Comparing what Dean said in his posts to being a “child molester” is over and above, just wrong, IMO.
His entries about bridge are insightful and instructive. He is a passionate person apparently.
He can discuss bridge in my living room anytime. The question remains> Where does he play bridge live? What's his bridge history?

Who exactly IS Dean? The Dean that is from Croatia appears to be a young rock musician. Perhaps that is wrong, because I can't identify the music style. Apart from that, his facility with English is incredible, even for an American. He had an amazingly large amount of followers drawn from most of the elite bridge players on here.
And his knowledge of bridge laws , and his attention to the minutest details of bridge games was phenomenal. Its my impression that that isn't his real name, because I couldn't find any bridge results for him, except in bridgewinners. So , any ideas?

If its part of your system to rebid 3NT with a running seven card minor suit, and an outside ace, then this hand fits that description and you must bid 3NT. If you don't bid 3NT, then you haven't told your partner what you have.If you do bid 3NT, he can take part in the auction in an informed way and set the contract, and you won't miss 6 D if its there.

I wasn't here when he was posting, but I looked up and read all his posts. He was a great writer, and extremely witty… it just happens to have been at other's expense. He reminded me of a sword fighter dancing around his opponent and making stabs of verbal brilliance. However though all that it was very apparent he loved bridge, and he loved the laws of bridge, and knew them well. He pointed out the hypocrisy he detected in bridge players. One post he made , the one where over a one diamond bid, the partner waited for ? minutes before bidding 4 spades. The opener left it in. I think that example was given to show the integrity of the opener, who because of the time taken to make the response, let the 4 spades stand. (it was exclusion blackwood.) Many of his posts I found really entertaining, like watching David Letterman in his heyday. (remember David and Oprah Winfrey).

Do you play spiral? If you don't then discuss it with your partner so next time a similar situation comes up you can legally inform your partner what you have.

3NT is a systemic bid, a solid running suit. Have to bid it in our system.

This may be going off on a tangent here, but I really wish BBO could come up with GIB's who could be directed to play a specific bidding system, and carding,ie, mine, and I could play my own system, to practice it. We all know that bidding systems make a great deal of difference in the results, and I'd like to see how mine compares with other systems. Then I'd be really happy to play GIB tourneys!

I asked a sysop if BBO could determine if the players were on skype, and they said no, they couldn't. I think there has to be some way that a lot of the bbo tourneys allow scores of way above 70 % . Perhaps its two players in the same house/ room?

If the person has an international reputation, then its very likely their hands are on viewgraph from past competitions. Perhaps you can check those. If they are cheating now, they probably have done so in the past. I've found, to my chagrin, that some players with very high stats, and whom I've regarded highly in the past, have in fact usually had a “kibitzer” watching. One of these also had lehmans in the 70's on Okbridge. The kibitzer's name(s) changes from time to time and usually logs in at the same time as the player. I have confirmed the cheating to my own satisfaction, since both of these highly ranked players(separately) have answered a question that was directed to the kibitzer…. rather incriminating. One of these players has nothing to gain apart from the joy of always winning. The other gives lessons.
The silliest form of cheating I've seen on BBO was done by two players with Chinese names. They arranged team matches with one of them the director, and if they got a bad score, simply adjusted the score to favor themselves. That went on for a few weeks, but I think BBO when told eliminated them. During the same time frame when they were cheating in that particular fashion, they were also playing together in BBO ACBL tournaments and doing rather well. Skype???

I want the lead to come to me. I trust my partner to get us to a making slam if there is one, after I bid 3 hearts he would come in with 4S, RKC14/30 for hearts.
He knows what I have and will make the decision.

Disagree with everything you said basically. If Bernie ran the USA it might start to become a sane government.

I love this Bernie Sanders! I'd vote for him in a heartbeat if I were American! And a bridge player? That's the icing on the cake!

No, the implication isn't that Peter was unethical, which he certainly isn't. There is a very very subtle use of the director call, just a tinge , if you will , of “”jerkiness" in an attempt to get a good board. So now, years later,that smear still remains, and it isn't, believe me, on Peter.

Its interesting to find out that people who one formerly respected could act like jerks. Perhaps everyone can be a jerk at times. My sympathies, Peter and Magnus.

A belated apology is better than no apology at all.

It sounds very much to me like someone was cheating, and it certainly wasn't you! This is disgusting! I 'm glad you told this story, and it does show that some people would do anything to win. How does/ did it feel ever to play against him in the future?
