Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Puposely revoking
It's possible that the player never realized he had a second spade -- perhaps the other one was sorted with the clubs. Perhaps a Player Memo is the most appropriate action after all. If the player is seen to be doing this sort of thing repeatedly, appropriate charges can be ...
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: J7532 QT 4 AQ963

Suspect Record?
I found this in a list of Kaplan quotes, probably referring to the same hand you are: (Holding a monster: AKQxx/AKxx/---/AKxx Bramley hears RHO open 2NT showing a diamond preempt; he cuebids four times diamonds, ending at 6 making seven) I must say that if any partner ...
