What would you have done?
You should not call the director. If you think your opponents are cheating or have some weird agreement, just file a player memo. Then if it's a one time thing, nothing will come of it but if it happens repeatedly, there will be a record.

I don't understand this April fools joke
Fielding Partner's Forgetfulness
1. Partner should ask what 2c means before he bids. It's a good general practice. 2. I would pass 2s. If the 2c bidder has clubs, there's no chance partner is trying to transfer to clubs. If partner thinks they goofed, they would just pass 2c and beat ...
Michael Seamon Junior USBC (Part 3)
I like a precision club opener on the hand with eight clubs. If you open 2C your partner will never play you for this good a hand. South might like the KQ of clubs, but could never envision a game with barely any stoppers and only a seven point hand ...
ATB - aggressive slam bidding
Very amused that people would not open the North hand 1NT. Who cares what the hand is worth? Opening is not just about being constructive. 1NT makes life a lot harder for the opponents. Actual hand value often depends on what your partner has - if your partner has KJTx of ...

Identifying Bridge Proteges
We played Reid Barton and his partner, Emily Shen, in gnt c five years ago,,, I wonder if they still play bridge. :)
Unusual action with UI
Yes, for example, maybe they were 5251 and thought they were 3253 because they had some spades with their clubs. Who knows what the mistake was.
Unusual action with UI
I don't think bidding 5c is suggested by UI. If anything, it's counter suggested. If north opened an off shape 1NT, they might have a Singleton club. I think the club pro took a poor action, possibly related to his decision to game force light in high cards ...
Gazilli feedback from those who have played it
Well, I commented about the thread to him but I didn't know he was going to respond also. :)
