Now there are screens so that partners can't see each other.
The Italian team was accused of cheating on more than one occasion. "In the "1975 Bermuda Bowl Incident", newspaper correspondent Bruce Keidan observed Italian team partners Gianfranco Facchini and Sergio Zucchelli were using foot signals to communicate under the table during bidding and before opening leads. Reported to the tourney committee who assigned observers to confirm the findings, small coffee tables were ultimately placed diagonally under the tables. These events led to screen usage in major tournaments." http://www.bridgehands.com/C/Cheating.htm
