August 2020 – Un-Authorised Explanation

Local Club – 2020. Hand supplied by Eros

* West alerted East’s 2♠ bid and when asked described it as “weak”.
** When North “passed”, South alerted and without being asked described it as “denying a spade stop”.

The final 3♠ contract by East went two off, when declarer played a small spade towards dummy (losing to both the ♠J and the ♠K). East now called the Director.


East somewhat irate, now told the Director that he would have played the spades differently if he had not been mis-led by South’s remark, and also South should not have given an explanation.
