Isn't it simpler to detect or block the EM waves at this point? For instance, each side of the screen can be a Faraday cage.

So, in simpler words, a 6-level bid shows exactly one between Q and K and asks about the other, right?

So what about the hand in page 3? OP writes that it comes from a goulash event.

Unfortunately if goulash hands are included in your dataset many statistics may be skewed. It's just a different game: not only for the distribution stats, but also in the way one bids and plays. And I am afraid that the bias is going to be even larger for high-level contracts.

Why playing preempts at all against these opponents? They seem good enough at taking away all their bidding space by themselves.

The lead of the 7 likely comes from shortness, since with a long suit a skilful defender would preserve it to aim for the beer.

If your one-time sequence is not really random (like the one in your last example, if I understand correctly it has period 10), then it is not out of question that some entropy-based cryptanalysis method can reveal that there is some information exchange.

I am not familiar with 5NT pick-a-slam, but doesn't South risk getting a 6 answer to it?

I find it difficult to construct a hand where partner is missing four aces and two kings and decides that it is a good idea to skip Blackwood.

I might be biased since I see all four hands, but is that defense really so difficult to find at the table that it should raise suspects?

This looks like a usability problem to me. Don't blame the user.
