Join Bridge Winners
Three years

According to the following article, the FIGB could not ban F+N from bridge for more than three years because of regulations imposed by the Italian Olympic Committee. http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/f-n-each-banned-for-3-years-according-to-imp-magazine/

Few quick questions / comments

  1. Does the ACBL view multiple instances of cheating by a single pair to be a first offense?
  2. Does the ACBL consider itself bound by any similar regulations?
  3. Should the ACBLconsidersevering bonds between itself and the Olympics in order to maintain flexibility wrt sentencing?

I have long been opposed to efforts to recognize Bridge as an Olympic sport.

  • I think that its a waste of time and effort
  • I don't think that you can reconcile the ideals of the Olympics with pro-client relationships
  • I find the practicalities of the Olympics (i.e. rampant bribery) sufficiently seedy that I have no wish to be involved with it
  • Drug testing is going to open a never ending world of suck

I am hopeful that this latest round of idiocy might prove sufficieint to put a stake in the heart of Olympic Bridge once and for all...
