Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
As I recall events: Although most Bridge_winners were convinced that B-Z cheated, some of us, myself included, urged that we hold our guns, until the EBL had the opportunity to conduct an in-depth inquiry. Eventually, after long delay, and protracted investigation, the EBL pronounced B-Z innocent. Doubt was cast on ...
If you study Bridge-Winners threads about players who allegedly broke the law, deliberately, for gain then you can confirm that opinions tend to divide along national and patriotic lines, with small regard for fact. Official bodies seem unable to deal with putative offenders, in a fair efficient, timely, transparent way ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
We are grateful to Gary Hann, who collated the facts. Agree with Elliot Shalita. For completeness... - In 2015, playing in a tournament, in a Pro team, Mike Passel had a bad board, 5X-1. - MP then moved cards between his opponents' hands. - When opponents confronted MP, he admitted what he ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Bridge has laws and regulations to deal with infractions. Collusive cheating is an infraction. John Larkin, if you suspect opponents of cheating at Bridge, does that justify your unethical conduct? IMO, instead you should report the infraction. If that doesn't work, you should campaign to change the rule-enforcers or ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
It seems that some players agree with Ed's interpretation of the UI law but deliberately break it because they deem it ridiculous. IMO that is a sad state of affairs, especially for thoose who try to abide by the rules. Possible solutions: - Clarify current law and enforce it rigorously ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Judy Kay-Wolff 'Nigel, I just saw your post above. Do you really believe this request was made by Bobby without good reason!! GAMESMANSHIP?? You must be joshing.' Mike Becker wrote 'When he (Belladonna) made a bid, he placed his bid flush against the diagonal screen, instead of in front of ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Yes. I agree that the rules are unclear but I think that you are entitled to know as much about your opponents' agreements as they do. I concede that is hardly ever true. Arguably, disclosure is still inadequate now. My point is that Alerts, Announcements, WBF convention cards with supplementary ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Gary Hann wrote "the Meckwell system allegedly runs 500 pages +/- and includes a plethora of hidden gems, some of which I was privileged to view first hand when doing VuGraph" "Much of Meckwell is devoted to non-competitive bidding. They are a model of being scrupulous to alert any conventional calls ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Two comments are of interest given the dispute over Blue-team methods -- especially the meaning of doubles. Richard Fleet quotes the disclosure of the 1955 USA team methods in its entirety: "A. Roth and partner: Weak two-bids. Pre-emptive jump overcalls. Do not open four-card majors in first or second position. All ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Avon Wilsmore quotes Jaime Ortiz-Patino: ”I understood the tape well and was in little doubt of its authenticity, the background noises and such like being thoroughly convincing … In places, my jaw literally dropped… smoke signals, pauses, commonplace words with coded meanings…" Allegedly, over more than 60 years, WBF presidents have ...
