and , up to now, that view seems to be shared by the overwhelming majority of 1% of the voters, does that ring any bell ?

Nice to hear.

One question though, do the overwhelming evidence come from european championship or from unreleased video evidence from american championship ?

say i transfered with something like:
xxxx
xx
AJxxxx
x

after 1 - 1 - 1

I may have missed something but why 2 would be inv+ when the best spot is probably 2 ?

Michael,

Thanks for your answer.

May I suggest then that you have a look on “the whole story” (http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/the-whole-story/), and let us know what you think about the testimony of Mr Passell, if possible in the same way you deciphered the one of the OP in this thread ?

apparently, the degree of certainty that so many had in “the whole story” thread didn't disturb you too much…

@Mike H.

Nice logorrhoea and analysis. to discredit the OP ?

BTW, did you perform the same job in “the whole story” thread ?

@gary

fair enough but in this case, maybe they could have spared us the “so unfair, all these european cheats stole titles froms us” tune.

personally, if the OP is the truth, I don't see much difference between the now famous international cheat cases and that one. I'd find that one almost even worse…

176 comments so far. What's the treshold to become a “trending article” ? or maybe it is better if that article disappears as soon as possible from the home page ?

Knowing the rules does not mean reading the laws.
How many soccer players have read the soccer laws in your opinion ? I bet it is close to none…as well as for almsot any other sport by the way…

@Carol
I suspect that Mr. Rocafort refers to Lanzarotti playing at the highest level in French team championship.

if you do some research, you may find who are the sponsor and the teammates.

when you know you need some swinging boards either to qualify or to win an event, no matter if percentage are available or scores are on a scoresheet. If you chose then to bid wildly and do weird stuff, it's not unfair at all to other players, that randomizing element is just part of the game. As you well said, to suggest otherwise is silly.

BTW, this can also be extended to barometer events which are pretty cool to play even if result board is displayed round after round.

What was the difference when we had to write down the score on the scoresheet attached to the board ? Did you complain people making wild stuff because of the scoresheet ?

it sounds as the same right as any driver, I suppose you don't have a car and don't drive in order not to introduce carcinogenic fumes in my air ?
Isn't that the same right ?
