I sent this in before but I think I had the wrong sub-forum . This seems to be the right place for my remarks.

I don't recall the exact hand, but the circumstances were that my robot partner responded to my Stayman bid with two spades, even though one of the opponents had already
opened the bidding with one spade. To make matters worse, the robot had five spades, so knew for certain that I had less than four. Surely,the instructions to the robot in responding to Stayman should be modified to prevent this. This caused a real problem, since I had a weak hand with diamonds and hearts, and "knew" that I would be playing the hand at either 2H or 2D, ( unless the opponents continued ) either of which I expected to be a better contract than 1NT.

GIB is very clever. If figured out you were trying to be tricky and GIB put an end to that.
