This (1-1; 1 as NT or ) was in the Weichsel-Sontag “Power Precision” book late 70s.

Thanks for posting. Great analysis. I like the last sentences, 9 years ago, we are there now.

So far we have the entire Schwartz team, Auken, Welland and Puszinsky showing some moral backbone and class. We have Jimmy Cayne displaying some honor. We have the statement from Zimmerman basically condoning cheating. We have Helgemo being non-committal and deferring to Zimmerman.

As for the rest, let us hope once there are formal verdicts they start doing the right thing. I am not holding my breath waiting for that to happen.

Zuchelli coached Fantoni, Nunes and Versace as juniors. He was appointed as the junior coach of Italy when Rona was boss there. This was 1988 and some other year.

So the 30 sec pause meant: “Gosh, If I show my strong hand with spade support we get too high. If I dont show it we get to the wrong denomination. What should I choose?? Oh well, 1NT makes partner less interested in high spade contracts”. 30 secs is about right for that choice.

We have to give the same concern to the other 21 teams also. Protecting the one team who qualidied with a cheating pair is not ok IMHO. That team also knew ZB were suspicious for many years.

Meat Loaf did sing “Two out of three aint bad”. Guess it should have been “Four out of five are really bad”! The resemblance to the Cavendish 2012 is scary. Big money bring big cheats.

I love all the pictures with Fulvio and Rona. Throughout their bridge careers they have been close! A beautiful friendship.

Great Video. The music choice brings other Indoor activities to mind though ;)

I was thinking about paragraph 3.3 here: http://www.eurobridge.org/eligibility-code.aspx

I realize that it is in some ways a rubber paragraph when money talks!

This paragraph confuses me: “At the present time, all the cases of accusation of cheating are under disciplinary proceedings in the EBL, in the ACBL and in the associated NBOs being in their competence, and will have the related verdicts.”

Shouldnt there be an ‘or’ somewhere there given Monaco and Poland deferring to the EBL? As for “… being in their competence …” I have no clue what he means.

Thomas is a wise man also. The Monaco Project has a naturally limited life span. Being stuck there for 10 years after expiration date (bridgewise) is not the best idea for someone who wants to compete at the highest level of the game. I think France has a great crop of younger players who will win titles for many years.

It is strange that not one of the polish team in Chennai nor The official of the PBU has noticed The ZB rumour during 30 years.

“… We are certain that every honest bridge player which will examine our rebuttal document …” Would be great to publish it then, right?

I always wondered who FS practiced with. Guess we know soon.

Are you saying there are people who believe FS to be innocent?
