WOLFSON Wins Vanderbilt
Alex and Peter: The good guys have won.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Justin, you feel that bridge is doomed because its based on an "honour system" but there is plenty of research to suggest that is not necessarily true; in fact an honour system can last for 100s of years and Avner Grief won a Nobel Prize showing how it had worked ...
Statement by WBF ( Oct 9, 2015)
Both cricket and Chess have experienced turmoil when players lost faith in their respective institutions. Breakaways were formed and although it was far from easy, in both cases the point was made. Eventually both games regrouped and became stronger for it. Reform or we leave. If the WBF continue to ...

Players cheating at bridge is not a scandal.There are bad guys in every walk of life. The real scandal is that so far several authorities have been either slow, reluctant or possibly even negligent in using any evidence and information to stop and expose cheating. The point of an ...
Germany to Withdraw from Bermuda Bowl
That's a good question Jack and I'm surprised it wasn't asked before. My understanding is that cheating is in fact more widespread than first thought and it is more likely to end here if more pairs admit wrongdoing. However that is more unlikely if PS are punished ...
Videos added to Bridgecheaters Website
There is a danger that the process for dealing with a pair who have been alleged to have cheated may get bogged down due to lack of resources. It is quite reasonable to expect the police to act quickly if you have been assaulted because that's what they are ...
