2N was alerted, and 3 was not; no inquiry by EW. After the auction concluded, E inquired and was informed that NS do play Lebensohl, but S had no idea what the alert meant until her partner explained as a result of EW's inquiry. She was "out to lunch," but she intended 2N as invitational. NS had never had a Lebensohl auction where two suits were involved, and it is very likely that ths was a "no agreement, dancing as fast as I can" situation. NS reached the optimal contract, one that other pairs also reached.

Is Rule 16 analysis appropriate? What was the UI?

Is "create imaginary screens" analysis appropriate?

Is this "rub of the green"?

Please provide your analyses.
