Play in 6NT
Just in case anyone is curious about the actual layout: East was 4-2-4-3 with QJxx and Qx.

Thank you Jeff. Although we really need to thank the people that take their time to comment and discuss the possible lines. I think calling my post an "article" is an overstatement. So thanks to all, a special wink to my Spanish friends. I will post the full hand in ...

Maybe 6 was making or maybe someone was crazy enough to make a move on this hand and went down in 5. In any case, general opinion seems to be clear enough :).
Better line in slam?
My firned ruffed two spades as proposed, then played for the J fall or squeeze possibilities, and made the contract. But he was not sure if that was the right approach and asked me to post the hand.
Better line in slam?
Best line seems to be clear now. Thank you all for your comments. For the record, it was successful at he table.
Bridge Players and the movie world
Unfortunately the new generations think of something else when talking about "The Avengers" ... You can also say that Diana Rigg was the only woman to marry James Bond in a movie.

In the first scene where Bogart appears in Casablanca he is in his office analyzing a chess position; that was an inner tribute to his interest in chess.
Bad Luck trumps broke!
I think in many (if not most) tables, West showed also his Diamond suit. That made South concern about the 4-0 break more reasonable. Particularly if East somehow managed to find a double of the final contract.
