Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Was this a fielded psyche and is the psychic bidder allowed to coach his client when the director is called?
Maybe never, but not NEVER. (3x)-3NT- P-? And responder holds 21 HCP, or a 9 Card suit, I’d guess the pro would want his partner to bid.
10 to 19 No Trump
Kit, you are mistaken. There are plenty of bids that can be, and are regulated. Natural NT openings are regulated; both by range and shape, although these proscriptions do not apply to a psych. Strong, Forcing, Artificial bids are also regulated; you are not allowed to psych such bids.
10 to 19 No Trump
Steve is correct.

Mike: You aren’t Thinking the way some weak players think. They see a bid they can pass, and that partner is going to play the hand. That is enough for them to pass. See Kit’s response below,
Was this a fielded psyche and is the psychic bidder allowed to coach his client when the director is called?
Sure. The same can be said for bidding 1. The point is, we have no evidence that this is a protected psych.

But partner can easily have a 19 count that will be bidding 4 or a splinter. The pro did not have protection from that.

I wouldn’t be surprised either. I would also not be surprised if they have no such agreement, but the sponsor is thrilled to let the pro play as many hands as possible.

East may not be ‘allowed’ to splinter, but this hand is hardly evidence of that. It wouldn’t occur to me to splinter with a 4441 13 HCP and a ‘main suit’ of Jxxx.
What do you make of this?
On that exact auction, it is almost always going to give partner UI if you don’t ask.
Blunders
Declarer should not be tanking with xx or xxx of spades.
