Screens in use.

N/S play different method of bidding against short clubs, or 3+ clubs.

2 = Majors. at least 5-5.  South forgot the system.  North sure had not forgotten the system and bid 4

When the bidding came back to South, making some decision over 4 doubled, South left the table, to ask if it would be allowed to make a 5 bid. because he realized that he had misbid, and was absolutely sure that his partner was bidding on his 5-5 major suit holding.

I answered by asking a simple question...   Do you have any unauthorized information?   South replied no.   I asked again...  Are your sure?,  and South was sure about no unauthorized information.

Then you can make any bid you want, was my answer.

Here the screen saved south.

But without screens,  and south seeing his partner alert of 2 as majors,  the contract would be 4 doubled, minus many tricks.
