Credentials Advisory Team (CAT)
Timo: "Michael what you just said went out of the window long time ago when Boye was threatened. (Wheelchair topic)" I think there is a big difference between what Boye did - leading the charge - and giving a heads up to this Committee about a player/pair. David C: "Michael, why ...
Defend this hand
I think of plays 'gaining' or 'losing'. A heart 'gains' against Qxxx (or Q9x)
Credentials Advisory Team (CAT)
In real life, people might be worried about their physical safety if it comes out. In bridge, I think we can remain 'pure' and do without anonymopus accusations.

Confession of a Self-Kibitzer

Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
"So Fredin is banned because he did something that probably directly led to one of the highest profile players in the world not cheating online anymore" JLall (and others). No he was banned by the organizers of this site because he violated the rules of this site. The fact that ...
Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
Justin: Yes, I think that's quite likely. But I think it would have been equally likely if it had been communicated as a Private Message.
