Timo, what does this prove? Nothing except that Jeff's skills at analysis and deduction require honing.
The word “Schaenfreude” was used and this is appropriate.

In a big Club context this is a perfectly normal opening. As Jeff has played a big C, this comment is disingenuos and another example of poor research.

A min 433 with no source of tricks? I doubt it. Bidding here shows a lack of basic hand evaluation skills.

This thread is a typical example of someone who is so determined to show the opps were cheating that he produces very poor evidence to justify that claim. I heard this sort of nonsense in the bar after every major tournament. No I am not claiming the doctors were innocent jsut please produce reasonable evidence hands which prove that you have not analysed hands properly.

Some very odd examples here. Bd 6 Ger vs Fr. This looks like an obvious pass to me. Maybe some cowboys might bid 3nt but I doubt a thinking bridge player would From where are your tricks coming?

What about when the appeal sets aside the verdict due to the way in which the hearing was originally conducted. What will happen then? A second hearing? And if this does not happen what about when a court of law rules that the original hearing denied the two doctors natural justice and suffered from irregularities, as it surely would.

I disagree strongly. This pair is just as guilty of cheating as the doctors. The punishment should be less severe, but it is still cheating.

This has been the most interesting well ever. Thanks. You made an interesting comment earlier where you said you feel the standard of card play in Europe is higher than that in the US. Asia has been a source of strong players as well in the past, eg Patrick Huang and a number of Indonesians. Do yo think China will be a powerhouse soon?

“I wasnt playing with a regular partner so i didnt even know what 3H would have meant for him.” That is what I figured. In this case it is even more obvious to pull. You cannot be expected to read him for a 5-6.

Yes Avon, however this asks the question “What is cheating”? Lets say you are playing in a moderate standard event. or perhaps even the SWPT - some top pairs and a lot of local casual players. Do you differentiate between the lols playing cards with extra emphasis, facial grimaces, etc etc and the good pairs who counter your explanation requests with “No agreement” when this is an obvious lie? If the answer is “No”, then why not? There are no degrees of cheating in my opinion.

Yes John, I agree with you, but Nth should realise that there is no way that Sth can expect him to hold the hand he does. That is why I posted “ Having already misbid”. Perhaps Nth and Sth had no agreement on the meaning of a 3H bid? Perhaps Nth thought he was not strong enough to bid 3H despite holding a fine 5/6 hand? Who knows?

North 75%. I really dislike 2S. What is wrong with 3H? Having already misbid, I would bid 4C over the x.

Mario, you really are quite an objectionable individual. Nearly all of your posts to date cast aspertions and make allegations to which you surely cannot be privy. A previous poster has already intimated that you owe Welland an apology and I concur.

Bobby, that is a fantastic attitude. I am really pleased to read a top US player express those sentiments. You are a Daniel come to judgement!

Hi Dave,
Maybe, though I really think video conferences are unsuitable for this sort of thing. I have taken part in video conferences and they are fine foe disseminating information. They are not good for detecting facial nuances, nuances of expression and for gaining an insight into whether the participants are telling the truth.

From what I have read, the Doctors were given date. If that date was not suitable for a personal appearance, a video conference ws offered. The fait accompli seems unfair. A video conference is ridiculous in this sort of situation.
It appears that some US posters cannot understand these concerns.

I have played against them some years ago. When we sat down at the table there was no response to our greeting whatsoever. And when we got a good result against them there was lots of huffing and puffing and other unpleasant comments. I just don't think they are pleasant people.

I am sorry, but this proves nothing at all and in fact detracts from the evidence because it is a meaningless comment. These guys are not the friendliest of people at the best of times.

Nat, you are a troll who posts nonsense. Truscott was an unpleasant individual who had a number of agendas.

I would hate to play Bridge like this, Richard.
