If behind screens, I suspect the 2NT bid had been alerted ? If so it seems quite normal that the opponent on the same side of the screen asked about the alert, doesn't it ?

It looks strange to me, to:
1) Alert a bid and then,
2) when asked for an explanation, reply “undiscussed”

However, if the 2NT bid has not been alerted, then undiscussed seems OK

Or add filtering for that module in adblock, it reduces the size…

Sure, as every regional/sectional spot where are held regional/sectional events have their own screens.
For example, where I play sectional/regional, there are roughly enough screens for 4 sections of 15 tables. And I think it is the same for each of the 30 districts.
I suspect though that the qualification process may differ from the US, here you have to qualify from sectional event to regional event and finally to national finals.

If i remember well, there are 3 rooms at the seat of French Bridge League which could host roughly 30 screened tables each.. It is not so far from 100.

And more than that, even finals for lower strats players are played with screens, as it should be IMO.

And true, as Marc stated, that I only play without screens in clubs, charity tournaments or festival. But any official event is played with screens.

Indeed, the intent was to know if 2 was an option or 4 automatic.
Didn't plan to have also so many 2 bidders…

So it seems it was close :-)

The 3 bidder had:
5
KT843
AKQ87
T3

and S:
9876
Q2
542
AKQ2

Auction went 5 p p X
for down 1 was worth 7/42

Pass over 4 for down 1, when s are 2-2 and s 3-2, was worth 28/42

Thx all for your comments though I still don't know what is the percentage action :-)

Partner is always at least 5-5. A typical overcall would be:
xx
KQ10xx
AQJxx
x

we don't play 2/1 but my p made a 2 relay on this hand just in case opener has a nice fitted hand. I had not and we played 2 :)

Thanks for the votes, wish i had been a hero but I didn't find the killing lead…

Full hand was:

N: Q982…AK4….10854..J10
E: AK10…Q1086..AJ92…74
S: J5…..J52….KQ3….AK962

Only a lead would have set it…

maybe because part knows s are 4-4, has no honor and is looking for the setting trick ?

According to 8 switch, declarer's hand should be 3334 or 2335 and so one of the following:

Kxx xxx QTx AKQx ==> only 14 count but sometimes…
KQx xxx QTx AKQx
Qxx or xxx Axx QTx AKQx ==> 9 tricks whatever I do

xx Axx QTx AKQxx ==> 9 tricks whatever I do
Kx xxx QTx AKQxx
KQ xxx QTx AKQxx ==> declarer should have tested s after cashing one

if 8 was a deceiptive move with a honor, I will not be enough clever to find that part has switched 8 with KQ8x.

8. No hope if declarer has A. Assuming 8 from part shows no interest in , declarer has already 8 tricks 4, 3 and A. So hope for A in part hand…
