I want to say that I express no political opinions on this site, only sadness and solidarity.

So…feeling generous, I will happily take both Joel and Alan to brunch. I think Joel's revision to no shortness is better, but I should note a miswording on my part. I intended to define the degree of insufficiency as shortfall vs trump length not a fixed number 7. Both Joel's and Alan's solutions have degree 49.
Again feeling generous I will add a third brunch to a still higher insufficiency.

The Bertens note illustrates clearly a flaw in the laws.I have read Love many times and might still f*** up a compound (or simpler) squeeze at the table. Claims on hands with a hitch: specific play sequences, or blockages or overtaking,or ruffing high, should require an affirmative statement of play without which the claim should be judged invalid. In other words, the claimant should affirmatively point out the hitch.

to saverio and kenny: in the original KS there were controlled psyches and the ACBL convention card included a checkbox for controlled psyches. i do not know the acbl regulations, but these seem to have disappeared. my question to you both is the following: suppose someone had on his CC the following 1NT (3d seat): 13-15 OR 0-5. would you consider that permissible? i also seem to recall (but may be wrong) that when soloway was playing ATTACK, zia and michael had an issue with “controlled” psyches there as well. Can you both/either enlighten me and express your opinions?

I have made this suggestion elsewhere but I believe it bears repeating: The only way to guarantee a vigorous purging of cheaters and no political interference is to have a permanent, independent, self-financed ethics commission within the WBF with a mandate to remove demonstrable cheaters and not beholden to the other board members. Removing someone from this committee should be difficult, like impeachment, perhaps requiring a 2/3 public vote.

Fabulous Avon. Did I mention that Sepp Blatter will join the WBF board when his current job ends?

excellent summary for the lay public- except FN cheated on defense.

VA… You are making an equity argument-which may be compelling. Yet, it is another matter to simply say: if you are caught cheating now, you lose all prior titles. That is simply a penalty assessment. BTW, the NBOs could choose to strip titles from cheating pairs without penalizing teammates whose ethics are not questioned. It would be funny but not impossible to say Sontag-Weichsel won the Teams (with no awarded teammates).

Perhaps Martin Winterkorn will take up bridge in his retirement. (satire warning…please don't take seriously)

For this to be true, a fourth “retiring” squad must be one of the three other originals to qualify. (obviously)
