I think it is time for Helgemo, Helness, Martens, Multon, Zimmerman, Versace, Lauria, Duboin, Bocchi, Cayne, Seamon, … to take a high road. Do you guys really think you deserve to keep the titles won with F/N? The same goes for F/S teammates as well.

There is a dark blanket of silence of what actually occured with the Cars. Suffice to say that according to third hand sources, on the actual hand declarer heard how to play the diamond suit. The actual testimony might not be the most reliable ever. Then again that is standard procedure for the WBF/EBL.

I wonder why B/L where thrown under the bus but F/N werent. My guess is it had to be their relocating to Spain. Probably not popular with the powers that be.

One wonders how someone who in is BW profile as “Favourite Bridge Memory” has “Everything before 2011” can keep all the titles and medals gained with F/N since 2011.

Very few EW would have had both the stomach to appeal and the ability to get a decision their way. This is the way to play the game? Really?

I believe we will se Elvis alive before the WBF removes any masterpoints or titles won by an Italian team (with or without FN).

First remove all the Points won by Monaco when FN played, then create a list.

The winners list has been updated by the WBF. Co-winners in the open and womens pairs.

The first problem lies in defining a legal point limit for natural bids, especially since it only applies at the one level. The second problem is favoritism (nationality, system or friendship) when applying rules. Both these would be easy to resolve by a competent authority but never will. For starters we need that competent authority.

26 tables in the open. 10 in the ladies. 9 in the seniors. A Heavy workload.

Just check the wbf site for purpose. It says “devise methods and conduct competitions to award international and World titles”

Nowhere does it state correct or just results. The WBF does not care about that.

One wonders what would happen with a top ranking WBF official who speaks openly about events like this!? Maybe he/she would join Luca Brasi with the fishes?

You are technically wrong. Try googling “parnevik roe”.

Michael. I interpret from your comment that it was known by at least German Players and the WBF about this error sunday morning. Is that correct? Was it even earlier?

Jack Futrell: We can only do whats right here and now. Change to the better has to start somewhere.

This is a compromise and presumably the best we can achieve. It is not the best possible result but the best result possible.

I suggest the WBF do the right thing and pronounce 2 pairs the winners. Then improve the process so this doesnt happen again.
