Slap in the Face
Sartaj, I am not in Wuhan but since nobody has mentioned otherwise I presume this offensive display with pictures of numerous cheaters wearing medals and waving trophies is still on display on Day 5 as players arrive. Are there not continuing protests by players at the venue?
Slap in the Face
Although betting is not allowed in the WBF rules I would be willing to wager that even the WBF will take these posters down before the second day of play. But then again I wouldn't take really short odds.
Slap in the Face
GUBU is the word to describe this action by the WBF. Grotesque, Unbelievable, Bizarre and Unprecedented. Much more than a slap in the face to all the hundreds of us whom these guys have robbed. The WBF is putting the blame on the Olympic movement that they can do nothing ...

Drop-Outs from World Championships
Presume that these were countries that qualified from their Zones but decided not to enter the World Championships for whatever reason, financial or otherwise. Don't know of any entry that then cancelled unless you want to put Monaco in that category.
Watching Videos of F-N from Opatija
Hi Norbert, great that you have seen and sent (to French organisers of event) video from 2013 and prior to 2013(?) that you believe confirms what you noticed in National Final of the Coupe de France. Can you post links to these videos on Bridgewinners?
