Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?
It may well be unfair , and yes your hypothetical situation arises quite often. But I still fell asking then taking no action, if you have asked about none of the other bids, creates UI.
A curiosity
Ask Ghestem about bidding 3 over 1, I seem to remember it ended up rather badly for them. Isn't it a bugger when you cant remember the convention you invented.
Was this ruling correct?
I voted other, much info needed to make a reasonable decision. What did the director hear away from the table? What methods do E/W have to get to game? Did a player poll think getting to 4sp was even likely? Just because you can make a contract does not ...
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?

I did that in the worlds in Philadelphia, playing with Omar, only pair in the room to play 3nt, everyone else was in 6d-1. Sometimes Karma works in your favor.
Education Via the Scorecard
It’s an Acbl score thing, to do that you need to match point the whole board by hand and create adjustments for every pair in the field on that board. Not particularly fun in a matchpointed event across 4 sections. Technically you can do it by just giving the ...
Education Via the Scorecard
that would be John Portwood.
Education Via the Scorecard
@ John, What you are describing is giving the non offenders what the director or committee think might have been obtained absent UI. So the score plus the a likely percentage of a better score. Which is eminently reasonable. However it is not punishment it is attaining equity in the best ...
