4 West
NS: 0 EW: 0

Bidding:

  • 2  and 2NT alerted
  • 3 was not alerted; west did not make any comments about this before the lead

Play

  • NS cashed two top hearts and west took the remainder of the tricks.

You are called by NS. NS pose that no alert was made regarding 3, so some spade length in east would now be expected by west. The failure to alert is not disputed.

West claims he did not see that east did not alert 3. 3 shows a good weak two in spades systematically.

Also, NS suggest that east took his time to make his 3NT call, but this is disputed by EW.

How do you proceed / rule?

 

EDIT: Extra info as asked below: club game, no screens. Over 2NT EW play "standard"ie 3/// = bad weak two //good weak two /.
