Aiyee, GIB, why do you do this to me?

Playing in a robot individual, GIB holds:

North
KQ65
92
754
KJ97

Opposite him, I open 1NT, GIB bids 2C, I bid 2H, GIB bids 2S showing 9 HCP and four spades.  I sign off in 2NT.

GIB bids 3S (?!)

With Jx of spades I am endplayed into bidding 3NT.  This has zero play and I go down one, when stopping in 2NT would have been worth a lot of matchpoints.

Why, oh why, did GiB bid 3S with that hand?  I mean, this is bridge 101, an everyday standard sequence that should require no thought from GIB.  What in its deeply disturbed circuits led it to believe that 3S was the proper bid?

Okay, done ranting.  Back to our regular posts about cheating.
