No hidden meaning Ed. If my point of view is not clear it is because of my bad English.

If you Think 5X is the desired contract holding that west hand, underleading Diamonds makes perfect sense.

The interview and the 7NT-hand is very revealing. Adding the machinations around the eligibility when team Monaco was formed and we have the complete picture. The true gentlemen of bridge???

The protest on the 7NT shows all that is wrong with bridge today. Money talks and sportmanship is gone. I suggest the WBF gifts zimmerman his precious Bermuda Bowl and get it over with. I dont want to see them play ever again.

Alternative hypothesis is a very polished way of describing his point of view. I would say alternative universe.

I wonder how anyone would be able to discredit this? Superb work.

Jesper Parnevik, twice 2nd in the British Open and 5 times PGA tour Winner, is a decent bridge player.

Thanks Jan. The reason I mentioned striking off is that none of the other sanctions (warning, suspension, exclusion, banning and monetary fine) seems to make it possible to change results retroactively.

The question I always wanted to ask. I try again. If a pair is found guilty, is a retroactive removal of titles and masterpoint possible? As defined in the WBF or EBL rules. Specifically I refer to the section of the Disciplinary code that says: (chapter 4. Sanctions …) “striking-off of the person concerned (the decision to strike-off can only be made by Congress).” In that case at the 2016 EBL Congress all results can be stricken for all pairs that were found cheating.

The economical reports by the treasurer would be great to see on the EBL site.

So next step is for PBU to analyze this. Finding ZB guilty would then cast a considerable shadow (maybe invalidate) on the recent Polish BB win. An independent committe would be so much better.

I think it is time for those who were there to describe the “Mobile Phone Incident” where Lothan Fisher showed his real colors. What he did is actually a crime and should have been handled as such.

Thanks WBF. Ingenious handling of everything. Next up the Fantunes coverup.

Agonizing to watch 4 (on Youtube after the fact) Upmark pull out 2 after to Q, thinking and then changing his mind. I had already stopped watching live on BBO, making was so obvious. Gawrys did shift to his lowest spade at trick 2.

Well done! Now where is the statement on Fantunes? The relinguishing of titles?

The career of Rona closely follows the successes of Fantoni-Nunes. Fantoni was apperently the heir apparent to Rona. Fulvio was given several high positions despite 15 years of rumours. If you check the Fantoni website there are numerous pictures of them together starting 1988. It would ill behove the credability of Rona to sweep the Fantunes cheating under the carpet!

I would like to especially congratulate Krysztof Jassem who is a very good person and deserves all the best! We can agree to disagree on Z/B though! ;)

Well done polish players! A great battle that someone had to lose. Spectacular entertainment and great propaganda.
