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!

Does it matter, Manuela?
The important thing is to find and convict the cheaters - better now than never.
It has not been done before - so what?? They still have to be kicked out of bridge!!

Honestly - why does Carls opinion matter? He will not see the evidence.
Why are you trying to convince him? Let him have his opinion on F/S cheating in peace!

I think the logical way is, that the player who is not handling the bridgemate handles the tray. It is not so difficult to think about your lead using your hands but more difficult thinking about your lead using your brain and attention to the bridgemate.

Dear Timo!

I have now seen the bidding to 6D contract.

Now you tell me how the club trick can disappear if you do not lead the CA.

And by the way - dummy has not during the bidding shown a running spade suit!

Looking forward to your answer!:)

They have to sue BB in Norway. It is a fundamental legal princip that you have to sue your opponent in the legal jurisdictional area where he is living. Because then you can be sure that the countrys authorities will help you to get your money if you win. If BB is sued in Israel or USA and is sentenced to pay to RS-then they can not be sure, that the norwegian authorities will accept the verdict from Israel or USA and help RS to get the money!

So only 1!

Kit thinks they are cheaters - but try to be 100% sure and convince himself.

And how many WC players think they are cheaters?

I have noticed that many WC players during the years have been sure of FS`cheating. And now on BW some of them write about their experience etc.

Now I ask: Are there any WC players who defend FS?
