Indeed the only reason I posted the hand was to find out if people favoured 1N over 1C. I wasn't anticipating any other responses! Based on the result I might to a follow up poll to see how people would bid after 1C - 1S

Why is the spade ace more likely than the heart ace? NS’s bidding is nuts in either case so I’m not sure how I can work out which!

Why should declarer draw the inference that East has no spade?

Obviously you should state a line of play, but I find it hard to believe that the opponents were quite so penickety. If my opponent were to do this without a statement then I would say “what’s your claim?” If he still didn’t mention ruffing the spade I would consider calling the director at a high level competition

In any case I’ve added it in the body for clarity in case other people don’t read the comments

Yes the misdefence was irrelevant to the UI. Thanks for your explanation

Apparently I have misunderstood the bridge sense of the word “damaged”. What I meant was: Were EW affected negatively by UI or any other unlawful methods on this hand when 5D made 12 tricks (on misdefence)?

@Buddy Either before the opening lead or on the final round of bidding (I think it was after the bidding but I'm not 100% sure), West enquired about 3S and that's when South said she believed it was a splinter

Playing kickback, shouldn’t 4N show a control in diamonds/hearts depending on what p thinks trumps are?

Doubt this one has happened much
(1H) - P - (3H) - X
(4H) - P - (P) - 5D
(P) - 7S - (X)
The partner of the doubler held an Ace and KQ of trumps.
I was playing with and against BBO robots. 5D was described as “29-30 points”.
Before anyone criticises my bidding, I was just messing around one night. I know 4D direct is much better than initial double

The chance that declarer holds J is very slight indeed!
