Patrick, If you call "So in my mind, taking one of the few allotted spots by cheating is a heinous act. From what I have observed myself, the spacing bids, and Robin's analysis of their defensive code, seems to be spot on, and I am 100% certain they were cheating." a speculation, you deserve a Pulitzer if not a Nobel prize

More attacking from David too. “Its just a matter of time before B-Z is going Down.” by Per Ove is a forward looking, clearly partisan statement.

My belief is that is would be an obligation of the Polish team if this is the case

Robin, where did I suggest that ‘the passion for cracking the code’ should not be used in case of allegation of cheating?

Arno: “Still, Mr. Gawrys (like Mr. Kolinski) does not mention any disapproval of cheating, concern for fair play, awareness of the impact of cheating on OTHERS.” Mr. Gawrys also failed to mention that he doesn't approve the slavery in the US back in 19th century or that he disproves mass homicides so ravaging our 20th-century history

Given the relatively long time which elapsed from the first leakage of news on BZ makes me think that the evidence (if any) of their wrongdoings will remain open for dispute for additionally long time. Meanwhile, a number posts has appeared witch make an impression that catching a firebrand to burn the Frenkenstein monster would be the happiest moment in the lives of their authors; in addition, some of them appear having a clear personal stake in the outcome. I think that the due vigilance necessary to keep high ethical standards of bridge require a bit cooler heads and agnosticism lest witch hunting becomes a standard in our discipline.

17, with 18+ it's 1c opening

I would call your analysis ‘cornering the enemy.’ It is also besides the point since in UI situations the problem is whether a player is entitled to a given piece of information, not what decision is optimal w/wo alleged UI

I concur with 2S bidders. I play 2C as 1 round force by a non passed hand. 2N shows extras like 13+ 15-. Once in this mess, I bid 3S dumping it to partner

The last time I retransfered in competitive bidding, partner bid a cue-bid. I bid again a suit below my major, partner jumped to a slam. On something like a finesse and 3-3 break, the slam was cold. So there may be something about retransfers, as Rueful Rabbit would remark having played that hand

John, I guess the sanity has been monopolized

John, 4c goes past 3N, which should be kept in the picture even if supposedly takeout double promised 5c. Besides, what is your bid with xxx, AJ9xx, Kxxx, x?

Something of a variety
xx, KQx, Axx, AKJxx
If partner happens to have 6 clubs and no H fit, it will give a great opportunity to discuss how having/not having a fit should influence bidding decisions

JoAnna,
2N will most of the time show extra length in spades since jump to 3M is space consuming and most of balanced hands with 5M you open 1N. In (advanced) Polish club, most of the time 2N shows 15-17 with 6M without a suit good enough that sets the trumps via jump to 3M. These my logical conclusions from playing quite a few years in Poland. And I have hard time convincing my Canadian partners to treat 2N as showing extras, which sucks since having both 2M and 2N to show a minimum hand is a waste of resources
Lars,
I explained the auction as it should be seen via G lenses. No matter what you think of 4d, it was a forward move. Notice that in Polish club, K couldn't have the hand with which the grand had a play even if the B-wood response had shown 3 aces

Michal, Please do read Schopenhauer's ‘Eristic, or the Art of Argument’ to see where he locates arguments ad hominem or ad personam you seem to specialize in.

If we're at that, G didn't know at that point that they had a fit. 4d established a fit and aspirations. Isn't it that you try to judge based on your bidding style? Besides, since 2N was clearly a minimum for this bid, where's the problem?

Dear Judy, I've made no disagreement with you about your opinion about Mr. Rosa. On the matter of Gettysburg Address, I think we've already agreed to disagree and there is no reason to go circles

13 tricks. 1c+6s+6d = 13

Hmmm… That's the hand with which you bid 2N promising extras when the most likely next bid you hear is 3N? Your analysis works only after an additional assumption that Klukowski is an average player in yo club or he plays with a client

In my opinion, few people would deem as ‘well known’ any historical fact from the strictly national history of any given nation. Your message was perfectly clear without the reference to the historical fact much less widely known outside of the US than the US inhabitants think.
