I would be suspicious. Here's why: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQvwZ1ncDZY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DLqoGbrDGM
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
It did. The CAS panel chose not to accept this. From the CAS panel's perspective (from reading their report) they believed that they had lots of things to decide upon. Were FN cheating? From the bridge expert witness's testimony it did not seem so. The statistics were high ...
The Trombones vs the Dalmatians
South's pregnant dog met North's fed dog: http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?linurl=http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/vugraph_linfetch.php?id=7081 Pregnant dogs occur (from a computer simulation) about every 0.18% of boards. Here's one from the Bermuda Bowl this year: http://www ...

CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
The "no direct evidence" is amusing. What good is video? As Greg pointed out, this is an opinion of one of FN's experts. Dr. Viret is a sports' lawyer, specializing in anti-doping, https://www.lawinsport.com/item/marjolaine-viret
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
The CAS panel seemed to believe in the "hit-rate" view of statistics, not the actual probability. This is wrong. Unfortunately it was used by EBL in an early statement. The CAS panel did not seem to understand the concept of vertical/horizontal. The CAS panel did not believe in fresh ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
