Which is an excellent reason why Mr. Blubaugh has not responded. He was suspended a few days ago and his comment removed when he basically posted a threat against me that was flagged! The sad history of cheating at bridge can be found at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheating_in_bridge ...

Gary, very quickly (leaving for Charleston, SC awesome New Years Regional :), it was always a struggle getting the Board to pass progressive legislation.

Given what we know today, why would anyone (unless of course they are being paid and/or are cheating) want to bless any WBF event with their presence? The fix is in, it has always been in. From the Blue Team to the Cars to Fantoni/Nunes and many, many ...

Please... this topic has been discussed on numerous separate threads... many (count me among them) would be horrified at the thought. It would not be the same sociable game we all love and enjoy. Others believe it is the way of the future, perhaps reserved for later rounds in World ...

Michael, you wrote "..I’d rather a few cheats go unpunished than that innocent players get hung out to dry by a pack mob howling for blood...". Noble sentiments indeed but not very original. I'm not a trained lawyer as you are, but is it not a cornerstone of ...
