Lotans reaction is the reaction of a cheater! You do not have to be Sigmund Freud to see that!

How is it possible that IBF let him represent Israel? In some way I pity Ron Schwartz who for sure seems to be under the spell of Lotan - and now has to pay for this unless he comes to his senses and confess what the whole world can see and know. A confession can reduce the punishment I think.

Fine with me - because they are cheaters and robbers!:)

Why do they call them selves “champions”? They are cheaters and IMHO that has been proven 100%.

And how can they talk about their “good names” - at least Lotan Fisher has cheated several times before!

Dear Saverio!

No italians were or are cheating. They are not guilty!

And if they are - they are not italians!!

We have seen during the last many years that the federations can not managed to catch the cheaters!
But happily Boye and his helpers can do the job - and until now fantastic. I want them to continue the good job. The sooner the better!
Think back 6 weeks. The Bridgeworld has changed dramaticly and for the better because of Boye! Thank you!!

Dear Ellis!

This is not a more or less complicated case. It is in IMHO a very simple case. And of course they have known for more than 4 weeks what was coming. So they have had lot of time to prepare their defence and explain their manners and behavior at the bridge table and make the whole bridge world believe their innocence. They have had several years!!

My clients ( and other accused persons ) were/are innocent or guilty from the second they did what they did. But it is the prosecutors job to prove that they did it and are guilty. That`s how real life is the real court room!

A judge in danish high court once told an accused person who pleaded for justice and only justice: “My good man. Up there where we all go sooner or later you will get justice. Here you will get a decision. Guilty!”

Come on - they have had at least 4 weeks to prepare their defence. Since Boye showed the Jack of Spades.

They are playing on time. How difficult can it be to prepare a defence when you are innocent?

The difficult thing - which takes time - is to prepare a defence when you are guilty! Believe me - I have been a defence lawyer for crooks and criminals for 30 years!

Poor F/S, F/N and S/P! I really pity them!:) ( Joking )
They will now get double punishment - expelled from bridge for years ( I hope!) and now being analyzed by Martin :), other shrinks and readers here on BW!
But they for sure deserve it!! :)

Come on and do not be so negative without trying!

Do you remember when bidding boxes was introduced? And screens? Lot of howling against it - and now? Everybody is happy!

So give it a try!!

I have been an defence advocate for 30 years in more than 300 crime cases. I have seen only one innocent convicted guilty ( and years later the prosecutor excused himself to me) but I have seen many guilty not convicted. And my colleagues defence advocates have the same experience.

In dubio pro reo.

Most of the time you can be 100% sure about guilt but some times only 90%, 80%,70 % sure. Thats the way it is and we must accept this - but how strong evidence we want is very individual.

Tonight I will watch (again) the fantastic movie by Carol Reed starring Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten and music by Anton Karas (you all know the theme when you hear it!):

“THE THIRD MAN”.

Dear Roland!

It is only because Boye went public that we now have such a good and fine discusion on BW - with so many inputs and observations from people who really loves bridge and use so much time to find out what is right and what is wrong. This will NEVER happen in a little federationcourtroom!

And I trust the readers on BW to be able to distinguesh between SE and WE. They will write angry and passionate if there are wrong accusations - be sure of that!:)

We have jurys all over the world with 12 persons who make the verdict guilty or not guilty. Here we have 1000 persons who make their conclusion based on the proofs/evidence etc. shown here on BW.

No one is screaming for blood - just asking for justice based on very strong evidences.

And please tell me a more proper jurisdiction! And do not mention the federations - they have done nothing for years!

Some times the majority is right!

And I do not justice the two pairs guilty because of no defence from them - but because of the outstanding work and analysis from so many bridgeplayers of world class. But usually innocent people speak up against wrong accusations. Silence is a hint - nothing more!

And please notice Roland, that fewer and fewer now defend the two pairs. Do you wonder why? If the evidences are weak or even wrong lot of people will write here and defend the two pairs.

I am not worried to let the readers here on BW judge by them selves - because they are the experts. They are for sure not screaming for blood - You offend many people.

And honestly - do you think F/S and F/N are innocent?

Glad to see that Russell and John read and understand my point.

Some times private persons must take action with the help of followers to prove and reveal the cheaters - and when 1000 pair of eyes search and watch they see much more than 3-6 pair of eyes! And specially when these 3-6 pair of eyes do not take action on rumours through several years and written statements/complaints from players.

Dear Hanan!

Do not change the subject!
Did FS cheat or not?
Did FN cheat or not?

That`s the questions!! The rest is irrelevant!
