You have to post the hand, or a link to the hand to have any idea what happened.

Well, it's easy to see what happened - 4NT asked for keycards in hearts; 6S was then taken as a cuebid. Makes no sense to have it as a cuebid; but it also doesn't make much sense to bid that way either.
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

Please use the "GIB Robot Discussion" forum to post complaints about robot play, or use the "Send Robot Report" function in BBO. I've moved this thread.

Last couple of times I looked for it, the "Send Robot Report" function wasn't there any more. To me that was that final clear statement from BBO that there was no longer any intention to improve GIB.

To KSK - if you want to hundreds, or thousands, of comments from players about GIB errors, just read this forum for, say, the last 5 years.
