At the time (2010), “Girls” were called “Young Ladies”.

Agree, and that explains EBU regulation, normally 8-8 BUT:

“(e) in aggravated circumstances, the TD may impose a more severe penalty/more generous indemnity. One example of such a circumstance would be if a side apparently guaranteed themselves qualification by fouling the match in the last round of a Swiss – a score of 0 VPs would then be normal.”

dura lex, sed lex.

(That said, 0-0 seems really harsh, I prefer something between 5-5 and 8-8 (EBU white book))

Difficult to find old regulations.

Maybe it was after Buratti-Lanzarotti performance in Salsomaggiore (they were 2nd in Butler ranking) that the WBF changed the regulation.

2015 EBL CoC:

“2.5 Invitation to Participate
Participation is subject to nomination by a player’s NBO and
approval/invitation by the EBL.”

Note that the invitation are for player, not pair or team, EBL can reject Bergoglio-Lanzarotti if they wish.

“banned from EBL events and activities for 5 years”
doesn't mean they will be invited to play after that.

EBL and WBF competitions are by invitation.

WBF general conditions of contest:

“3.5 Invitation to Participate
Participation in a World Bridge Championship is by WBF invitation only.”

The non-invitation was used against B/Z at the last Bermuda Bowl.

So the may be suspended 5 years and non-invited the next 20.

Strange that everybody is talking about appeal 6.

Appeal 5 looks more interesting, and concerns the same match.

Hi Marcin,

Outstanding.

Video is great, sound is good, BBO inclusion is perfect.

One small suggestion:

Add team names to the video titles:
(USBC - Round of 16 3-4/8 - T7 Closed)
-> (USBC - Round of 16 3-4/8 - T7 Closed - Gupta vs. Wolfson)

John wrote: “I can show Sven that regulation.”

What is clear is that nobody can find the regulation.

When in doubt alert everything.
