Serious answer Michael . Do they cheat ? Probably . Were their rights trampled ? Don't they deserve due process ?

Boye should have gathered evidence and then presented it . Not the other way around.

One does not go screaming from the rooftops on what has now become the Fox news of the Bridgeworld just to rile up the public . Boye still hasn't proven his case yet.

I get that you pros lost serious money and are potentially getting cheated by other pairs as well .

Where is the outrage over them ? As Boye said , coming to a computer near you .

What if the next time whoever accuses is wrong ?

Many have commented that if the accused don't cheat then they have nothing to worry about . That's laughable.

All it takes is for one person to say to themselves : I better not hire this pair due to the rumors floating around.

Boye's interests have been served

Boye wants to make a statement ? Let him give his bonus money to charity .

We are setting a very bad precedent.

If everybody else shuts up then I suppose Michael will too. He is making a very valid point.

Personally I think Boye should be thrown out of Bridge for the way this was handled .

Hero ?? If he had won the committee, by his own admittance, all this never would have happened .

I find it all very self serving . right or wrong he may be

I have lost all respect for the way u handled this. To start a forest fire , flame it with a lot of hot air and then say you will bring water in a couple of days is not only malicious but also irresponsible .

Where people see a hero , I see someone crying in his beer cause he lost a match .

Who knows whether they cheat or not. Certainly no one on this thread .

“Just for the record, see board 1 of session 3 in the final, i can only hope this is a BBO error”

As a matter of fact, there was an operator error on board 1 of the third quarter of the final - the actual result in the Open Room was 3♠ making 4, for a 6 IMP swing to Monaco. We found that out when we checked to see why the score the players turned in was different from the one we had on BBO.

At least I a quote to back me up : Stupidity and Bravery are Twin Brothers Separate by Results'

Since there are no results………

Exactly my point. This wasn't an issue until u lost in committee . So instead of calling people cheaters let's see this Pandora's box that you opened .

One of my favorite sayings is : Show me. Don't tell me !

Of course I support that .

However this is not the way to go about doing things . Look at this thread . People who have less than a clue are making accusations , applauding stupidity while calling it heroism and generally making these guys guilty whether they are or aren't.

As one who had to listen to Boye rant in Chicago I have to question his motives and his timing. None of this occurred while he was teammates with them . It all started when he went on a mad crusade after he lost the committee . The 2 hands he offered ….. One was a defensive play made that you had to play declarer to be insane and he was. The other was a hand where the VG operator made a mistake and it was never corrected until a score change between quarters on BBO. No one ever knew that the bid made was not made

He offered NOTHING from his time as a teammate . Obviously it didn't bother him back then . Now he is pouring over the hands to try and find “ evidence ”. While everyone is “ applauding ” I have lost all respect for him .

Right or wrong he may be

All i see are vigilantes . Not one shred of evidence amongst the whole lot of you . But why would a mob want to listen to reason ? Go back and read Joanna's take on the situation
