This is how the final began. In the Close Room, East could have passed 3S, or perhaps, West might have made a negative double to let East choose a black suit. Because the openings were different in two rooms, there were subtle differences. In the Open Room, West was merely correcting 3H, in the Close Room, West was making a \'free bid\' of 3S.
