CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
You are applying modern behavior standards to a period of time when a different standard was more appropriate. Interestingly, the former standard would not have cheats escaping justice so easily.

CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes

After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
Does your simulation consider the heart suit? xxxxx vs QJT98?
The WBL, the EBL, and the ACBL -- Oh, My!
Andy, do you know if the WBF reviews credentials in Open events also?
Would you ever refuse to play a particular opponent?
