Nice route to slam

After the storng 2 and nebulous 2 waiting (0+, but lacking positive slam values with a good five card suit), East's raise promised support and at least one slam control. 4 and 4 showed controls. At that point West judged that slam needed one more trick from partner; 4 elicited a second control bid and slam was excellent. This ought to have carried the event but East fell from grace with a phantom sacrifice on the next hand. Don't sac at IMPs :)
