Playing the district semi-finals of the GNTs, we did not have this auction, although I DID open 2NT (18-20) with the 2272 14 count late in a match in which we were behind.

 

Partner failed to bid exclusion holding:

Now had partner transfered to HEARTS and bid exclusion, I would surely pass.  Spades I'm not sure its right.

 

Interesting side note, on the lie of the cards, the only making slam is 6 - but only from HIS side of the table.
