Once E shows a 14-16 NT hand (1NT = 10-12 at this vulnerability) rightly or wrongly, you leap to 4. You evaluate your 8 losers as good enough for game opposite a strong(ish) NT. You have 2 way nmf but this will give the OPPs lots of artificial bids that they can double for a lead. *f you don't like the bidding you lose as the other table is in this game, making. 

The OPPs do not appear to be especially strong or weak. This is the mixed swiss NABC+ event in San Diego.

The play goes:

Trick 1: Q, A, small, small

Trick 2: 6, small, 9, K

Trick 3: small , K, small , small

Trick 4: T, J, A, small

Trick 5: 9, middle, A, middle

Trick 6: small , small , Ruff, small

And now we are at the cross-roads.  What next?  (your hand is now xxx, xx, Kx, Dummy is KQx, xxx, x and one high trump is still out)
