Illegal convention wins big IMPs

First, I'm sorry about the troll-like title. 

 

But second, one convention that's been on the burner (someone with more time can get the links) for a very long time is a 3N opening to show a good 4M opening. Many attempts to get this approved by C and C have been in vain.

 Yet, Bocchi/Sementa rolled this out in the 3rd quarter during Lavazza's rush:

Platnick opened 4 and played it there. Pretty sure he couldn't avoid 4 red suit losers. 

 

On Bocchi's cc, 3N was listed as a solid major. Perhaps solid is in the eye of the beholder. 

 

I don't know what the agreement Boye/Espen had about x but 5D is a sub-optimal contract and lost 14 (going off memory).
