Decisions of the Appeals & Charges Committee, November 2016
JoAnn, I suppose a particularly selfless pro and similarly selfless and deep-pocketed sponsor (with a somewhat perverse sense of humour) might hire a cheating pair and sit them out for the entirety of the relevant competitions.
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
Newspapers that don't mind making fun of the university would, I'm guessing, have fewer qualms about making fun of bridge players...
International Court for Sport?
I think you might be referring to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, headquartered in Lausanne. Coincidentally, the University of Lausanne's Law School also houses some of the leading experts in the field of Bayesian analysis of evidence provided in legal proceedings.

Ethics, what is allowed?
For anyone who wishes to see the variety of expert opinion regarding what is a hand that is bidding game to make opposite an opening preempt then look no further than hand 27, QF2 of the recent BB/VC/d'OC: Holding... T A874 KQJ8 AT95 ...
Ethics, what is allowed?
Not procedurally correct for me (though I am neither high level nor a TD). First, a player of any standard has had the benefit of a suitable pause by RHO after partner's bid to perform any 'analysis' needed (further, a high level player should arguably be more capable of ...
