Davids article is more or less unreadable.

Too many errors and not showing the actual deals but only one or maybe two hands make understanding difficult.

That`s the reason so few comments compared to Avons article.

Thanks for the 507 answers.

47,5 % think the Blue Team or at least some of the members
cheated.
3,6 % think the Blue Team did not cheat.
48,9 % abstained = “I do not know” according to several comments
to which I agree. Cause else you will vote one of the 3
other options.

@Joe H.- Steve M. -Ray Y. - Ronald K. and others!

You can have it anyway you want it - just make your own polls! :)

I have my reasons for the way I made my poll. The readers are free to make their own conclusions from the answers. I am not the one to tell how to weight the evidences shown by Avon Wilsmore and I am not the one to define the conclusion from my poll.

And come on and relax - it is just a poll! Why are you writing about flame war , live grenades and bombs? This is IMO a friendly bridge site!

If you do not like the poll -SKIP IT! And go on with your life!

Have a nice weekend with lot of bridge - and no bombs and no flame war and no live grenades or other nasty things! :)

@Steve

You write “ cursory read ”. Does that mean you have not read the 21 pages closely?

@ Ken.

I just ask a simple question which can be answered very easily and simple with a yes or no.

The conclusion of the poll is up to the readers/members of Bridgewinners. They be the judge - not me! I let the readers judge! :)

When a jury is asked they can answer yes or no ( guilty or not guilty ). The same here. :)

With a passed hand behind me I will always bid 1NT - especially when I have an escape convention if I get doubled. Better than the alternativ: Pass or double.

If I play Blue Team doubles I have an easy double! ;) ;)

My partner and I play DONT in this situation. So with a 5 card suit I RD and partner must bid 2C and then I bid my suit ( or pass ). So here I will bid 2C showing clubs and a higher suit (not hearts). If I bid 2D I show 4-4 in spades and diamonds. Believe me - it works very fine.

Partner play the same so I know he has not two 4-card suits outside hearts if he pass.

Without this agreement I will bid 2D my strongest suit.

I will never pass!

If W after seeing dummy thinks that he must cut down dummys diamond ruffs the technical correct heart to play in trick 2 is the 10 IMO.

Danny himself spells his surname “Kleinman”. But of course he can be wrong too!:):)

But no other famous international pair/pairs did win so many championships as the blue team members. But there were probably other cheaters - and there are still IMHO.

And to show this they had their pen for signalling according to Keld Pedersen.
