I doubt any of us are qualified to claim knowledgeably that Meredith needed the inheritance to ‘allow him to play rubber bridge’ - after all it is my understanding he played rubber bridge for a living all his life.

According to many I have spoken to over the years including but not limited to Truscott, Priday, Schapiro, Hoffman, etc, Adam Meredith was a card playing genius of the very highest order, alongside the likes of Seres, Schleifer, etc.

Lars: Under current regs, he would only be ‘stuck there’ for 2 years - he could then play again for France.

I have posted my view on this matter elsewhere but repeat it here for convenience…

Mariusz: You are unquestionably a man of dignity and honour and have now set the new gold standard.

The opponents and team mates of all pairs that cheated have my sympathies.

Tom: ‘All that you can do’ is one thing but just what the WBF will decide to do remains shrouded in mystery - the bridge world awaits their pronouncement with great interest, both in respect of this championship and many others.

Michael: In broad terms I agree with you - I myself do not play Gerber but if a gun was held to my head and I was forced to agree to it, I would invoke Gerber only on hands such as the following:

AKQJ10XXX
X

AKQ

Tom: You have my sympathies - 3 cheating pairs in a row – wow - comic book stuff!

But equally revealing is that this is the initial firsthand account I have read by a player confirming he/she reported suspicions on another pair directly to WBF at a WBF tournament.

How many other players I wonder have done the same?

It all begs the following questions:

Were records kept of this (and other similar instances)? If not, why not?

Were reports filed? If so who saw sight of them? If not, why not?

What conclusions were reached?

Was anything reported to the relevant NBOs?

Were members of the WBF EXCO aware of any or all the above? If yes, what actions did they take or recommend others take? If not, why not?

I could go on…

Vacate, promote, whatever, I would just like to see a world standard produced by WBF for all MBOs to adopt.

Alan: For sure you are correct in your analysis and it would be good to have a moving NGS average over a period of say 3 - 6 months - this would most likely be a truer reflection than any particular moment in time.

Benoit: What was needed was strong leadership from WBF allied with transparent and precise action in line with their judicial and moral duties - what we appear to have got was a secret court, some poor and rather demeaning announcements, a couple of second rate (I am being polite) press conferences and fudge.

Kindly provide the evidence. There are some 6,000-7,000 PBU members - how many have you consulted?

I will let you respond and have the last word on this matter.

John: Your sample is no doubt based on comments made on BW and in no way is this a representative sample.
