What I find very wrong is to release the name of the medication - this is, in my opinion and understanding of Law, a violation of Helgemo's privacy.

Nothing like it, but in some situations it's giving important information and it's easy to see which is the doubt. If the obvious shift is not followed after the hesitation, it's legally ok, and I think it's not right.

I prefer to support instead of 1NT, over 1D, but if it has to be 3, I'm not sure.

I like the auction and see no problem on it. The hand could be cold for 6D and bidding 3NT would be a mistake. Also, 5D could be better, I don't see why any of the players should bid differently.

We see this everytime by many pairs and there's no effective protection from it. The top “bullshit” is the statement: “I'm thinking about the whole hand.”. We see many top pairs using what the mistaken regulations allow them to use with the excuse that they aren't doing anything wrong, but we know what's going on.

My “So what?” was to the info that he is back in the game.

Playing with me at the Spingold, he smoothly led low from Axxxx against 4S (the only lead that could possibly beat). The hand was played by Bobby Levin - who very well guessed it - having KJxx in Dummy and xx in his hand. We all said the same: “Good lead, Russ (Steve, Bobby and Me). Well done, Bobby (Russ, Steve and Me).” They made some jokes (Russ and Bobby) about the lead and the guess, after the hand - the best sportsmanship you can have.

I agree, Brad - we probably have convicted people of much worst crimes living around us and we don't keep on chasing them forever - it's a mistake to do it. Make sure they understand this is no place for this kind of behaviour and if they keep on doing, then we have a good reason to ban forever. And we will notice, that's for sure - we can see when there's some “black magic” in the air. What we really have to do is to maintain an environment where players don't even think about start cheating - that's our main goal.

“one of a kind” - I don't know how to edit it

And again we see some people saying what's right and what's wrong here, but I am sure that most of the “finger pointers” are just jealous people - a bunch of wannabes pretending they know a lot and are aware of other players reasonings. I find it very hard for some of this people to do anything good at the bridge table.

The lead is not illegal, here, there, or wherever.

I thought you said that they were unfair to appeal and that their result wasn't worth of.

Csaba, I agree with everything you said, except the part where you said that they are the guys that won the Blues with an unfair appeal. I would never call director in this case, but I don't call even when there's a revoke - I find it ugly to win a trick or two I don't deserve because of a mechanical mistake. But, we are not the same and some people is too connected with the rules and regulations - something I find very superficial -, but it doesn't mean their victory is tainted, the rules and regulations that protect them or the ones that took the decision are the ones to blame.
