Was 4H a sensible contract? It sounds like the Vugraph operator lost the auction and just put in the final contract. Or there was a problem at the table.

What Paul said. There would have been another auction to 4; they don't have the play records either.

Pass showed a strong NT and 4H was "short clubs; pick a game".

Iíve played a fair bit on vugraph. The monitorís job is quite difficult, especially if the players bid and play quickly, which a lot do on routine hands.

Plus often times, in the end game, one player flashes his hands at an opponent, and the opponent nods, and puts his hand back in the board, giving the monitor little info.

Weird bids are explained by written notes, written in often difficult handwriting and shown to the screen mate...the monitor canít even see what was written and shared behind the screeN, and can have trouble reading the one gape can, barely, see. The monitors NEVER interrupt the players, for obvious reasons. Personally, I tend to forget the monitor is even there, and it would disrupt my focus if he or she felt 3ntitked to interrupt to get the auction and play correct.

Hence, I Ďlikedí Paulís comment
