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.

Yes Phil, sorry also, I posted in annoyance too before I realised this “person” was trolling.

' In 1976, the great Ira Rubin found a way to overcome the Blue Team's shenanigans, but to do it he had to create a defense that confused Italian pen clickers with some pen clicking of his own."

Really!! What a load of rubbish. This is just another example of some people being jealous of the success of others and unwilling to realise that the opposition s of a far better calibre than they are.

Nick, it does if the times given to them and the location given to them is a fait accompli as appears to have been the case.

Dean, one shouldn't, (well I don't anyway), post hearsay which seriously damages peoples' reputations. (I realise some people might say Buratti has little reputation anyway, but that is not the point).
I did not imply that Gonzalo is a liar; however we only have his opinion on that matter at this stage. If it did occur, should he not prove it? H
How would you feel if I said “I once saw Dean Pokorny lean over and peer into his opponent's cards?” I am sure you would be mightily aggrieved and rightly so. Note that I never said where or when and I have no provided nothing to justify my claim. (No offence meant to you about this comment, Dean.)

This sort of comment is outrageous because you do not provide any evidence to support it. Do you have evidence? If not I suggest you not make accusations and keep your opinions to yourself.

Ed, how many video conferences have you taken part in? I have taken part in a lot. In so many cases it is impossible to convey one's real intentions and views as opposed to doing it face to face. I would have preferred the hearing to be held in Europe.However to hold this hearing in the US is grounds enough for appeal in my opinion.

Yes Avon, I did. You did not read my post. I said SOME evidence is lame. Having played against you a number of times many years ago, I doubt you would have made what I regard as a totally beginner's bid of 2S. Wold should really be ashamed of submitting this in the evidence. I do agree with you about the majority of the evidence, however.

A few things concern me. The case was held in the US . Why not in Europe? Some of the evidence presented is lame to say the least and has in one case, nothing to do with coughing. eg, the ridiculous Spade bid which went 4 off. This is an egregious beginner's error to bid spades here.
Finally, it is surely incorrect to tell the observer what to look for. This is not the way evidence should be gathered.

Come of the grass! What more do you want? This is a great promotion, but we do need one for men as well.

Hi Eric,
Obviously you are not going to change now, but if Meckwell were to start out again (the Fountain of Youth, perhaps?), would you play the same system or would you consider other alternatives perhaps something where vulnerability plays a bigger role, such as Duboin's “Big Bang”.

Hardly obsessed. Just wondering if India, which has more violence than Bali, is an acceptable choice.

“in your partnership, have you shown an 8 or 9 card spade fit?” Why? It could easily be a 7 card fit. I do not play that 1S shows 5, it shows 4+. Partner could easily have 3 for the raise as there was no opportunity for a support double. Before you make a silly comment like “bad bridge” perhaps you would do better to attempt to understand other treatments.
It sounds to me like you are one of those unpleasant people at the table who try to manipultae the laws for their own benefit.

Neither does an erroneous comment make your statement accurate. I also play 3D as a suggestion to play here.

John Adams, IT WAS NOT A PSYCHE! I suggest you read the definition of a psyche. It is annoying when people comment on the rules without actually knowing what the rules are.

I dislike the 1NT bid. You are not able to jump the auction and you give the opponents far too many options - doubling on flat hands, transferring with single/two suiters. Have you considered canape overcalls?

For what reason, Terry? If it was discovered that he passed a nf bid I would have reported you on the zero tolerance rule. Why would you have filed a recorder form? My reading of the situation is that these are for psyches. As has already been pointed out here, no one psyched.
