Slightly off shape 1NT?
I make this a perfect hand to open 1NT but with the 15-17 range over a 2NT bid or equivalent I would bid 3d to let partner know to bid 3NT with diamond help or just play 3D if not.
Ruling
What I find the most amusing about this post is that there are now 52 responses!!!
How would you rule?
I agree with the comment that 2D was forcing Stayman as how else could declarer say he knew his partner didn't have hearts. Clearly if 2d was a transfer, East would have bid 3H and certainly over 3d bid hearts. To me it just seems like the line from ...
How would you rule?
Gonzalo, not exactly but you can not just ignore everything else and say you only did something because he had to have a certain distribution. And John, not suggesting a split score but a penalty for the offending side for not knowing what they were playing or using UI.

WOLD is Senior USA1
Realized I hadn't seen all of you after your win in Chicago, so a big congrats to all that I didn't see.
Provide the most difficult defence
I must admit passing 4S with North hand is amazing!
Four high-level leads
Actually at the table that is what declarer did but timing was a little off. I believe you need clubs 3-3 so leave that for later and just duck a spade but once you find out spades are on your right, you may go for a heart, diamond squeeze on ...
Four high-level leads
Just for info...at the table I led the Queen of diamonds thinking the heart lead might be too dangerous. I believe winning and ducking a spade early seems better than ducking the diamond. At the table declarer I think made a slight error in cashing his clubs first which ...
