I disagree, Kate.
Correcting to 6H is normal.
Hard to believe that there is a hand where 6D is better than 6H, from South's POV, even if you factor in hands where North is acting “solo”.

If North wanted to be truly ethical, he could have planned the auction over 3S and at least made the rest of his (non 4C) bids in tempo. This might help give the impression that his tank was “planning the auction” rather than “I have a problem over here.”

If the bids were in tempo by North, I doubt if South would pass.
Seems like a normal score adjustment to me.

Adjust the score to -490, give EW a procedural penalty and give South a smack on the head !

I was sympathetic to rehabilitation of cheaters. I think you present a persuasive case.
Being banned from playing bridge is not like spending your life in jail.

There needs to be a strong deterrent.

Hi Kit, It is impressive how you manage to be such a prolific publisher. I was busy congratulating myself on quickly spotting running the D9, but your analysis shows how it is actually a mistake (at least on paper). 6=2=3=2 East and the D are 3-3 and 7=2=2=2 you make on the other line you demonstrate.
Great hand and thanks again for continuing to generate such fantastic material !

A very logical proposal. Urge the authorities to take action.

There is no need to vilify the player in question or question his intent.

The director should change the score and award a procedural penalty.

The culture will automatically get better.

“Since the diamond continuation is a LA, it must be required.” Agree

A win for the legal process, a loss for the truth. A casualty of modern times.

I disagree with the purported complexity of the goal of bidding.

The goal of bidding is to have the best possible score.

If one can simulate a range of scenarios and accurately apply appropriate weights and evaluations to them, any bridge bidding action (in theory) should be quantifiable.

My view is that terms like preemption, bidding for the lead, constructive bidding are just useful for didactic value. They are not philosophical cornerstones of the game; they are just terms for human understanding and expression.

The language of data-driven computers is different. It does not require such terms.
