Its the final day of the Australian playoffs, down to the last 10 pairs in stage 2,  and whilst you generally avoid knowing the score your partner tells you that you hold a slim lead with 4 ten board matches remaining.

You are screen mates with North and this is the first board of the day. As the board gets pushed through after the 4H bid you enquire about 2NT. It is probably a heart raise but in the usual way you are just checking and keeping track of the auction. North is finishing a brief 1 line response confirming your suspicion as the board gets pushed back. 

North stops briefly and then puts the green card on the tray. You suffer a kind of shock for a second or 2 and then likewise pick up a green card and put it on the tray and start removing your bids. North suddenly wakes up.
