Director Ruling
Regardless of what West said the agreement was or was on the convention card, East's understanding different from the explanation. North/South are entitled to know the partnership understanding; if there is no mutual understanding, North/South are entitled to know that.
Claim including a revoke
This is what WBF LC said in 2001 'When there is an irregularity embodied in a statement of claim the Director follows the statement up to the point at which the irregularity (as for example a revoke) occurs and, since the irregularity is not to be accepted, he rules from ...

Mindless revoke
The revoke on trick 11 is established when declarer claims at trick 12.
Potential cheating method using Bridgemates
Don't let players erase scores. Instruct East to always ACCEPT, not accept an already ACCEPTed result.
Other as a logical alternative
You can always abstain and comment "Other: ..."
What does non leaping michaels show?
Marginally off-topic. what does 'minimum shape' mean? If your agreement was 6-4, 5-5, 6-5, (7-5, 8-5, 6-6, 7-6) but not 5-4, how would you respond to this poll?
