Not many, which confirms my ruling.
Actually, something had happened earlier, of course.
Partner of this pollster, in first hand, had passed and then called the
director "I wanted to do something different". I told him this was not
possible, and told his partner not to use that information.
When he subsquently laid down a 16-count 3334, all was revealed. The
contract was easily made, but I still had to decide whether partner had
used the UI. Clearly not in overcalling, which was a normal bid, but
passing? I decided against ruling, and I'm glad you all agree that there
was nothing to do.
