As others have stated, who is to say a double could not be demanding a club lead? I feel very sorry for the guy who hesitated because he had a lot to consider! Oh but we are clearly going to be punished for thinking in such an auction.

That “top quality player” comment just turned my stomach, honestly was that really necessary? Clearly a vast majority of players feel a diamond lead was justified.

So proud of the Kiwis, first time NZ has ever qualified in the Bermuda Bowl, they've come very close a few times…and now they are in the Semis - watch out France!

This was our auction: (1H) 2H (P) 2S (P) 6S (P) 7S, I decided there were many layouts that 6S would make and Susan Humphries rightly judged that I would not bid 6S missing 2 Ace's and that her minor cards were full value, I considered exclusion but didn't think on our auction it was going to be particularly helpful. 6 pairs in the Women's bid it, 4 in the Open and 2 in the Seniors, we were unlucky that they also bid it against our team mates.

That photo was so random, I would of been more than happy if it had been accompanied by an awesome 7NT my partner and I bid in the final session on Saturday, one of our few bright moments in the what I liked to call the “flog a dead horse pairs”. Also for those interested there was no choice for the women's pairs to drop into the “Open” from the knock out rounds.

I didn't like the pairs playing schedule for most of the reasons mentioned, having to get back into town and have dinner around 9:30 to 10pm (if you were lucky to get prompt service) was not ideal. I wouldn't play such a format again. Loved Wroclaw though, great place to have the event, so reasonable!

You have summed this up very well Yu, I have witnessed what you describe many times, in fact I was part of an appeals process in the European's a few years back when being a minnow team we were almost bullied not to appeal but we did and we won, it was a most satisfactory end to a frustrating ruling at the table not helped by the fact that the well known player was from the same country as the director and had a full discussion in their native language before the director made the ruling. I can't abide the “bully pro”, bad enough with the “think they are clever but actually not” players at the table, not sure which is the worst!

5 years for how many years cheating? How many titles were cheated? How much money was cheated? How many were cheated? How many played those bloody awful opening Two's?
Disappointed doesn't begin to express the feeling regarding this sentence.

Thanks for all your hard work organising this Jan, we do appreciate it from afar. I'm sure a lot of Kiwis and Ozzie's would like to see Bramley :-)

I really like your idea Max. There is nothing worse than trying to sort out a scoring error after the match especially when the other team who doesn't know about the error has disappeared, it causes a lot of stress and angst as I have experienced in both roles of captain and player over the years. 2 machines at the table would eliminate this, it would be immediately picked up if the two machines had different scores entered, in fact it would not be accepted from the get go, easy to create the software I'm sure.

Way back when Bridgewinners had a poll re picking BB winner, I voted Sweden ☺️
Well done making the final!

And this well known player is? You didn't hesitate to mention Malcom Mayer so why not say the name of this well known player playing for Gemany? Go on, you know you want to.

I found this interesting, watch Nune's arm placement after he looks at Hugh's cards. Around the 21 min mark, I don't know the hand or anything, just watching the dynamic of the play, Fantoni goes into the tank and after Nunes arm movement seems to find the card he needed to find, Tom Hanlon didn't look impressed - this is is all going on body language, nothing else.

I actually do know - see Boye's comment about the fact that 100's of people are working on these cases.

My actual favoured preference is for more video surveillance, this is surely quite a low cost solution? Also we are talking about elite events here, not your random local tournament. Plus a room monitor wouldn't be looking for codes, their mission would be to stop table talk (passing on hand details etc), checking for electronic devices (caddies and some directors do this already) and monitoring players getting up walking past other tables, sounds like really simple stuff but actually it is important, like an exam room monitor.

Do we really believe there are enough cheaters at this level of bridge to warrant such a change? Sad times guys, this seems to have developed into some kind of paranoia, I'd rather pay for a cheat monitor or two in the playing room.
And hey give the caddies a break, especially the young ones as see how many of them turn into bridge players.
