if they can't find any decent teammates, wouldn't they win (or at least try to) all the remaining pairs games then ?

In summary:

“Shooting only against certain opponents.”
Legal? Yes, it is.
Ethical? Yes, it is.

Anything else ?

Drew,

on that side of the ocean, when a disciplinary commitee states that a player, whoever his name, is found guilty of prearranging, well it means that the player has been found guilty of prearranging a deal and nothing else.
And I truly hope you also think that such a behaviour only deserves a life ban.
So, sorry but I don't feel ashamed as the reaction was truly based on what is written in the ACBL DB without supposing that on your side of the ocean, a committe verdict could have several meanings, including one apparently totally erroneous regarding the story told by your friend.

BTW, I already apologized above however, I still think that prearranging a deal, whoever does it, deserves life ban and I'm not ashamed of that.

“Well, he was not! ”

Indeed, as well as the ACBL verdict stating “found guilty of .. E13 (Prearrange a deal or part thereof)” sounds now very wrong, doesn't it ?

Hello,

I owe you an apology as I overreacted yesterday following the “prearranging a deal or part thereof” part of the ACBL bulletin which sounded like “this man has cheated”.

This indeed is quite a sad story, and I don't understand how such misguided verdict wiithout any explanation could be published in that way in the ACBL bulletin.

My apologies again.

“You can say that I am wrong and that is fine”.

Fine, you are wrong.

for the moment, ACBL seems to state that one has been “found guilty of violating … and E13 (Prearrange a deal or part thereof)”.

It sounds the nature of the infraction is quite clear to a non-native english speaker but I may have missed a subtility.

“Given the caliber of the player involved”, I disagree with that part, communication & sanction about any cheat affair (whatever the name is john doe or any superstar) should be the same IMO.

“To David and all the other folks interested in knowing who's dirty, ask around. It's not exactly top secret.”

It may be complicated from France and not being part of top-level bridge, are you willing to answer privately ?

Norman, which part of “ and E13 (Prearrange a deal or part thereof)” is not understandable ?

“As to all those who believe he should be banned for life….Really?“

Yes.

”You would like to be judged by your worst action? Not me.”

“bridgically” judged by my worst action towards bridge, if I was a champ' caught pre-arranging a deal to satisfy my client, yes..

“t's a travesty to hang him publicly given the lack of attention paid to the woeful ethical state of high-level bridge”

so, high-level bridge domain is rotten, right ?
and because of that, we should congratulate a cheater instead of banning him ?

“Well, some of us have a different world view. ”

Exactly, some do not cheat and some do.
