Playing a regional KO match you would lose by 7 imps, your opponents bid and made 6H on the following:

Ok, we have all had bad beats and seen low probabilty slams which make, but our declarer could have claimed when dummy hit. You might want to think about how that is possible before you turn to the next page.

Here is the entire deal and auction:

Yup. Just your everyday 0-0-6-7 hand. On the auction, West has 7 spades and East has at least 7 clubs. With no lightner double the deal is "known". South, a very good declarer, studied dummy then looked at me (I was East) and smiled. I nodded. Yesterday I was the bug.
