Big congrats to Erik Sælensminde and his partner Morten Olsen
Link doesn't appear to work. Can someone please relay further details...Who were the identified cheaters? What was the event? Who organized it?

With which of these hands would you invite?
I don't understand how people can give meaningful answers without... (a) seeing the full hand, especially club spots (KQT9xx is very different from KQxxxx), and (b) knowing whether it's teams or pairs
