In their book  Y Eliashberg and W Thurston gave a definition of tight confoliations. We give an example of a tight confoliation on T 3 violating the Thurston-Bennequin inequalities. This answers a question from  negatively. Despite this, it is still possible to prove restrictions on homotopy classes of plane fields which contain tight confoliations. The failure of the Thurston-Bennequin inequalities for tight confoliations is due to the presence of overtwisted stars. Overtwisted starsdoi:10.2140/gt.2011.15.41 fatcat:d6ys72epczdylhsmnenpzowcmi
