about me

I just love bridge, which I have done ever since my grandparents taught me the game when I was 8. Today I run a bridge magazine, Bridge in Norway, write a bridge column in a newspaper three days a week, and play for Norway and professionally in the best events around the world. I also have a wife who is a fine bridge player, and this year our son won the U16 European Pairs Championships! It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our daughter (now four) away from this addictive and beautiful game.

Peeking
Further down in the thread there seems to be information that it was dummy looking at the hand of the opening leader. Even though it’s not allowed to do so, it’s a big difference from a cheating point of view. If that was the case, I would think ...
Peeking
Disqualify for sure, and report the incident to the bridge organization where the competition was played. Hopefully it would result in a ban for the peeking player. This is cheating.
Thank you Zia!
Thanks for sharing this incredible and warm story, Mariusz. You truly deserve the medal - what you did for bridge was golden. Zia has been my idol ever since I read «Roll over, Houdini» some 30 years ago, and grew even a few inches more after this beautiful gesture.
Crunch Time
This battle is too important not to fight. Sure, the «game» may seem rigged in favor of the cheats because of CAS, but if we don’t play we can’t win. Don’t let the cheats, the lawyers and the financial risk keep holding this game hostage. It’s ...
Crunch Time
Felix. A more relevant question as an anology to the Fantoni/Nunes situation: Do you believe that Nassar, if exonerated by any court, should be taken back as the USA gymnastics national team doctor?
Crunch Time
I would prefer if it was «one for all, all for one», but that’s not realistic as people are not prepared to make the same sacrifices. Not everybody is as wound up as us about FN and other cheats. Hopefully it won’t be necessary as EBL will protect ...
Crunch Time
There are quite a few people at the EBL who I really trust to do the right thing and disallow Fantoni and/or Nunes to participate. To name a few: Jan Kamras (Sweden), Eric Laurant (The Netherlands) and Kari-Anne Opsal (Norway). The EBL has already spent loads of money on ...
Crunch Time
What I would like to see is (more) people turning up in Istanbul for this great event, and for the EBL to protect the integrity of the game by refusing Fantoni and/or Nunes to take part. I believe the EBL will do that as they have handled cheating very ...
Crunch Time
Fighting cheating is do or die for bridge (as a competitive sport/game).
Crunch Time
One would hope that Fantoni and Nunes finally showed some decency and didn’t show up for a tournament where they are not welcome. One would hope that the EBL and other bridge organizations took necessary actions to avoid cheats to play. If none of this happens, I hope bridge ...
