Communication from the WBF Credentials Committee

The Credentials Committee of the World Bridge Federation met earlier today. It determined that the invitation extended to Cezary BALICKI and Adam ZMUDZINSKI be withdrawn; consequently they will no longer be eligible to play in the Bermuda Bowl in Chennai.

Chairman of the WBF Credentials Committee


In a further development, the German pair Piekarek - Smirnov has admitted unethical behaviour in the past. This matter has been passed to the Disciplinary Committee for examination and assessment. 

The two players have been suspended with immediate effect. 


The EBL has received formal requests from several NBOs to investigate the allegations of cheating by two partnerships that have recently been published and supported by prima facie evidence. 

EBL President, Yves Aubry, has nominated Executive Committee members Eric Laurant and Jan Kamras, Disciplinary Committee member Jean Paul Meyer, together with a panel of expert players (who will be nominated shortly) to an Investigation Committee.

The Investigation Committee shall collect all available evidence, present the evidence to the partnerships involved, giving them the opportunity to respond and present their own exculpatory evidence, evaluate all such evidence to arrive at an opinion on culpability, and present those findings to the Executive Committee and, if necessary, to the Disciplinary Committee.
