They have unique table manners and mechanics. It is disturbing to watch.

Realistically, getting to a good slam with AKxxxx opposite xxxx and with x opposite AKQ is not what you should design your system for. One of those conditions is fine, but 2?? Just move on to next hand. If you happen to bid slam, fine, as long as trumps are not 3-0 or they ruff a Diamond.

4 times 15 boards in a day. Would shorten the RR considerably, bring more team to the transnationals and lessen expenses for some!

Alan Eagleson would fix it in a cinch! Don Koharski to referee maybe? (Check YouTube for Canada cup 1987 final game)

You do know Harris is Prosecutor of the WBF disciplinary committe? He could well describe a process if there was one to describe, including penalties. The cupboard is just empty.

Nothing. And the journalists were stopped from questions by someone who talks a lot and says very little

I have seen some China and Japan. Effective bridge and logical. Dark horses here.

Please give some players a penalty for bidding box irregularities though! “Always take the entire content behind your bid!” How hard is that? Forbidding someone always being NS is also simple.

Ask about retroactively removal of titles. Is it possible?

1966 i think it was. You have:
AKQJTxx x xx AKx

LHO opens 3. It goes Pass. Pass. D'alelio now tried a somewhat cautious 3

Unluckily partner hade 0 points with xx in Spades and Clubs.

I remember reading that over and over again.

There is at least one cheating US pair from the 60s that would surprise many, I think.

Saverio. First of all I apologize if you feel I ever slighted Italy. I have some Italian friends I admire for their bridge game and how they act.

That being said. I think if you read Fantonis biography it is easy to draw the conclusion when they started cheating together. They were kicked out of the Angelini team (by BL!!) then got back in 2000 and became world beaters.

So no, they didnt start 5 years ago and I think FIGB can prove it!

The softspoken mr Harris is also Prosecutor in the worldbridge disciplinary committe. We can look forward to an open and well documented process when judging if someone smoked too close to the playing area or what bridge players are allowed to utter about the WBF.

Next year the World Bridge Games will be held in Poland. I feel there is a possible explanation hidden here!
