What i simply devised when once confronted to this bid:
double= pseudo-balanced 4-4 minors
3S, 4C = transfer
3NT = to play

i would have voted for “other” and am primarily upset by west's attitude. What he did is called a double shot: if opponents stop short of 7, he keeps quiet, if they reach 7, he calls for an adjustment. Board was made unplayable by next table player's comment. average+ for NS, average- for EW for failing to call TD at the appropriate time.

Declarer played C2 twice (discard on 2nd round of diamonds, then club trick 5). If he really won 5 hearts, 3 spades and DA, he didn't concede 1 down.

Typical of a lenient society when someone needs to recall one should follow the rules!

Does your statistical analysis take into account the time dimension? I mean the evolution or stability of every pair's behaviour? Is time included in the list of predictors?

If you want to stop bridge to be an opposition game, which i can understand, you could go a step further: institute a jury who, on every palyed deal, will attribute a mark to both sides, related to their merits. The same as what is used in notation sports. If it works for artistic skating, why not for duplicate bridge?

as a generic defense,

is efficient and still simpler as it ignores the meaning of the overcall.

Unscrupulous clients would quickly find the solution: they hire a cheat then make him the captain of the team.

If we are speaking about the same occurence, it was 2014 french Cup and if it's the same journalist, he gathered the videos on a web site which unfortunately is no more available but maybe they are stored somewhere. It occured that the authorities he showed them didn't take them seriously until boye come in with other evidence. Indeed, there was evidence of using pen with imperfect screens and not with opaque ones. If somebody wants to analyse again FN manierisms, it will only be efficient and persuasive, as we now know, if it's made very rigourously and not approximatively with qualitative analysis. N. Hammond and K. Woosley had shown the way: crowdsourcing with work shared between people not exchanging information directy among them, formulation of hypotheses from initial files, test of hypotheses on different working files, calculation of probability of coincidence and so on.
