Hi Michael
I would have definitely called the director on this hand!
As Rosenberg says it appears there are 14 spades in the deck!

Hi Jan,
Yes Nicolas would not include this hand as there is bidding by B and Z.
If there is no bidding on the other 3 hands and Z doesn't move the lead card then it would be interesting to see if B makes any hand gestures. If he does then according to this theory would show his number of hearts.

Great job Nicolas!

After many days of trying to convince Kit about this Brad Moss then spent hours on the phone to Kit trying to convince him, (which he eventually did), that the best way to show FN were using illegal signals was using this pattern which Kit then eventually published under his article titled:

I can confirm that as far as I am concerned Jan has not only been “interested” every step of the way, but also has made me confident that the EBL are handling these matters as quickly and efficiently as they can.

Joel
You basically reiterated exactly what I wrote about getting them to do some work to catch other cheaters. I have not let them of lightly and it is not my decision to do so anyway.

I just want to clarify the comment I had made with Brad about how brave it was for Alex and Joseph to come forward. The following are my personal thoughts only.
They have saved the organisations a large amount of money in bringing forward a case that will have sufficient evidence to get a conviction. I never once said anything about only a two year ban and imo I think that is a light sentence. However to say things like two years for murder?, and, ban them for life, in my opinion are just as ridiculous as a two year ban.
We want to encourage any other pairs who have been cheating to come forward and save the leg work for the soldiers who are still trying to collect enough evidence to bring a case to the authorities. Also I need some sleep!
I also think it is important for Alex and Joseph to tell the authorities how they cheated so things can be put in place in the future for those who try to cheat.
Those who are found guilty and have not come forward could be banned for life but those who come forward and save all our time and money could get less.
Maybe a pair could get a reduction if they work for the relevant bodies in helping catching other cheaters.

This must have been a very hard decision for the two of you to make and Brad and I think it was very brave of you and we look forward to the day that you can return to the game
Signed Brad Moss and Ish Del'Monte

I have read your well written post Sabine and understand where you are coming from. The feelings you and your team are going through cannot be easy.
I feel the need to say something regarding the “third pair”
Your title says “the third pair” implying it is well known who this third pair is.
I want the bridge world to know that if you are out there and are not cheating now but have cheated in the past and are on Video we encourage you to come forward before you are caught. If this happens I am sure the penalty imposed will be much light than the ones for those who continue to deny the allegations as you will save a lot of time and money for the organizations. However while I do hope there is no more to be found, Sabine, you rest assured that we are looking at many “third pairs”. What Boye has done is get this great bridge community of ours to look after our own and we are all looking at different pairs. No one is safe until this game is cleaned up!

Hi John,
No I don't know that one. On the low club lead from Kx against Norway, David Gold, a friend of mine told me
LF says after the 6s where ron leads a club from kx….Lotan yells in Hebrew : “I cant play like this… Go take a break”

Hi David,
I understand your point. I didn't say that. I said he leads quickly which avoids his partner making a signal and the possibility of being caught.

Thanks Jeff!
I just added a link further up about the Norway match where Fisher asks for a heart but he keeps the tray to close to him so Schwartz gets confused and thinks he wants a club so leads a low club from Kx. Its pretty funny as at the end of the hand Fisher has a talk under the screen with Schwartz. One can only imagine what they are talking about!
Here is link and the time stamp is at 1.07.45:

They have already decided to have at least 12 tables on camera in India!

Yes someone should have done it already! There have been so many complaints about them and it is hard to imagine that nothing was done until Boye started this crusade. I'm sorry you lost Boye but I am also very glad you did if that makes sense.
Gonzalo I have spent at least 30-40 hours once I “knew” and at least twice that gathering information. I have a lot of video footage from other events also.
