4H NS: +620
Tournament Director Statement of Facts:
Called to the table after play had ceased, and cards returned to the board, by East. The auction was explained and it was agreed
that the second double (*1) was "slow". North agreed that this double was penalty oriented but elected to bid.
It was felt that North may/could have been influenced by the "slowness" of the double and did have a logical alternative of passing.
Adjusted Score to +200 for North/South
The Committee's decision:
The Committee ruled: TD's decision to stand.
Passing 3CX was a logical alternative for North and bidding 3H may have been influenced by the break in tempo before South's double.
