A deal from the Swiss Teams at the Madeira Festival, a cracking tournament that you should all attend next year.

East played in 3NT on the lead of J, ducked to his king. He ran Q, which held, played a diamond to the jack, which held, and tabled his cards announcing that he would take five tricks in diamonds and three in hearts to go with the spade he had already won. This was duly conceded, for it seemed to all concerned that the tricks were in plain sight.

I make no further observation - I leave that to you.

For I live at Table Mountain, and my name is Truthful James,

And I wish to God that we could have some proper laws on claims.
