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.

Shouldnt have been allowed to play! How can the organizers know if the woman should be North or South in an open event!? Maybe it is in the CoC next time.

Difference here might be the number of boards these particular pairs have played against each other before. Another reason might be the enormous detail in the CC of the EW pair and their adherence to it. An unlikely coincidence have the Monaco NS for once straying from system and opening a 10 count, whereas the CC states otherwise.

Enlighten us! I guess this is a very famous pair …

Apparently disclosing your system is a greater sin than not doing so! This is a strange world.

Given the second spade played was fairly high (7?), I dont think a club return is an alternative.

That is very much the reason. strongly influenced by the US voices in the regulatory committe. The twist that it bites back on 3rd suit openers is ironic in itself.

Maybe they are playing “The switch” so showing clubs would force to the 3-level. Not on the CC though. Very cautious bidding by Bathurst otherwise.
