Daylight robbery in Reno and my first Platinum point!

I got my first Platinum point in Reno! Memories from my first attempt at NABC+ event is not so sweet. I was literally slaughtered when I tried LEBHAR IMP pairs 2 years ago with my regular partner. This time with a new partner we made our second attempt at SILODOR pairs and NABC+ FAST pairs. With less than 2000 master points between us, we did not expect a magic. But to our surprise, we made both the finals and got overall placement in FAST pairs and I finally got my Platinum point! We had a 58% final session in SILODOR pairs and to see our names next to Meckwell in our section was a real thrill.

Board #3 from the final session of SILODOR pairs helped us to get a good score.

I was sitting South. My partner Ari Sippola (from Finland) found a rather creative 3N bid to silence the opponents. A low club was led which was won by declarer's K and declarer claims 8 tricks. Down 1. 95% score. Here is the full deal:
