Ohhh* Uhhh*nauthorized Information

Hey there,

last Monday I was officially director in our local club for the second time and had much work to do.

A fouled board here and a revoke & a psyche there, bidding & playing right up to "Trick 6" with cards from wrong board (the board before) and a more interesting UI case, can you help me with this?

N/S (advanced(-) players) are playing Forum D (5-card M system 95% like SAYC)

E/W (intermediate(-) players) not a standard partnership are playing Forum D as well; they have discussed "systems on" after a 1NT-overcall.

All four players are well known for fairness.

 

North calls the director after the 2 bid and this are the facts (all players agree):

1. 2  was alerted but no reaction by West

2. East bids 2 and now West says: "UhhOhh"

You interview East/ West seperated & offside the table and get following information:

West: "2 was an unintended call, I was sure my bid was 2 = "Transfer to "

East: "I wanted to bid 2 directly after 2, there are not 14 cards of hearts in the game and  it was clear that 2 was an unintended call but I am not sure about all the rules, so my choice was to complete the transfer at this moment.

 

What is your ruling?

Case (1): 2 is passed out.

Case (2): North bids 3 over 2 and bidding ends in 3 by N/S.

 

I really appreciate any help you can proivde Smile
