See the BW article by Barnet Shenkin, whose father was in charge of investigating theReese/Shapiro case, for additional insights to the books by Truscott and Reese.

I see no reason why BB would wish to be anonymous, so I assume this is submitted by somebody else. Do you disagree?

Wouldn't that be like preaching to the choir?

Unless 5N is forcing, why do you say once they open 1N, they will always get to slam?

Interesting, so it was not submitted by BB.

If S had bid 3 after 2, it would have been simple, not that it wasn't after N's 3.

Hanan, does no one any good? How else to bring others in to provide additional evidence and to do their own investigations?

Here is something obvious. If I am someone who has had ethical issues (rightly or wrongly) and have lots of rumors about me, and if I am clean, I would behave in such a way that is above suspicion. I would never look at opponents' hands when I am dummy. If they show me their hands, I would ask them to please refrain from doing so.

Carl, have you considered that you are asked to be Watson, not Sherlock Holmes?

Will BB be allowed to dictate security measures while in Israel?

If you go outside the law, you should be willing to accept the punishment. That is the whole point of civil disobedience. As far as I can see, BB is doing that, although the real consequence has yet to be seen.

Seriously, if people don't see that a disclaimer is necessary when you are defending someone with you being his brother in law, then there is no point in any more discussion.

If even half of these accounts are true, it is simply mind-blogging these two are still allowed to play. Note: I said if true.

Hand 1. Is the communication only one way? Otherwise you have told your partner about your M, and partner would have an easy time bidding 4S. Or did you tell partner you have two suits, so partner signal back that he had S?

Andreas, maybe they have no choice because the team is whoever wins the team trial? Also, if you don't send your top 2 players, how do you justify it when they have not been found guilty of anything?

You keep saying “most people” this, “most people” that. Who are these “most people”? I see several top players who have chimed in, but apparently they already have formed their conclusion previously, and this latest development simply gives them a channel to voice their opinion. Some people wrote that they trust BB from experience or reputation, and they also gave credence to the Swartz team for announcing their giving up their titles, but I see very few if any people denying that BB can be wrong, except if people thought they already “knew” the truth.

We have no knowledge what the authorities are doing or not doing.In fact, do we even know that evidence has been submitted to them? Is it in the form of 10 of spades for the moment, J to come next? I doubt BB can trust the various NBO's to not leak the evidence to FS (too many people involved), so if he is using the strategy of releasing evidence gradually hoping to make FS play their cards prematurely (but then saying you are going to do so is not the way to make FS do that), it would be a big mistake to give the authorities all the evidence.

Why many times are you going to post the same message?

Acknowledgment of receipt to Boye would be proper if submitted through the right channel. If Boye did receive it, whether he informs the readers at BW is up to him.

David and Doug, I am not saying what pros do or don't do with respect to IRS. That has nothing to do with Bridge cheating. And if someone does not report all his incomes to IRS (not saying that is the case), that does not mean he cheats in Bridge. What I am saying is there may be some resistance to revealing to the public all financial compensation.
