Michael: would you with QX in clubs, considered playing a small heart at trick 3. It looks rather stupid not to if your partner got J/jx in clubs. I believe you would option this, and therefore the percentegae play would lead to finessing the club suit

Tom, there are certainly lawyers out there who like skimming hours. The interesting question is who are funding this for them. I doubt they have cash for it, without any helpers

He had one full match of 16 boards, plus the the minor set he was refering to. The full match was conclusive enough, and for obvious reasons discarded

The evidence shout. What is to be discussed in this thread ? The evidence?

I don't think Poland can afford to keep a title like this, no matter what the law is.

They did “the wrong thing” by playing BB, hoping for BZ not to be convicted. They took a bet against the bridge community and the great spirits of Israel, Monaco and Germany. It seems as if Poland picked the wrong bet on our expence. Nothing can make up for that, but to recover some trust I think it Poland should start picking their actions carefully.

Occo, i did not reply as I did not see it as a question. Boye speaks for himself, same as you do, without any help from any buddy. My comment might be bad, but seeing yours, at least i dont feel alone in that category. I will give no further replies to this thread.

Your boyfriend is out 11 out of 12 nights, and a friend of yours saw him leave a hotelroom with a girl every single time that he was out. Would you take him for being a cheat, or would you say I love you and i dont have any evidence you did something wrong. By the way, thanks for spending one lovely night together with me the other day….

Ed, I was told that I had the possiblity to do so from the TD and it was repeated by officials in Norway that this was within the Law. I am not stating we should break the law, more letting people know this is a possibility within the Law. I did not know about this untill 2 years ago. I assume most people are unaware of it.

I dont know if there are different laws with different content. For all I know it might not apply to the Laws of ACBL

Michael
I appreciate your well placed comments. If we all were consious about this topic, i think the liars would stand out rather quickly! It will give pain in a board or two, i will survive that

Peter and David,
You got my core point. There will always be disagreement between cultures. It's how we solve these differences that matters, and in the end makes us move forward.

Without making any statistics around it, you still could look at the BZ thread and guess nationality just by the content of the comment.

I think people who will get offended by this proposal will understand the motivation behind the offer. Our game would be at the best!

Because the rules and consequences are not equal with the system as it is. I medio player is much more likely to object/call TD against a weaker player rather than a WC player.

Ed, i would love to play against you. You have a clear opinion how you want to deal with it. Thats my essence, i want to k
now what I am up against :)

Yehudit: I am not all saying I will ignore the rules. But there are different opinons about this, if not Boyes thread would not have as many comments as it has.

Gordon, it probably would not be possible to sort out. Back in the good old days though…..
Ray, you missed my point as I was just offering to give, not to take.

Andy,
I do understand the role of a TD perfectly. But I also have an understanding that our Laws are not perfect, and that TDs make errors as well as the players. Why should not players have the possiblity to sort this out between them, rather than spending late nights in committes ?

I had a world class players leading the nine of spades against my 6 H dbl. After seeing parts of dummy he picked up his card (screens) and changed his lead for a diamond. Word against word (and no video) with the TD and i was judged for down one instead of making.

I thought the TD made a big error, as this probably was the first and last time he ever had to handle an issue like this.

Just to be clear, I am not stating that we don't need a TD, just saying the simple black and white situations could easily be solved at the table by the players. And for most cases, its actually being done this way.

Gonzalo,
I have experienced over the last 10 years that most top players are great people as well. I am willing to take another “hit” by being generous. Thats a low cost for me to have my opponents categorized for future.

I think the two of us wouldnt have any problems sorting this out at the table :)

You call for TD and get a ruling as normal. When ruling comes, you can decide to un call for TD. Result at table stands.
