Whilst all players polled said they would bid 3, none felt that S was fielding however. In addition no further action was taken by the director, the result was left to stand.

The regulations where this event took place require that the psych must be reported by the player making the pysch and put in a register.
As N there was no special agreement with South on third seat openings. I play one game a year with that partner and never psyched with her before. East is aware I have psyched against him in other events previously.
East bid in tempo as did South and West

The other question asked was “are EW damaged by the Psych when they get a 60% score on the board as it is for five off (+250) ?

Additionally What are the new WBF rules on the question of psyching
”Is it for the director to punish the psych bidder or to restore a position of what would of otherwise happened without the psych ?

Ben, surely you can do better than post hearsay and anecdotal commentary ? …“from someone I trust…” Rather like a claim from a Bernie Madoff salesman

As the organiser of the 5th Commonwealth Games, who facilitated the interview with Liam and President Rona, I sat through the interview and everything was open for discussion. No subject was off limits or ducked. In addition at the event there was another long filmed interview and a live radio broadcast. Have no doubt about this fact, President Rona cares and loves the game, like we all do. It is his so called disciples, being the players, who have cheated, and left him to clear up the mess.

Attached is a link written by JoAnn Sprung with a comment by Barry Rigal.

When is it time for the ACBL to come and visit an event that continues to grow in size and is in receipt of such plaudits, especially Barry Rigal.

Honing ideas from around the Bridge must be good for your invidious role with the ACBL ?

Is there much to learn from the success of others ?

You may also want to ask Brent Manley about the event as he has been involved with the tournament for as long as Barry Rigal. Brent I see is a regular correspondent at ACBL bulletins

best regards

Not an unreasonable course of action taken. It was a clear instruction on entering the building that a specific action will be taken if the directive not followed. No doubt entering the secure area was of your own free will ? I see no reason why a similar model cannot be enforced by Bridge authorities if you wish to play at their event…..is carrying a mobile phone the same constitutional right to carrying a firearm ….for some in the bridge community it would seem so

Jeff

Thank you like everyone else returning to the well

Reading that you plan to come to Australia and New Zealand is wonderful and is your only visit to date to the Yeh Cup about 10 years ago?

It would be excellent if an Australian visit tied into the Gold Coast Congress which has established a reputation as one of the “world's best” amongst a number of influential Bridge commentators including Barry Rigal, Brent Manley and David Stern.

I did sit on your dinner table at the Yeh Cup not that I would expect you to remember as i was the treasurer of the event. A pity then that your schedule did not allow a longer stay

Just wondering what age will you start teaching your grandson what cards are all about !

Many thanks

As a world class player the maximum penalty possible should apply

Come and play at the Gold Coast Event in Australia in 2017 and see how the score problem resolving works in real time with 500 tables in play. http://www.qldbridge.com/gcc/index.php

I am confident that the actual and perceived problems in Poland at the World Championship Finals would have been handled without any difficulty or rancor at the Gold Coast Event

Brian
Given the various alleged issues that happened in Poland and subsequent commentary, if you were President of the WBF, how would you resolve the results issue of the Open and Women's pairs?
Additionally as President how much responsibility for the alleged various issues that appear to have would you hold the players responsible for or your WBF officials for ?
