A ruling conundrum
Quoting one of the regulations that I am aware of: " Any action chosen by the player in receipt of unauthorised information, qualifies as a logical alternative for that particular player." This comes from Australia, but the EBU have an alternative interpretation of law 16 (white book) that leads to the ...
A ruling conundrum

Does the quick bid by the opponent bar you? No Are you barred from the auction because partner broke tempo? No Should your opponent, allegedly a TD, said what he said? No, because he is just a player at the table and because HE IS WRONG. Should you bid 5D ...
TD case- Am I wrong?
If facts are correct, NS seem to have a concealed (and maybe only implicit) agreement, based on UI information.
