Ron Lel's bidding problem: K863 J2 A92 A962
So after a pass Richard, what is your call after South offers 4 and partner passes?

Is this a trick question?
Director err!
Extended range weak 2’s were HUMs...
Director err!
I'm not arguing that the Director wasn't wrong, I'm simply stating that the poster didn't know that the Director was wrong at the time of the ruling. Consequently, he had to ask for a belated adjustment. I play many HUM methods - but before I play them ...
Director err!
Director err!
I found the only answer to playing legal HUM methods was knowing the Charts better than the directors do. The OPEN chart has created some long sought after opportunities to be especially creative. Sadly, you can only blame yourself for this result.
I feel your pain. After opening a strong 1 (alert), I cringe every time LHO overcalls 2 without any discussion. Easily 25% of the time they don’t know what they’re doing and don’t know it, and we have to bear the brunt of the UI ...
"Expected" and "systematic" can often be at odds. If you are playing with an unknown partner and they alert your reverse, it may not be expected, but it would be systematic and wake you up.
An alert in this situation is akin waving a red flag saying "do you actually have the points for a reverse?" If that isn't UI... And would you need to alert reverses in GF auctions if they are strong?
It’s situational. So it could provide UI.
