Here's what happened Gary.

On Monday afternoon my girlfriend Cheryl and I were watching the vugraph. We both couldn't figure out how 2 made but we just assumed the vugraph was wrong.

On Friday I spoke to Hazel Wolpert and we discussed a couple of the boards but I had completely forgotten about board 14 and 2. That evening Cheryl asked if I'd found out how the contract was made and I told her I was seeing Hazel the next day and I'd ask.

Hazel didn't remember the board in question so we looked at it on BBO and she realized the play was correct, the claim was wrong. That was something neither Cheryl or I had ever considered. If I had thought so, I probably wouldn't have brought it up at all.

My friends had just lost a 120 board match by 1 IMP, I wasn't going to ask why they pitched 4 IMPs by accepting a bad claim. The whole thing started by accident. After that I had no connection to anything.

To Ina, Katie, Joan, Karen, Pamela, Brenda, Sylvia, Barbara and especially Hazel, Linda and Sondra, sorry to have caused all this trouble.

I knew it was your idea, I just thought he had the first chance to use. It works great, but only once :-)

When you played with John Gowdy in Salsomaggiore, did you really alert John's double of 4NT and explain it as “We don't think you know what your responses mean after the double?”

Congratulations on your success and best of luck in the future.

I know BBO enforces ACBL suspensions for their ACBL tournaments but that has no affect on non-ACBL games. I would assume they'd do the same for any EBL sanctioned events they may have.

The players were required to call the director at the time of the irregularity. If they decided not to and to make their own ruling, I'd let them keep the result they got.

At a sectional Swiss about twenty years ago, the director moved our table outdoors to help get rid of the smell from smoking.

Perhaps by “decisions” they mean the hearing with be about unusual bridge decisions unrelated to coughing or board placement, made at the table by Beavis and Butthead.
