With regard to Boye Brogeland’s initiative to vacate US National titles, Lorenzo Lauria – member of team Cayne – has released the following statement to Neapolitan Club and NewInBridge:
“For the time being I don’t intend to vacate the title recently won in Chicago (Spingold 2015). I think we deserved it because our teammates Cayne and Seamon did not touch a wrong card from start to finish, always bringing back a good list. Alfredo and me played really well too. During the final, Alfredo and I played four rounds, where the Israeli played two and rather underperformed.
We cannot generalise: if the sports judge will trial the Israeli and will find suspicious hands in this tournament, Alfredo and I will accept that the title will be taken from us.”.
