Unfortunate Result
If you look at the NS hands only, what contract do you want to be in after the auction to 5?
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: KJT x Kxxxx KQTx
What are the 5 bidders afraid of? I.e., what are hands where partner would bid slam over 5, but we don't want to be there? Meanwhile, if he has a spade void (likely) and two minor aces, slam is gin, but how could he do more ...
Robot Blanks King - Watch Out!
I don't think this is mysterious - GIB didn't know you had 6 hearts, so he was defending against you having started with 2533, and having A and 8 left after discarding to trick 11. Sometimes it's important to give away your shape against the bots ;)

Guidelines for BBO Vugraph Commentators
I sometimes hop around, but when there is a world-class player (or former world class player, Larry!) commentating, I usually choose (C).
The Next Step
Andy, I think you and Boye/Les are talking about two different code of conducts: 1. Andy says by law it is fine to create UI with out-of-tempo signals (as long as you have an actual bridge problem). 2. Among top players, it seems understood that it is almost impossible ...
