Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
Norths pass is clear evidence that Souths hand type was stronger than expected.
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
Actually it seems that you have to define weak the way the director sees it. And that is just wrong

I think this is the crux of what I am asking. 1 shows 5+ spades and 12/20 points. The director ruled that no call would be comparable, South was allowed to make any legal call including pass thereby barring partner from any further action.
