responding to a save bid with a meld bid, was bot wrong to pass?
#1
I got a complaint from a user who kindly saved the hand history for me. Here's the hand history:

Here's my verbal description:

Dealer's left passes (which was strange to me, but let's ignore this - dealer's left was not a bot, so I cannot fix this!).

Dealer's partner makes a save bid. This is their hand. So, not a declarer hand! It's a save bid. Obviously, the dealer cannot be sure about this.

Dealer's right passes.

The (human) dealer has 46 meld, and gives a meld bid, +5.

Then the dealer's partner, my bot, passes.

Questions:

1) Was the dealer correct in giving a meld bid? The human dealer complained to me because the bot did not respond with +1. However, my thought is that in this scenario, there is no reason to give a meld bid. Is there? How should the bot (or a human partner) "read" this?

2) Did the bot make the ultimate betrayal by responding to this meld bid with a pass? Should a partner always bid +1 in this scenario? By "this scenario" I mean: both opponents have passed, first partner has made a bid of 50 or let's say 51, and teammate made a meld bid. Does it matter that this might have been a save bid? That is, should the situation differ if neither partner is the dealer?

Thank you for any feedback!
