Playing IMPS in a recent national event you are dealt West's hand as penultimate board of the last match of the second qualifying day. Every single IMP counts and could be decisive towards qualification for the 3rd day of the event. NS are playing precision and correctly alerted the 4 call. The A of is led, dummy comes down and North starts thinking. After 6 minutes he plays the J of . One second later South finds the killing shift of a club.

North is entitled to take such a long time since it is at trick one
Nobody is allowed to take 6 minutes to play a card
