At the table, South passed. 

When West bid 1, passed back around, South passed again.

 

There is nothing in this pair's system notes to say that 1 is anything but a natural, normal response.

The WC Official Handbook describes North's call as "a psyche".

 

Here is the link to the Bridge Winners poll:
