What's the ethical thing to do when partner misreviews auction?
I assumed the ‘keep quiet’ option related to what to do at that moment - there is a possibility that partner may wake up of their own accord and the problem disappear.
Director?
I have abstained since I think the director should be called but for the reason that (however impractical ) I believe that pairs playing systemic very wide range preempts should be automatically recorded so that the evidence is there to support their ability to guess.
David Corn's bidding problem: KQ963 975 KQ5 65
Though I am a 3S bidder I don't play that 4S is stronger(such a hand starts with a cuebid). I prefer 4S to be similar to a 3S opener so that partner has a better idea of what to do if eg they've doubled with a hand ...
What's wrong with opening 1!h?

TD please
As Trevor suggests,once you shown a hand too strong for a spade overcall then you’re not implying anything about Hearts at all.
TD please
Gregory - IMO holding a weak hand with long hearts and a void spade then 1H is the correct bid .It is far more likely that partner has a hand too strong to overcall 1S rather than a normal double with the auction dying in 1H. I would have offered up ...
Bill March's lead problem: Q 7654 JT85 QT64
I think in principle 3 suited, 4441 or some variation of (345)1 - at the table it was 4441.
