While the poll may not implicitly reveal the hesitation, the poll itself likely implies a hesitation.

“standard is as following…The 3NT bid has an undisclosed shortage and 4♣ asks (4♦/4♥: short in that suit, 4♠: short clubs).”

Those “standard” answers are what I call natural with substitution. Other “standard” answers are coded high/middle/low and low/middle/high.

If one thinks I don't think there is a “standard”, one would be correct. YMMV

“The statement about unethical behavior, however, does not appear here.”

Same 5th bullet under “The Appeal” in OP. Assuming “here” is there.

Uh, Daily Bulletin 9, pg 9. Link below is quirky* on my computer, maybe works better for others:

Haven't double-checked for 100% accuracy, but what was in OP.

So much for nobody playing with them, nobody playing events they were entered in…

Here's what the daily bulletin said on page 9 https://cdn.acbl.org/nabc/2018/03/bulletins/db9.pdf">https://cdn.acbl.org/nabc/2018/03/bulletins/db9.pdf

The Appeal:

• It was the unethical use of partner’s BIT that
produced the diamond lead.

EditAdd: I answered the question not remembering it was already answered in that way in OP. Questioner apparently also forgot or didn't notice.

Off-topic, but responsive…

There are 2 smiley faces, natively ☺ and ☻, created by holding down the alt key, pressing (num) 1 or 2 respectively and releasing the alt key. Color is controlled by bbcode [color=red], size by bbcode [size=33] before the character (turning it off by [/color] etc after the character if necessary, ie normal text following).

☺ ☻

Another approach is to “switch”, ie 2om=, 2=om, everything else “normal”.

Yes, a defense more likely to be found in the post-mortem than at the table.

Concurring is not the same as calling for a ruling. Having said that…

In general, while I might well try to convince my partner not to appeal, if he insisted, it is hard to imagine I wouldn't concur.

Too bad no video…

“99% of the time the tray would be flying back across the table in two seconds where both players have made a routine pass.”

Video would have been nice, not only for the final round, but the previous round(s) – for example (but maybe off-topic) it would be interesting to know how long the 7NT bid took.

Fantunes 2-bids are always unbalanced, never 5332 or 5422.

It wasn't “meant” (or agreed) as exclusion, rather that was a fringe benefit of the earlier auction.

Too bad there was no video…that would clear up a lot.

On a similar note…as I was walking through the gym, a member asked me if I had dropped a bill. I said yes, a $20 bill. As he tried to give it to me, I refused, saying I had just been toying with him. When faced with a random choice, choose the one with the best payout (there was no cost of being wrong here).

“S failed to double the 5♠ keycard response.”

I wouldn't read too much into that, YMMV.
