Actual hands are not really relevant, but I can provide them if anyone asks.

North called the director and wanted to establish that East had a long pause before bidding.

Both East and West disagreed, both felt the pause is no more than 5-10 seconds.

Whether there is a long pause or not is disputed, but my question is on what establishes UI?

I always thought as long as a bid is made (X in this case), then there is no issue with UI.

The issue is "on" only when (1) there is a long pause (2) the bid is Pass.

Is the above correct?
