EW 2N; EW 3♣; EW 1♠;

NS 1♦; Par - 120

 

Notes:

3♣ show 2 suited hand with ♠ & ♦, but no alert from her partner

3♠ bid naturally cause he think North bid is preemptive with 6 or 7 ♣

P by South without alert

The contract turns out 3♠-2, East called the director, and states there is failure alert , and he got damaged by mislead information. North said his ♣ bid is cue-bid and self-alert, if East has question he should ask before he start to play.

The question is:

1. is North statement is true?

2. is the 3♣ need to be alert by South?

3. what is the director's judgement for failure alert?
