Confession of a Self-Kibitzer


Michal Nowosadzki 11 hours ago


EDITOR'S NOTE: Though Mr. Nowosadzki is not a native English speaker, Bridge Winners made an exception to its normal policy of editing featured articles to present Mr. Nowosadzki's statement in his own words.




Hello everyone. I have something terrible to confess. I’ve cheated. I did some self - kibitzing. Well, a lot of self - kibitzing to be honest. Most of you that know me are probably shocked right now. I have to say I am shocked by myself as well. I will start with apologizing to everybody. I would like especially to apologize to my partner and all teammates. They had no idea what was going on. it was me and me only. I am sorry. In particular I want to apologize to Josef, who is putting his whole heart into the game and by my actions I have also exposed his name into some harm. I want to apologize to all the people that gave me support in 4333 case and in general to all the people and friends who believed in me. You put your trust in me. I let you down really badly. I cheated you. I lied to you. I am sorry. Obviously I want to apologize to all the opponents that I’ve cheated. Special apology also goes to Peter Fredin. Most of you don't know that, but Peter apologized to me privately after accusing me of cheating. It turned out that it should be the opposite. Peter, you were right about me and I am truly sorry. Finally I want to apologize to all the bridge enthusiasts for spoiling the integrity of our beautiful game. I hope I did not miss anyone.


I feel really bad for what I did. It was not only very bad but also extremely stupid. I might say it was one of the most moronic things I did in my whole life. That fact should not really matter - cheating is awful by itself, but I could gain so little by doing that and lose so much (and I probably will) that it made no sense at all. I want to be absolutely clear that I find no excuse for my actions. Therefore the purpose of everything that is written below is not to make myself look less bad, but to give you some details and maybe make things a little better if possible.


It first happened in march, I think near the end of the month. I was really tired in the evening. I have a 7 months old daughter, so I am not getting too much sleep. I also had to take care of her at the time. So the dog was barking, the baby was crying, I was barely conscious at the moment, so I said to myself: ok, lets see all the hands to avoid any stupid mistakes. I will play in a "normal” way anyway. After the match I was like: you idiot, what are you doing?! First of all you are cheating people that know you and trust you (some of them call you a friend) and above of that you are risking your good name and maybe your career for what?! Stop it right now! Well, not exactly. It happened again. If you ask me why I can not give you a clear reason. Maybe because it was so easy and playing this way was so easy. I don’t know. I was always thinking of myself as a good guy. I am still trying to think that I am a good guy that has done a wrong thing, but the problem is that good guys usually do the right things. Anyway at some point it became to be like a drug and I was an addict. I felt bad about it. I tried to stop. Sometimes I did put my phone away just not to do it, but after some boards I took it anyway. It took me almost three months to finally wake up. Three months to late. I stopped it completely and definitely like a month ago. I am done with this and this will never happen again. The only good thing about all this is that I stopped by myself. Maybe it will make some difference at least to some of you. I did not "watch” all the time but It was happening regularly during this whole period of time. Obviously I have made some plays which I might not/probably won’t/very likely won’t or for sure won’t find if not knowing all the cards. And obviously those plays changed the outcome of some matches, of which at least a few were knockouts. Some of these plays were really "brilliant”. Of course I was trying to be smart and avoid those kinds of plays but apparently I fell into some kind of an illusion and my judgement was not right. Not that it would change anything if I succeed in that matter. Here we are coming to the point that the fact that no one had any idea is not 100% true. After some of these brilliant plays Jacek began to suspect something. He asked me like at least ten times if I am knowing the hands and every time I lied to him that I do not. We are a partnership for eight years. We’ve been through a lot together. He trusted me. He believed me. He put my word above his feeling, This time he was wrong. I let him down. Once again: sorry Partner. One thing I can assure you of, that I and we never cheated anyone in live bridge. While you don’t have to believe a cheater that already lied to you, you can ask him. He is the one you can trust. We have won a lot together. The fact that even a single person might right now question a fairness of our achievements makes what I did even more stupid.


I don’t know if I would get caught if I won’t confess. It is likely that at some point someone will examine the boards or the other kind of data and find out, but i might as well get away with it. Doesn’t matter right now. I just cannot keep it inside me anymore. I want to sleep at night again. Even if I got hammered here, which I deserve.


It is not my call to apply the proper punishment and actions to make it up a little to a bridge community but I have some ideas:


Assuming that anyone would still like to play with me I can offer myself to play some decent number of boards, f.e. 500, either with some juniors or people that will pay some money for it, which would go to some kind of charity. Optionally I can double the amount or pay some kind of fixed amount.


For sure I should take some time off. Again it is not me to decide how long it should be. For the very moment I have excluded myself from this week tournament we were supposed to play. That seemed obvious.


I hope one day I will be forgiven.


That was about me. Now I would like to write some words about cheating in online bridge in general. It doesn’t at all change the view of what I did but I know (or maybe I should write I am 99% sure) that I am not the only one. I have like ten names in my head. The names of the guys that made many suspicious plays and most of them were successful. (that’s kind of funny that I’ve noticed their actions while at the same time I thought that mine are not suspicious at all). Of course I am not going to write a single name here but I think if you ask ten or twenty ALT or OCBL "regulars”, they will mostly come up with the same names. So guys you should know you were not unnoticed. I guess some of you maybe stopped on the way. I am not a sheriff here. I am a bad guy. But if I were you I would strongly consider to confess. Or if for any reason you don’t want to, at least stop doing what you are doing. I know some of you better, some a little worse, but my opinion is that none of you would even think of cheating in a live bridge. This online thing is going to last at least for some time, whether we like it or not. We have made a big mess. Let’s try to clean it up and start over. Let’s try to make this thing as close to a real game as possible. For myself and for all of you: I hope it is not too late.

职业牌手追求结果和高额利益,业余爱好者追求过程和娱乐交流。一旦竞赛和金钱利益挂上钩,失去道德底线,作弊毒瘤会无限滋生漫延。就像竟技体育中的兴奋剂,铤而走险,屡禁不止。
