Playing in the Toronto Mixed BAM, I heard my partner open 1 in 2nd seat neither vul.  A Jacoby 2NT response drew 4 from partner, showing a minimum balanced hand.  After I continued with RKC, partner showed 2 keycards without the queen of hearts.  At this point it's time to place the final contract, with the four obvious choices being 6, 6NT, 7 and 7NT.  This beautiful board-a-match hand is a battle of wits between you and your opponent at the other table. What bid would you choose, and why?
