Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Was GIB programmer sane?
Steven is spot on. Sometimes GIB does stuff like this, especially at MP. We with our mortal minds cannot comprehend its will.
You Be The Judge - hand from Wernher Pairs
I don't mind the initial pass if that's your style, but then double is automatic by North. This is a completely different auction from if East was dealer and South's decision to sit is crazy IMO. Auto 4NT. We might still get to -650 at that point ...

Play Problem in 3NT
Low toward hand also makes it hard for E to rise from an honor in clubs to clear diamonds.
Club Ruling
Couldn't E/W have the (admittedly insane) agreement that 2 shows a transfer to spades over the 2 call, when 2 is explained correctly? And in South's world, isn't this then effectively what happened at the table? I mean, West DID have a 5 ...
