, for various reasons, we were not at all sympathetic. When I saw the “videos speak”, a part of me was happy. Only one side and now I'll explain you why. I’ve to open a parenthesis: I have a law degree and I am studying to become a public notary. To be a good notary there are two rules: only trust the documents, not to cheer for anyone. I've seen only your documents, I would like to read the defenses of the accused, I would also like to talk a little about bridge and not only about statistics (see a few hands, not just some leads). I started to get interested in the story, to read every day bridgewinners (seeing many positive things for the bridge but also scandals subsequently shown not real). I was cheering for boye and for all of you, blinded by a thirst for revenge. I tried then to no longer cheer for anyone..
I talked with Claudio Nunes, we played also two tournaments together even winning one.
Are you asking me what I think of the story? I'm sorry but I'm not a judge.
Are you asking me how I wish it were the end of the story? Not guilty. I want the truth like all of you, but I'd like also a fair trial, ensuring equal rights of defense.
And now, please, don’t judge me.

I think that somebody is missing the point: with this post I just wanted to ask Boye (which I warmly thank for his reply) why he accused FS and FN of something (changing the result of a board) without being sure.
We are not doubting in this thread about the “videos speak” (which are in just slightly better quality than the ones I found).
In my far from perfect English (sorry about that) I used serene terms, offending nobody (using terms like shill, buffoon…)
Don't worry guys: I am just a bridge player.

“Peg. I know that Jan is amazing running the vugraph. I have nothing bad to say about her - always had the best impression both of her and you - and I believe she states the facts as she experienced it. On the other hand I know what I watched live on BBO three floors away. I know that commentators asked the operator what the bid was (remember the operator was at the table, Jan wasn't). I know that Jan checked with the operator a couple of boards later and he still stated that the bid was 4 spades. I know that if the bid actually was 4 spades (the ACBL should do their utmost to come to the core of what happened, not just accepting the explanation of two cheating pairs), Fisher & Schwartz just couldn't have it on their resume. It would be the same foot print as if they led the king of diamonds from Kx against 3 NT when having KQJ109 of spades. I just want to find out what really happened, knowing there is no way to prove it one way or the other except checking the video tapes carefully. ACBL: Be nike and just do it!” (Boye Brogeland, Oct. 19, 2015, “Poland should not have played in the Bermuda Bowl.”)

During the bidding you can also hear two coughs, but it is unclear by whom.

Timo, perhaps Nicolas will make Alfredo an offer that he can not refuse!
Life it's different ;)

It's not true that Italy has won just because of its better defence.
Since always BD LV and FN have been three pairs of champions, no matter what someone can think. They have been head and shoulders above anybody else in bidding (except maybe for Meckwell).
And just thanks to the sponsors thay had found, like Angelini and Lavazza, they could make a profession out of bridge.
Now around the world people play conventions that VL and BD played 10 years ago. Writing this post you are tainting the history of bridge. Estoril's hands are all published so everybody can have a look.
Don't try to erase history just because you wish it had gone in a different way.

Mr Hammond answered: “Two other Italian pairs. Not F/N.”
So Mr Weber you're wrong.

N.H., be brave and tell us the name of the pairs you want to convict. Italians who played in Opatja are champions above any suspect.
