IMP scoring, Commonwealth Nations qualifying round, Gold Coast, Queensland 2018

This contract required East to hold the singleton A (or a void) and the A. It also needed West to hold K to no more than three, and the diamonds to break. This adds up to around 0.1%, but as you can see the contract was cold.

Should East-West have saved in 5 (down three)? No, for that would have cost them an additional 60 aggregate points when North-South bid the equally cold 5NT.

What is the least likely contract you have seen at the table that could not be beaten?
