Name: Fair Play or Foul? - Cheating Scandals in Bridge
Author: Chua, Cathy
Popularity:
Target Audience: Novice+
Category: Entertainment
Pages: 127 Date: 1998

Synopsis: What began as a series of essays that discussed alleged cheating by some of the world's leading players has evolved into an absorbing book that questions the unsatisfactory and biased processes that investigated these claims. The first essay is the truly astonishing story of Willard S. Karn, a player who was about the best in the world in the 1930s until his career was suddenly destroyed by cheating allegations. The second and third look at general issues of cheating in the modern world of bridge through the prism of the cases of Reese-Schapiro (England), the Manoppo brothers (Indonesia) and the Blue Team (Italy). The central question is not whether or not a pair was cheating, but whether the process of investigating these matters can be considered satisfactory.
