Since I have read the article about this deal in The Bridge World magazine back in 1996 or early 1997, it is quite likely that I forgot details. I kept only a copy of deal diagram. Thank you for correcting my comment.

At all tables where hearts were played, all declarers went one down regardless of the level (4, 6 or 7). All of them took a reasonable line of play.

At the very moment of my heart showing misbid I knew my bid could not be alerted. My English is poor and it is obvious that I can not express my thoughts clearly , therefore I surrender and sincerely apologize for taking so much of your time.

I intended to show spades but my misbid showed hearts. Opener`s lack of alert confirmed that he assumed I showed hearts, so how could he raise spades? Only if my facial expression or gesture at the moment of misbid gave him a clue. If that was the case, there is no doubt an ethical issue.
How can it be ethical to take advantage of opener`s unethical behavior and bid 4 to play? I bid 4 as a try to land in 5 by passing expected 5 cue.

If lack of alert is unauthorized information and alert is misinformation, both calls are illegal.
Anyway, I would treat 3 bid as an extremely strong raise of hearts (splinter?) and bid 4 cue hoping to hear 5 cue which I can pass. If opener makes any other bid or pass, I will accept director`s decision.

I would probably play 6 doubled. Another possibility is 4 (cue) - 5(cue) - pass. I have only disputed the existence of UI.

But opener could not alert 1 as showing spades. Their agreement is that 1 shows hearts.

I must have misunderstood the problem. By partnership agreement 1 showed hearts, opener did not alert, so he expected hearts in partner`s hand. No UI so far. 1 bidder said he was immediately aware of his misbid. If he made some facial expression or a gesture at the moment, that could have been UI.

Responder could alert his bid only if the game was played online or with the use of screens. Openers failure to alert and illogical (under assumption that partner had hearts) 3 bid is highly suspicious. Would he splinter with x AKQx Ax AKxxxx?

Since 1 is natural in your methods, there was no UI.

You could have said: “Serious players do not play with robots”

If East holds 6-card heart suit, making 7NT is improbable. If I pass, the bidding is not over, partner heard Lightner double too.
