well Greg, i would like to hear their side of the story as well, and who are the other pairs he knows that are cheating.
sadly, i cant, because they never revealed the way they were cheating and didn't expose the other cheaters.
just for the record, in the bridge world, cheating is more similar
to murder than to tax issues.

Am i the only one to find Josef post strange, not to say sad?
for me its like robbing a bank and than blame the weak security and other robbers before for the wrong doings.
cheaters should be ban for life and chased out of the game and maybe than we will have less pairs taking the risk.
i must say that the last Europeans felt different (easier) from the previous ones i played, i wonder why.

5 days due to personal reasons.
it was known before the tournament and not a big mystery

I find your data very useful and interesting
mostly the part that breaks the butler to dealer and VUL
would be glad to see a butler relative to opponents as well
thank for this post and your work

since the last time i played was 2000 i checked back
we lost 2 places since the schools joined from 1st to 3rd
the avarage was almost the same.
you also dropped the 2011 because it doesnt fit your pattern
lets just say i feel sorry for you

hi michael
what i meant was that im sure israel as a team will get to the BB a lot of times in the future b/c of the strong
players currently and the fact they are very young.
also,unlike usa,the experts are limited number so
the candidates for the team each year comes from a group
of mybe 12 top players.i guess that at least birman-padon
will have a good chance to participate in the future b/c
of thier age (28 +-).
best regards

hi les :)
i remember you clearly from brazil and such
i prefer not to vote my opinion on the matter of F/S in public but if you want it you can find it via a personal chat
i too think the team players or IBF sould retire from the BB i think the bridge here is solid overall and we can skip 1 BB because of the situation and no harm will be done.
we will get there plenty of times in the future im sure.
obviously most of the players are good friends of mine and i understand their pain.
i really dont think the IBF has done much wrong and as one of the judges in the highest tribunal in the IBF for the last few years i assure you we take cheating very seriously and punish severly when it can be proven,so a ban against the IBF seems like a weird position for me.
in general i would say the relationship with other top pros from other countries are very good so i dont think anyone
is looking to hurt the israeli team/players and if they dicide not to play israel in the BB i would be suprised.
i captained the israeli national team a few times and i can understand thier desire to go to the BB but i hope they would do the right thing and forefit.
best regards
call me if you get here

Thats sound right the question is where did the diamonds go?
No raise so it doesnt sound like partner is very short

i stand corrected :)
still dont get how lotan/schwartz could hear and
your other pair couldnt/didnt/didnt report it immediatly
i think this board wouldnt be reported if your teammates
were playing against lets say me and thats whats troubling me.seems more like a personal issue than bridge.

what strikes me as very odd is if johan and nystrom have
heard the discussion that slam in clubs was making why
was the director not called to the table at that moment
i guess if the israelis understood it (as claimed) so did
the swedish as thier knowladge in italian is probably about
the same.
having said that i have played the swedish team a lot of time in long matches and they are honest and nice guys
so all the incident seems even stranger

well i think bidding 3d is borderline at best nv.
partner being aggressive makes it even worse
