A remarkable bid

Perhaps this hand could have featured in Avon's series.  You are North, playing a KO match against an extremely strong team.

Declarer won the top diamond lead in dummy, tried two rounds of trumps (East had Jxxx) and followed with J: he guessed to play dummy's King which was the winning decision since West had Ax.

The author of one report on this match commented that the "decision to back in with 4 looks remarkable".
