Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How well do you understand restricted choice?
For a real life case, George Foreman, former heavyweight boxing champion, has 5 sons named George. He also has a daughter named Georgetta.
Robots did me dirty
Relying on GIB to have made the "correct" preference with longer support for one of partner's suits is playing with dynamite. Sometimes GIB will make a preference with 1 or 2 cards when holding 5 cards in the other suit. Just another bidding bug that has been around for ...
Extras or Not?
OP said the opening bid was 1. Wouldn't you open 1NT if hearts and diamonds were exchanged? With your sample hand, I would consider my options and open a 15-17 1NT.

Explainable, But How?
According to Truscott, Kehela had a 180 degree change in position some time after observing Reese-Schapiro.
Another Reese-Schapiro Hand
>>> Another thing I can't fathom about this is the supposed method chosen of cheating. Why chose such a blatant and unusual method of signaling if you didn't want to get caught? Hmmm, it always seems blatant and unusual after somebody figures out the method of cheating. If you ...
