Unnecessary Dentist
Leading from KQ10 is not tough so being at the table would help but leaving aside that evidence I think the 10 of clubs is a favourite to be in the west hand. I don't think its accurate to say that you are trading the diamond guess by ducking ...
Infraction no penalty
In what way did your opponents get "the best of it" ? All that happened is that the table was put back into the position it would of been in without someone misreading a bid. This incident has happened at my table a few times. In the original posters position I ...
Infraction no penalty
I think any right thinking human being would assume that the comment "Really" was involuntary. The argument you put to the contrary is silly. It is not until partner gives a total nonsense explanation that you might react.
Infraction no penalty

I think you should identify both suits with a 2 suited overcall and you should play them as any range. Doing something else is attempting a constructive 2 handed approach with a 4 handed weapon.
Need to Cash
If you give up a jump overcall of a 1 of a major opening in the lowest ranking suit you wouldn't have to worry about identifying your minor. As is you got a bit lucky that East was 4/4 until East forgot to bid 4NT over 3NT.
Phil Markey's bidding problem: 6 KQJ2 A52 JT642
I passed. Pard led a heart with his 4261 3 count (QS, JD) and dummy tracked a 6322 14 count. Declarer had a 2425 with not enough values because he was unsure just how strong 3S should be so an easy 4 light. If they run it is a likely ...
Phil Markey's bidding problem: 6 KQJ2 A52 JT642
I agree. It should come down to some table presence.
