What is your reference? Siniscalco Chiaradia was the creator of Neapolitan.

Forquet and Garozzo with Mingoni authored The Italian Blue Team Bridge Book, 1969.

Originally published in Italian under the title "Il Fiori Blue Team, 1967"

Maybe you read Danny Kleinman's analysis where Garozzo & Forquet deviated so much from their agreements that it was had to tell what system they were playing?

Noted in "Under The Table" book by Avon.
Ultra Relay: see Daniel's web page: https://bridgewithda...19/07/Ultra.pdf
C3: Copious Canapé is still my favorite system. (Ultra upgraded, PM for notes)

Played Mosca (Nightmare-Fantunes-Millennium like) system with Canapé, 11-14 NT.

Santa Fe Precision published 8/19. TOP3 published 11/20. Magic experiment (Science Modernized) with Lenzo. 2020: Jan Eric Larsson's Cottontail Club. 2020: C3 Reborn - T-Precision with Relays & 4cd M. BFUN (Bridge For the UNbalanced) 2021: Weiss Simplified (Canapé & Relay). 2022: Canary Modernized.

Read "Under the Table", the case against the Blue Team, by Avon Wilsmore. The book details suspicious bidding and play by Blue Team members.

Chiaradia, not Siniscalco

Here is an article that has some instances of "interesting" Blue Team actions:

http://bridgewinners...blue-team-rule/

On the subject of divergences from stated Blue Club/Neapolitan methods, I think that after the second hand on p12, Forquet and Siniscalco should have been escorted to separate rooms and asked to explain the auction. Failing some good explanation, that should have been their last board in a representative event.
