I sat North. Apologies for not looking at the hand closely enough before I posted. East lead a trump. I won on board. Lead a to the King with no real hope of it winning. East won and lead another trump. I won in dummy and lead another . West went up with the Queen and led a Club.

After the hand was over, E/W were saying they could make 4. I did NOT mention the misdefense.

Obviously I did not look at hands close enough before I posted. East/West said they could make 4 and I took their word for it. Mea culpa.

Basic Chart allows any artificial 1 response to any 1 opening.

You are not missing anything. However I do not expect to be playing in any game that uses the Baic or Basic+ Chart.

David, what does 5NT show? I would take to to be invitational to 7NT.

Well I thought 4NT was quantitative. Didn’t know what to bid. Just bid 6NT as general value bid.

I was the Director. I did not give a PP and I did not think it was even close to a PP. The East hand bid 4. Personally, I would have doubled. I gave EW an A-. I reluctantly did not post this as a poll because I used the results in real time. I did have a lengthy discussion with the East player the next day and explained the reason for the A-. I also asked if there was indeed a long hesitation by West. East said “Extremely long.” Thanks for all the comments and analysis. FWIW, I think West had a clear-cut 4 bid.

I am pretty sure that I would double at matchpoints. After the long hesitation, I would pass. Agree totally with Kit that -140 rates to be a bad score. But after the long hesitation, I pass even though I think it is not the percentage call.
