Dirty Tricks (Klaf Meluchlach)

Dirty Tricks

Welcome to the world of competitive bridge. Far removed from the recreational card game enjoyed by millions of senior citizens around the world, it is a cutthroat world where billionaires sponsor elite players in ruthless high-stakes tournaments. The world’s best player is Israeli Lotan Fisher, who earns millions and dominates nearly every bridge tournament he plays in. At the age of 26, he is an international bridge superstar, known as ‘The Michael Jordan of Bridge’. He seems unstoppable until his arch nemesis, Norwegian Boye Borgland, accuses him of having cheated throughout his entire career. Lotan vehemently denies the accusation and things escalate, putting millions of dollars and both players' lucrative careers at stake.

The truth behind one of the world’s most bizarre feuds is revealed in a thrilling true-crime documentary, which unravels a massive controversy that threatens to bring down the entire world of competitive bridge.
