Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

If South simply forgot that inverted raises were off after intervention then no misinformation has occured. Bad luck, rub of the green and all that.

First you have to prove the MI; if North says they thought it was XYZ then you can't simply say they were lying. You also can't penalise someone for not having a system card if the event doesn't require one.
2 diamond bid weak
First you have to determine if damage occurred (or whether the 'victims' simply shot themselves in th foot).

If North said it was weak in good faith then e/w are in a fix, there is no recourse for opps having a misunderstanding. Did anyone ask what the redouble was? Did west think his pass was forcing?
2 diamond bid weak
This TD wouldn't (but I may get overruled).
Thank you Zia!
If this story doesn't tell you that Bridge has a future; then nothing will.

Robin: we have already been told that there is no system card.

So the choices for redouble are: A) sos: I haven't really got diamonds B) if we are going down then bring on the flames C) I'm stronger than you might think p and this is definitely making Which would be the expert choice?
2 diamond bid weak
I might agree with 2x+2 for a potential ui issue, but e/w shot themselves in the foot. Most clubs in England don't require players to have a CC, perhaps the same was true here.
2 diamond bid weak
No expert pair I have played against would, and the Xx gives them more options.
